November PAW This Month!

PAW Dog of the Month: Lola


Lola is a 1 year old pointer mix who weighs about 60 lbs. She is a happy and friendly girl who bonds quickly. She can be a little mouthy in play but loves fetch and toys. She is adorable, loving, playful, and very attuned to cues from her people. She can be a little unsure when meeting other dogs and dog-selective.  She would do well in a home as an only dog and with children 15 and older.

Thank you for helping Lola find her forever home!

PAW Cat of the Month: Whoops! No cats this month. Cat adoptions are at an all time high!

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!

Thanksgiving Safety Tips

From our friends at the ASPCA...

Thanksgiving is a time for friends, family and holiday feasts—but also a time for possible distress for our animal companions. Pets won’t be so thankful if they munch on undercooked turkey or a pet-unfriendly floral arrangement, or if they stumble upon an unattended alcoholic drink.

Check out the following tips for a fulfilling Thanksgiving that your pets can enjoy, too:
