Huge Raffle for Paddy's Paws at Bike Night!

To say we are excited about our upcoming Bike Night fundraiser on August 15th, is an understatement! We can't wait until Tuesday! We had volunteers working last night on compiling all of the generous donations from our local communities and supporters and are just in awe. Thanks to our donors...we have OVER 40 baskets just filled with fabulous items. Most baskets easily have a value over $100 or even $200! These photos only share a small portion of the baskets, so you'll have to come check it out in person!
Please help us spread the word about our fundraiser. It is rain or shine, at Boardtracker Harley Davidson in Janesville from 5-9 pm! You do not need to be present to win for our raffle basket drawing, but should be prepared to add your name and number to each ticket. We will also be having 50/50 raffles, live music, beer garden, and adorable Paddy's Paws alumni there to mingle with the crowd!

Woof, Wag, and Wood Sign Creations!

Paddy's Paws is excited to partner with Luminated Inspirations Wine & Sign to have instructor, Michelle Maurer, lead us in creating unique, personalized wood sign creations! 

The cost is $50 per person, with a generous portion of that being donated to Paddy's Paws! We know the dogs will be sharing their "woofs of thanks" and "wagging their tails" for your support! There will be a variety of designs that you will be able to choose from, including non-dog related signs too. Color scheme will also be up to you! All tools, materials, and instructions for making your wood sign are included in the registration cost. This is a DIY workshop where instructor, Michelle Mauerer, will guide you step by step through the process until you have a beautiful sign to take home. You are welcome to bring your own beverages or snacks, with bottled water being provided.

Here is the registration link: https://www.luminatedinspirations.com/products/woof-wag-and-wood-sign-creations-sunday-oct-1st-from-1pm-4pm

At the time of registration, you will select which wood sign design you would like to create. Keep in mind the more intricate the design and the more words, the more work this DIY project is. There will be limited spots available so we encourage you to register early. Thank you!

Donate!

Did you know that Paddy's Paws doesn't keep adoption fees for the dogs we adopt out, but that we make sure to be responsible for all their vet care once they are in our program? It's true! We rely solely on donations to help with our medical bills and send all adoption fees back to Houston to aid in their rescue work!
The vet care our rescues receive is always top of line, and we wouldn't have it any other way! But...this month alone, Paddy's Paws has nearly $6,000 in vet bills...and we could use a little help!
If you're able to make a donation, no matter the size, we would be so thankful! Please help us, help them!

Zoe and Zibby

We would love for Zoe and Zibby to find their forever homes! They arrive in Wisconsin this Sunday and do not have any approved adopters meeting them. These sweet girls came from the Brenham Animal Shelter in Texas. They were there for about four weeks until they were rescued. They are playful pups who enjoy playing with their toys. We anticipate that these girls will get quite big when they are full-grown. They are very outgoing and love other dogs and people. They will be four months at their time of travel and already weigh 25 pounds. They are lab/great pyrenees mixes.

April

April needs our help in finding a forever home in Wisconsin where she can live out her golden years. She is a 9 year old purebred Weimaraner who is losing her home. Her previous owner had a stroke and is no longer able to care for her. April is very obedient, housetrained, and good around cats, kids, and other dogs. She would love nothing more than a person, or family, to be loyal and dedicated to...and she even can bring you the paper!
