AC PAW building fund

$355 of $300k goal

Gail Baglaj Maison  ACME, MI
Antrim County Pet and Animal Watch (AC PAW), a 501c3 charitable organization,  is looking for shelter space and starting a building fund.

 AC PAW has expanded its programs over the past 22 years while managing to remain an all-volunteer organization with a small home base in Mancelona. We have rescued and placed over 10,500 companion animals, all vaccinated and spayed or neutered. We've continued to run a cost effective donation-based and all-volunteer foster care system with more than 96% of our funds being spent directly on our animals.

 With our continued growth, the AC PAW volunteers find we now need a building in Traverse City Michigan to call home. We are putting out a call for help. We are looking for a building to buy or lease or for a parcel of property we could build on. We are also starting a building fund for tax-deductible donations. All funds received will be put toward a building and startup costs. Any funds received in excess of this would be used directly for the animals. No salaries are received by any AC PAW volunteer.

 An existing building would not need to be fancy. It could be an old warehouse with tile or cement floors. It will need to have running water, heat, a bathroom, space for a laundry facility and for an office. While continuing to use our foster care system, we would use this building to intake new cats for their 10-day quarantine period, and as emergency intake for both cats and dogs.

 A building would allow us to expand our spay/neuter program and provide space to house feral cats overnight after surgery before they are relocated or returned. Our hope is to have a building that includes space for a veterinarian to treat our pets and eventually for spays and neuters to be done in-house. The more animals we alter, the fewer we will have to rescue.

 The AC PAW volunteers gratefully thank the community for your continued support.
