We are preparing for our 5th Annual Raise the Woof Gala dinner and silent auction on Friday, October 4, 2019.
Giant Paw Prints is an all-volunteer powered 501c3 non-profit charitable organization founded in 2012. Its goal is the rescue and reformation of shelter and otherwise undesired dogs. Although we specialize in larger breed dogs, we are an all-breed rescue with BIG hearts.
This event is being held at Blue Chip Casino’s banquet room and features a buffet-style dinner, beverages, entertainment by Erik Donner, 50/50 raffle, and silent auction. Our guests represent professional, educational, and grassroots organizations. This event raises an average of $35,000 annually to support our rescue efforts.
This funds from this gala allows us to rehabilitate and find fur-ever homes for every dog. Our small facility houses six kennels. Once the dog is vetted, chipped, and bathed, we transition the dogs to foster homes.
Last year at Giant Paw Prints:
• We spayed or neutered 75% of the dogs that came into our rescue
• 15% of the dogs were heartworm positive and received treatments
• 13% of the dogs were Lymes positive and received treatments
• 12% were grossly undernourished
• 43% had significant health issues
• 87 dogs were adopted out of our rescue.
• 100% adopted to their fur-ever homes!
All of this comes at a high cost to our rescue. We receive calls daily from families who need to surrender their dogs, Animal Control and other Humane Societies can’t take on these expensive cases. That is when we come in!
Please consider attending our annual gala. It is a doggone fun event!
