September PAW This Month!

PAW Dog of the Month: Delano


Delano is a 1 year old, 53 lb., borzoi mix.  Delano (as in F. Delano Roosevelt) is an exceptional dog.  Start with handsome, wow, what a good looking guy.  He is sleek and black, he needs to put on a few pounds as his ribs show just a bit too much. His legs are long, they go from all of the way down there to all of the way up here. There may be greyhound in that mix with his long legs and pointy face. That's just his looks, his personality is even better.  Delano loves everyone, regardless of how many legs they have.  His energy level is pretty high but he is a good walker, kind of all over the place but no hard pulling.  He will do better in a home that will give him plenty of exercise.  He rides well in the car.  Delano was an owner give up, so he has lived in a house - no guarantees on house trained, but there is a chance.   

If you are interested in adopting Delano, please click below to submit an application. Thank you for helping Delano 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. The MCC runs from October 9 - December 18, 2018. 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 Martha at You do not need to be a federal employee or retiree to help at the fairs. We really appreciate your help! 

Shop with Amazon Smile!

When shopping online with Amazon, make sure you shop through Amazon Smile. It is exactly the same, except a portion of your purchase will benefit PAW. In the 1st Quarter of this year, Amazon Smile users contributed $362.44 by just simply shopping. So please remember to shop with Amazon Smile and make sure PAW is your chosen non-profit. Thank you for all of your support!
