Loving Paws
Fundraising in August

Loving Paws Rescue is celebrating 15 years of second chances in August. They currently have a Facebook fundraiser going on. For those who are not on Facebook, donations can be made directly to their PayPal account using muffin4vols@aol.com. They invite anyone that would like to hold a fund raiser for them during August to do so – car wash, dog wash, bake sale, etc. This is a great way for kids to get community hours for extracurricular clubs they might be in. From 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Aug. 29, Loving Paws will be at Tractor Supply in Henderson, grilling burgers and hot dogs. They will have their famous barbeque sandwiches as well. All proceeds from food sales go directly to the dogs. They will also have complimentary cake and cupcakes for the sweet tooth! Last but not least, they will debut their limited edition t-shirts that will be a hit for sure!
