Happy Monday and March 1 everyone – we hope you enjoy reading our newsletter!

March Fundraisers – With the ever constantly changing Covid rules/restrictions many small businesses (including our own) and charities need more support and awareness. If you are able to we invite you to please participate in our fundraisers.

We have a 50-50 Raffle Draw on now in support of Finding Them Homes. The jackpot currently sits at $3100! We hope to raise $5000 in total donations which means $2500 to the rescue AND $2500 to the winner! Details to participate are on our Facebook page or email us at info@theeplaceforpaws.com anytime!

We also have a Crafters Market Fundraiser on that features products from local small businesses/vendors with portions of sales being donated to FTH.
