Help PAWS save lives during Centre Gives
9 a.m. Tuesday, May 12 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, May 13


PAWS is excited to participate in Centre Gives again this year! Centre Gives is Centre Foundation's 36-hour online giving event supporting over 150 local nonprofits. Last year our supporters helped us raise over $60,000 during Centre Gives to help save the lives of cats and dogs in our community.

A new start time this year! This year's event begins at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 12 and ends at 9 p.m. Wednesday, May 13. When you donate to PAWS through Centre Gives, your money goes further. The $100,000 Centre Gives stretch pool has been doubled to $200,000, thanks to a generous gift from the Hamer Foundation! Learn more about the event at CentreGives.org.

Keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts during Centre Gives. We will be sharing the true stories of the cats and dogs you are helping with your donations via live streams, videos, photos, and more.

We also have some fun events planned during Centre Gives. Check them out:
