I'm back for my FOURTH year raising money for CAWS. Strut Your Mutt is our largest fundraiser of the year, and every dollar raised makes a huge impact.
91% of our expenses go toward animal care (veterinary, training, supplies, etc) and we often have rescue pricing agreements with vets, which lets your donations stretch further than they otherwise would.
Donations to CAWS go toward four programs:
- Rescue and adoption for cats and dogs.
- TNVR (trap-neuter-vaccinate-return) programs for feral cats.
- Low-income veterinary assistance to keep owned pets in loving homes.
- Medical care for community cats.
CAWS plays an important role in the shelter/rescue ecosystem. We do not intake the same volume of animals as other organizations, but, as a foster-based rescue, we try to help animals most at risk in shelter systems -- neonates and elderly, those with higher medical needs, and those struggling in shelters.
