March PAW This Month!

PAW Dog of the Month: Tala


Meet Tala! She is a 4-year-old, 10lb., Jack Russell terrier mix who was found as a stray. Tala is very people-oriented! If you are looking for a constant companion and cuddler, she might be the dog for you. She is energetic and enjoys playing with toys but also loves a blanket and comfy lap. Tala is a fast learner, food-motivated, and knows some basic commands such as sit, down, and come. She is dog-selective and would love a home where she can be the only dog diva! Tala would do best in a home with a fenced yard and someone with JRT experience.

Thank you for helping Tala find her forever home!

PAW Cat of the Month: Stanley


Stanley is a precious, incredibly friendly, male who is estimated to be between 3 and 5 years old. This sweetheart loves to hang around people! Stanley is a chill guy who also enjoys the company of other cats - as long as they’re not aggressive! He is very laid back and gets along with everybody. Stanley would be an ideal addition to just about any family but would especially love to be the center of someone’s undivided attention!

Stanley is neutered, up to date on all age appropriate vaccinations, is microchipped, and has tested negative for both FIV and FELV. If Stanley feels like the perfect addition to your family, Please Complete PAW’s Cat Adoption Application at Once your application is received, a volunteer will be in touch with you within a few days.

Thank you for helping Stanley 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!
