December PAW This Month!

PAW Dog of the Month: Maury


Maury is a 10-month-old, 35 lb., Treeing Walker Coonhound mix. He is a true sweetie. When he first sees you, he is all wiggles, wags, and kisses. He is a playful, inquisitive boy who is eager to check things out. Being a puppy, he is an energetic guy and could use an active family.  We think he would do best in a home with older kids or adults only. He walks well on a leash and responds well to commands and affection. On walks he shows a desire to play with other dogs. Who wouldn't want to meet this cutie?!

Thank you for helping Maury find his forever home!

PAW Cat of the Month: Sina


Sina is a petite one-year-old tuxedo cat with white paws and chest, and a streak of white on her nose and vibrant green eyes. She is a very playful girl with fun kitten energy! She is energetic, playful, social, friendly, and curious. Sina hasn't met a cat toy she doesn't want to play with! She spends lots of time batting and playing like a kitten. She is a wonderful kitty that would do well in a home with people who can appreciate her energy and are ready to play!

At this time, we believe she would do best as an only cat and in a home with older children.

Sina is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and tested negative for FIV/FELV.

If you would like to meet Sina via a Facetime or Zoom video call, as well as ask questions about her, please complete the application below and we will be in touch.

If you have any other questions, please contact Annaliesa at

Thank you for helping Sina find her forever home!

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!
