Featuring a treasure trove of hits from these music legends, including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Walk The Line,” “Hound Dog,” “Who Do You Love?,” “Great Balls of Fire,” and many more, Million Dollar Quartet not only plays the music that made the Golden Age of Rock and Roll, it tells the stories of the men who created it.”

This past week, we got a call from a senior who has cancer that has difficulty walking her St. Bernard/hound mix as well as grooming him. Thankfully, we have our partner, Rachel, owner of Dog Grooming By Rachel, who generously provides us grooming services for our dogs in the program. She has been working with us for past 2 years or so. Thank you, Rachel, for all you do! Check out her work on her Facebook page!

PAWS has many programs which are helpful in achieving our goals. PAWS operates Humane Education Program to help children to understand the importance of taking responsibility for their pets, including spaying/neutering. PAWS operates a humane education program that is presented to school aged students each year. The program is called “PAWS To Learn” and is offered free to schools, libraries, scouts and other civic groups. The New York State mandated curriculum is presented at an age appropriate level to various grades. PAWS has a low-cost spay/neuter program which enables many families to have their pets altered who would otherwise be unable to do so for financial reasons. This service is also provided for stray animals. Consequently, this reduces the number of unwanted animals that enter our already over burdened and over-populated shelters. Thousands of animals are spayed/neutered each year through our program which greatly reduces the number of animals being born and thus, the number being destroyed. We also have a free spay/neuter program for felines. Other programs also include: Seniors for Seniors and PAWS pet food distribution program. Please see our Programs page for a complete listing of all of our Programs.
We welcome any and all donations. You can make your check payable to PAWS and send to P.O. Box 861, Hicksville, New York 11802-0861. Or go to our Donations page link above.
Please remember that adopting a pet from the shelter means that you have saved a life.
