CALENDAR YEAR 2008 MAJOR HIGHLIGHTS

Paws and Claws continues to work diligently to end the cycle of cruelty caused by unchecked pet reproduction. PACS provided thousands of FREE spay/neuter surgeries for homeless pets during calendar year 2008. PACS also provided for vaccinations, testings, internal and external parasite treatments. PACS spay/neuter programs and services certainly epitomize our philosophy of Prevention Not Destruction. In addition to providing sheltering assistance for hundreds of homeless companion animals, Paws and Claws Society funded medical treatment for sick or injured cats and dogs, which included many life-saving surgeries. Each month, PACS makes available the award-winning newspaper, KIND NEWS, to more than three thousand children enrolled in the second, third and fourth grades. This publication helps teach children respect for animals and the environment.
