April PAW This Month!

PAW Dog of the Month: Miles


Miles is a 1.5 year old, 44 lb., Labrador Retriever mix. Miles is a goofball who likes people, enjoys playing and his toys, and would be a good dog for a family with kids who he can play with. He is gentle in play, loves to be petted, and readily accepts handling. Miles will sit, stay and come when instructed. He loves playing with stuffed animals and tennis balls, will bring them to you so you'll play too, and readily gives them up. He is good with other dogs and loves to engage in play!

Thank you for helping Miles find his forever home!

PAW Cat of the Month: Ginger


Ginger is a 1.5 year old female tabby. Ginger is a delightful girl with a fun personality. She is adorably talkative and enjoys to greet her foster at the door. Ginger loves people! Once she gets to know a person, she readily climbs onto laps for petting. The way to make fast friends with Ginger is if you happen to have a brush or comb. Ginger is so excited to be brushed that she will climb all over you and will stay there for as long as you're willing to brush her fur! 

Ginger is very curious and observant. She has a fondness for high perches where she enjoys keeping an eye on her domain. From windows to cat trees, and even bookcases, any high place is a happy place for Ginger.

Ginger is wonderful and friendly with humans but would much prefer to be the only cat in your life!

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

If you would like to meet Ginger via a Facetime or Zoom video call, as well as ask questions about her, please complete the application here: www.paw-rescue.org/adopt and we will be in touch.

If you have any other questions, please contact Annaliesa at catmanager@paw-rescue.org.

Thank you for helping Ginger find her 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:  https://mcc.maryland.gov/. 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 psanjeeta@gmail.com. You do not need to be a federal employee or retiree to help at the fairs. We really appreciate your help!

The Great Outdoors and Your Pet: Staying Safe and Environmentally Conscious

From our friends at the ASPCA....

This Earth Day, we hope to celebrate the beauty of our planet, and for many of us, that starts with getting out into nature. And, as the weather continues to get warmer, we’re looking forward to spending more time outside with our pets. While we encourage everyone to enjoy activities like hiking and camping with your furry friends, there are a few things you may want to keep in mind.
