"We are very excited about this year's event, as we will have an even larger venue than in past years,” said Lauree Nunez, SpayMart co-coordinator. “Our last two Paws Cause benefits have been big successes drawing crowds of supporters, and raising both funds and awareness."
"As a lifelong cat-lover, we are dedicated to defending the defenseless,” Nunez said. “Kitten populations continue to grow in our region, and our volunteers work diligently to find as many forever homes for the homeless as possible. Paws Cause is always a fun event, and it's great to have so many animal lovers show their support for our work. Every penny raised goes to the hundreds of successful adoptions we coordinate each year."
