October PAW This Month!

PAW Dog of the Month: Ross


Ross is a 4 year old, 58lb, plott hound mix. He is outgoing and enjoys human companionship. He is calm on leash and even voluntarily sits and will lean in to your legs for petting. He's a very sweet pup, however gets anxious around loud noises, so would do better in a quiet home. He does not do well with cats so needs a home without a cat, but might do well with another dog. Ross is housetrained, but might need a refresher course in a new setting.

Thank you for helping Ross find his forever home!

PAW Cat of the Month: Juno


Juno is a lovely, approximately 1 year old, Tabby with striking golden-amber eyes. Juno is ready to find a comfortable, loving, forever home after having had a litter of kittens as a stray. Juno has been a full-time indoor cat for many months now while she raised her kittens. Juno has impeccable manors and has always been warm, friendly, and affectionate with her entire foster family. Sweet Juno may be slightly timid when first meeting new people but in no time at all, she will be a wonderful, laid back companion. Juno is fond of napping in the warmth of a sunny window, being brushed and cuddling up next to the members of her foster family for head rubs and attention.

It is unknown whether Juno gets along with other cats or with dogs but she adores her slightly older, foster human brother and sisters, as well as both her foster Mom and Dad.

Juno will be spayed before her adoption, is up to date on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV/FELV.

If you would like to learn more about Juno, please contact Annaliesa at CatManager@paw-rescue.org.

Thank you for helping Juno find her 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:  https://mcc.maryland.gov/. 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 psanjeeta@gmail.com. You do not need to be a federal employee or retiree to help at the fairs. We really appreciate your help!

5 Things You Might Be Doing That Hurts Your Dog’s Feelings

From our friends at iHeartDogs...

A Harvard psychologist recently declared that when dogs dream they are likely reliving their experiences with their humans. Those yips and kicks we see are their reactions to either pleasing us or annoying us in dreamland.

For better or worse, our dogs’ entire lives revolve around us. If they do not get enough of our time or that time is marred by unwarranted punishments, it can leave lasting emotional scars.
