We're Making Miracles Happen Every Day!
I can’t believe that in ONE MONTH, we’ll be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Paws in the Park!
I remember the very first one like it was yesterday out at Chestnut Ridge Park – I remember being SO THRILLED that people actually showed up with their dogs to participate! And they stayed with us, happily walking through the park…year after year…muddy rain or shine…more and more people showed up every year.
That was 1993. Jump ahead to 2018.
Twenty-five years later the event, now held at Beaver Island, is larger than we ever could have imagined.
We’re in a beautiful, new building in West Seneca with capabilities beyond what we ever could have imagined.
Our staff and volunteer team have nearly quadrupled, to numbers beyond what we could have imagined.
But the best part? The number of animals we’re able to help…the number of treatments we’re able to provide…the number of families we’re making complete…the miracles happening here day after day and hour after hour...we’re doing what we’ve always wanted to do, though we never thought it would be possible.
For 28 years, I've been blessed to watch lives changed because of the difference made by this organization. And I don't just mean the lives of animals. I mean the lives of people too.
Families are made whole.
Loneliness is gone.
Hurting is healed.
Animals' lives are rescued...and they return the favor by making our lives wonderful.
I've seen 28 years' worth of miracles. Thousands upon thousands upon thousands of hugs and kisses and tears and smiles, and I don't take a single one for granted.
These little miracles happen several times a day because of the people who donate to ensure they keep happening.
Please donate to my Paws in the Park walk. Do it in memory of one or two or a hundred animals you've loved in your life...and in honor of the animals you have yet to find!
