May PAW This Month!

PAW Dog of the Month: Nico


Nico is a 3 year old, 67 lb., German Shepard/Labrador Retriever mix. He is a very sweeet boy who loves people. He also loves to cuddle, get belly rubs, children - although he would do best with kids over the age of 10.  We have discovered that he is not good with other dogs and should be an only dog.  He does not do well with cats or in an apartment. 

Now that Nico is in training to help with his reactiveness to other dogs, this would be the perfect time to get to know Nico. Maybe you could attend one of his training sessions!

Nico loves his treats and that makes him an excellent student for training.  He's a smart guy and is going to make a great companion.  If you adopt Nico now, you can help shape his training.  

Thank you for helping Nico find his forever home!

PAW Cat of the Month: Piper


Piper is a handsome solid black domestic longhaired male. He is around 2 years old. A great day for Piper would be sitting by a window in the sun and watching all the birds and squirrels go by. He's a pretty independent guy, but is having fun playing with his foster cat siblings. Piper is a sweetheart. He loves rubbing on his human friend's legs, LOVES his cat tower, and loves his meal times just as much!

Piper wil be neutered before being placed in his forever home, up to date on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV/FELV.

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

If you have any other questions, please contact Annaliesa at

Thank you for helping Piper find his forever home!

How Do My Donations Help PAW?

When you donate to PAW, do you ever wonder how your generous donations are used? One of the many ways we use funds generously donated to us is rehabilitation for our animals that are recovering from surgery or other health issues. Rehab can be incredibly expensive and we would never be able to provide it to our animals if it wasn't for generous donors like you!

Here is sweet Clyde exercising on the underwater treadmill; he can't wait to be completely healed and as good as new! In the meantime, he loves his underwater treadmill workouts!

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!

Nutrients Your Cat Needs

Nutrients are substances obtained from food and used by an animal as a source of energy and as part of the metabolic machinery necessary for maintenance and growth. Barring any special needs, illness-related deficiencies or instructions from your vet, your pets should be able to get all the nutrients they need from high-quality commercial pet foods, which are formulated with these special standards in mind. Here are the six essential classes of nutrients fundamental for healthy living.
