PAW Dog of the Month: Neil


Look at this cutie!  We do not know why he hasn't been snapped up yet!! Neil is a 3-year-old, 55 lb., Labrador Retriever mix. He is adorably cute. Neil is a happy boy who is food motivated. Volunteers report he does well on car rides and is good on walks.

Thank you for helping Neil find his forever home!

Submit Application for Neil!

PAW Cat of the Month: Jackson


Jackson is a 10 year old grey and white male cat. He is the best companion - he's affectionate, loving, laid back, and a happy boy. He would make a great addition to any family!

He is great while being held and is a gentle soul.

Jackson is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FeLV, but has tested positive for FIV.

Jackson's FIV+ status does not mean his lifespan will be impacted - lots of FIV+ cats live long healthy lives. FIV is not transmittable to humans or dogs and is only transmittable to other cats through deep penetrating bites. While Jackson doesn't have an aggressive bone in his body and gets along fabulously with other cats, to be extra safe, he should probably be an only cat. For more information about FIV, please check out this informative article:

If you would like to meet Jackson 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 Jackson find his 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!
