September PAW This Month!

PAW Dog of the Month: Geneva


Geneva is a 5 year old, 65 lb., Treeing Walker Coonhound. She is a very sweet girl who can be a little timid at first. She does not know any commands and needs to gain confidence. She loves just being next to you. She is ok with other dogs but doesn't like other dogs jumping on her or rough play. Geneva is heartworm positive, but we have started the treatment process. She will be as good as new in no time!  Please note that should Geneva get adopted before her treatment is complete, PAW will continue to pay for treatment until Geneva is confirmed heartworm negative.

Thank you for helping Geneva find her forever home!

PAW Cats of the Month: Daisy and Bonnie


Daisy is a 1 year old all grey female who LOVES other cats, especially kittens. She has been mothering her own kitten, Bonnie, plus several others, and does a great job of keeping them clean, playing with them and snuggling with them. We'd love to see Daisy adopted with her kitten, Bonnie.

Daisy LOVES other cats and enjoys their company very much. She enjoys being pet, and enjoys lap pets. She is most often found nearby her foster mom on the couch. Daisy is also great with dogs! Daisy is a laid back, quiet, low maintenance type of girl, who is just happy to be around friends.

Bonnie is a blue gray kitten born in late June 2021. She is an adorable kitten with soft fur and a cute purr! Bonnie likes to play, be around her human friends, and watch the window for squirrels going by. She is very attached to her mother, Daisy. 

Bonnie is currently up to date with the vaccinations needed for her age and will be spayed before being placed in her forever home. PAW will cover the remaining vaccinations for this year if the adopter uses one of PAW's partnered vets.

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

If you would like to meet Daisy and Bonnie via Facetime or Zoom, as well as ask questions about them, please complete the application here: (or click the button below) and we will be in touch.

If you have any other questions, please contact Heather at

Thank you for helping Daisy and Bonnie find their 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!
