March PAW This Month!

PAW Dog of the Month: Queen


Hi! I’m Queen, the sweetest pittie around! I’m 2 years old and 48 lbs. of love! Although I'm 2, I still act like a puppy! I have a lot of energy, looooove to play with doggy friends (and don't always take "no" for an answer from other dogs; I don't get why they don't always want to play- just like meee!), and am still working on my house manners. Sometimes you just have to chew on things! I also really enjoy playing with humans and haven't yet learned that they don't always like me to play with my teeth...apparently they think it hurts. Bummer! For this reason, I'd do best in a home with kids over the age of 12.

I can't wait to meet you; I promise I'll make a great furry family member!

Thank you for helping Queen find her forever home!

PAW Cat of the Month: Fallon


Fallon is an 8 month old grey and white male kitten. He is a big boy for his age, making him a very handsome guy.

He loves to play with his cat toys and cat friends. He loves anything moving around at the end of a string from a stick! You can find Fallon roaming his foster home with a catnip ball or mouse in his mouth where he will toss and chase it.

He loves being pet and get scritches on his head and under his chin! He enjoys attention and spending time with his humans, too.

Fallon would do best in a home that is patient and loving. He is an observant boy and as every day goes by he becomes more eager for attention, pets, and scritches. He is still jumpy with sudden movement and is still learning that humans can be great friends. With some time, love, and effort Fallon will be a confident house cat!

Fallon does well with other cats, he even has a senior cat as a great friend! He can be a single family cat, but will also do great joining an established pack.

Fallon has tested negative for FIV/FElV, neutered, and is up to date on his vaccinations.

If you'd like to be considered for adoption, please complete the adoption application here:

Thank you for helping Fallon find his forever home!

Upcoming Fundraising Opportunities!

How Maryland and Federal Employees Can Help PAW

Maryland Charity Campaign (MCC): is a workplace charitable giving program that offers State Employees and eligible Retirees the opportunity to contribute to charities using the convenience of payroll deduction. Currently, more than 800 charities participate in the campaign, including PAW.  If you are a MD State employee or eligible retiree and would like to donate to PAW through the MCC, please go to: Thank you!

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC): About 85% of PAW expenses this year will be for veterinary care and boarding for our rescue animals. Our funding is entirely dependent on individual bequests, donations at fundraising events, the website, and the Combined Federal Campaign. CFC is the workplace charitable donation vehicle for active and retired federal employees and contractors, and represents more than 22,000 charities. We receive about 20% of our income through CFC, a 50% decline over recent years. Donations to all CFC charities are down and this year's fundraising atmosphere will be particularly challenging. If we are to continue to rescue, heal, and place animals at our current pace, we need to raise significantly more CFC funds. If you are an active or retired federal employee and would like to donate through CFC, please be sure to speak with your agency CFC coordinator. You can also ask your CFC coordinator to get us an invitation to their charity fair!  CFC events occur primarily between early October and mid-November on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you are interested in helping at one of the fairs, please contact Sanjeeta at You do not need to be a federal employee or retiree to help at the fairs. We really appreciate your help!

ASPCA's 2020 Top Pet Toxin List

From our friends at the ASPCA...

Just in time for National Poison Prevention Week, the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) released their 2020 Top Pet Toxin List. While over-the-counter and prescription medications remained serious concerns, there were some surprises in response to the drastic changes in people’s lives last year.

The COVID-19 pandemic kept many pet owners at home where they baked and gardened, giving their pets access to potentially toxic items like chocolate, yeast dough, and plants—all of which saw an increase in case volume. And with adoption and foster rates up, APCC experienced an overall increase in cases in 2020.
