It's Giving Tuesday Now! - Prairie Paws


May 5, 2020 News Comments are off
#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that is taking place today – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020, #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
We are using this day to express our gratitude for our amazing supporters. You have helped us raise almost $3,000 on our $5 Fridays! If everything aligns correctly we are hoping with your help, with loan funds, with grant funds, with vet partner services being resumed, paws, fingers, and toes are crossed the shelter can open back up and begin services again in mid to late May.
If you’d like to donate a monetary amount this Giving Tuesday, please use the fee-free link
If you’d like to donate items off of our wish list, you can leave these items on the back porch of the shelter. We just ask that you email us at and we can coordinate with a staff member to bring them inside. Wish List Link
If you’d link to sign up to be a volunteer, please go to We couldn’t do what we do without our amazing volunteers. Even in times of economic crisis, we each have a deep reserve of generosity, which we can deploy in myriad ways to make a difference–your time, your kindness, your skills, your voice are all things you can give in lieu of monetary donations.
Our new normal will most likely mean fewer animals in the shelter and more animals in foster homes. If you’d like to sign up to be a foster for a future PPAS homeless dog or a cat please use the following links:
Submit your Cat foster application online:

If you’d like to post a picture of your PPAS Pet(s) and let us know how special they are to you please feel free to do so on our Facebook page or send us an email at We’d love to share them throughout the day. That is always the best gift we can ever hope for. Thank you for your support and for being incredibly amazing on so many levels.
Virtual hugs, purrs, and tail wags from all of us!
