June PAW This Month!

PAW Dog of the Month: Marti


Marti is a 3 year old, 68 lb., Labrador Retriever mix. She is a sweet and happy-go-lucky girl who would love nothing more than to stay by her people's side and shower them with doggie kisses. She also loves to run and play and would make a wonderful companion! 

Thank you for helping Marti 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!

Callie’s Close Call with Life-threatening Lilies

From our friends at the ASPCA...

The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) receives thousands of calls each year involving cats exposed to lilies. Lilies from the Lilium and Hemerocallis genera have been linked to acute kidney injury in cats after ingestion; and even a sniff of a small amount of pollen is enough to lead to concerns, as Callie’s owners found out one Friday morning.
