P.A.W.S. of Curry County
Each day thousands of puppies and kittens are born.
As long as these birth rates continue, there will never be enough homes for all these animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against the elements, animals and cruel humans. By spaying or neutering you can help stop the suffering.
There is a crisis in this country of overpopulation of cats and dogs. There is a crisis in our own Curry County.
We keep hearing about it, but what are we DOING about it? While the South Coast Humane Society (SCHS) has a Community Outreach Program and offers spay/neuter assistance, it isn’t always enough.
So a small group of volunteers has come together to try and help. We have formed: “P.A.W.S. OF CURRY COUNTY,” Protecting Animal Welfare Spay-neuter.
P.A.W.S. OF CURRY COUNTY (P.A.W.S.-CC) has a simple plan to help reduce the overpopulation of cats in our community by offering financial assistance to animal lovers. There is a greater overpopulation of kittens and cats in our area, so at this time P.A.W.S.-CC will focus its efforts on our feline population. If we are successful in our efforts we would like to expand our help to puppies and dogs.
The last thing any one wants to hear about in this economy is another plea for a donation. Many readers will say we should be helping the “people” of Curry County and not the animals. But P.A.W.S.-CC is help for animals and people. By spaying and neutering, money can be saved on animal control. It also reduces the risk of someone being injured by trying to rescue a frightened, unwanted cat or kitten. But it can also help a friend or neighbor keep the pet they love.
P.A.W.S.-CC is a group of volunteers only. No salaries are paid, no utilities, no cleaning supplies, no office supplies, etc., to take away from our one goal. Every penny of your donation goes directly for spaying or neutering.
Here is how the plan will work.
When the need arises, when a cat or kitten is in need of spaying or neutering and the owner cannot afford to pay the full amount, and SCHS is unable to help, then Town & Country Animal Clinic, which has graciously agreed to join us in this project, will contact P.A.W.S.-CC. A check will then be written for half of the cost of the surgery and for pain medication to alleviate any unnecessary suffering.
Donations IN - Payments OUT, and you’ve saved countless lives.
Too simple ? Yes, there is a catch. We are not a nonprofit organization, so your donation will not be tax deductible. But we do not make a profit. We are starting small and therefore have decided not to become a nonprofit organization because of the expenses involved in doing so.
We have a P.O. Box and have opened an account at Umpqua Bank in Harbor for your donations. Records will of course be kept of all donations and checks written.
If you can find it in your heart to help us help others, a donation can be sent to:
P.A.W.S. OF CURRY COUNTY
P. O. BOX 3097
HARBOR, OR 97415
You will not only be helping the cats and kittens of Curry County, but also yourself, and your community.
