PAAWS Appeal for Donations to save Animal Sanctuary

Dear friends of PAAWS,                                                                                        September 2011

We hope you can take the time to read this mail and hopefully reply by return to the big question we ask below. PAAWS future depends on it.
Your answers will be presented at our emergency meeting on Sunday October 2nd at the Hideout at 3:30 p.m.

The big question is :
Do you feel there is continued need for a no kill shelter (PAAWS) in Antigua?

PAAWS are heading for a crisis. Our appeals for help in October last year when our numbers rose to 60, and again in February this year were answered by a few wonderful caring individuals, but sadly not nearly enough to give PAAWS a future. The past has shown that the shelter cannot cope without one paid helper, and even though we have just stopped taking in animals for now, we cannot see our way clear of homing the 32 we have at present, any time soon. This is the first year in PAAWS 16 years of life that we are just not homing enough of our rescues, and donations and memberships are way down. We have helped close to 1000 animals during our 7 years at the Parham shelter, it would be heartbreaking if we could not continue. We have funds for only eight more weeks

PAAWS faces an avalanche of calls about abandoned, abused and neglected animals; our dwindling resources restrict our ability to respond.

Some members of the PAAWS management board are doing all they can to volunteer their own time and resources. Sadly this is not enough. After 16 years of continued efforts and development we pray that we can keep our heads above water in this turbulent sea of decline.

What will YOUR decision be: We CONTINUE or We CLOSE.

PAAWS REALLY WANTS TO CONTINUE CARING FOR THESE POOR CREATURES, BUT CAN ONLY DO THIS WITH THE REGULAR HELP OF A CARING COMMUNITY.
