CLAWS RAFFLE FUNDRAISER!
Thanks to some wonderful quilters here in the Grand Valley, CLAWS is raffling off this beautiful quilt called "Cat's Night Out". Raffle tickets are only $5/each; all proceeds go directly to benefit all the cats at CLAWS!!! Tickets are available at the shelter, or at the following locations from 11 am to 3 pm on the scheduled date:
August 7th - Church of the Nativity
September 10 - Fruita Farmers' Market
Additional locations will be posted as they are finalized. Please check our Facebook page for the most updated information and help CLAWS by purchasing raffle tickets!
Saturday Adoption Events
10 am - 5 pm
**Please note there will be no adoptions on Saturday, September 3, 2015. We will be at PETCO on Saturday, September 10, 2015, for their National Adoption Event, and will return to Petsmart on Saturday, September 17.**
Please join us and find your new best furry friend!
If you can't make it to an adoption event, a reminder that we always have available cats and kittens in permanent adoption cages at Petco, Petsmart, J&M Aquatics, and Chow Down Pet Supplies.
*Special Note: Due to the cleaning and maintenance required each day to ensure our shelter residents are well taken care of, the shelter itself is not an adoption center - which is why we host adoption events every Saturday and have adoptable cats and kittens at the retailers listed above. If you are interested in adopting from us, please attend an adoption event and visit the retailers before submitting a request to visit the shelter. Thank you!!!
CLAWS GoFundMe Page
CLAWS is in desparate need of donations to allow us to continue to provide care and shelter for the hundreds of cats and kittens that are surrendered to us each year. Our donations are down significantly from last year but the number of surrenders to the shelter is the same. Please click here to view the CLAWS' fund page. Thank you!
