A Helping Paw Humane Society is 'moving foraward' in order to bet serve pets in need. We hope you will join us.
   Since 1998, AHP has been providng no-kill options through our many life-saving services & programs and working with special needs pets.  With the rising number of loving pets left homeless or lacking medical care,  we will be relocating our facility and expanding our service area in order to reach those most in need.
   The next few months will be challening for us, not only are we in the midst of our annual campaign that provides funding in order for us to continue all of our animal-welfare programs, at the same time we will be packing and moving to transition into our new building. We know this will be a challenge for us as there is so much work to be done, thankfully we have a very dedicated team of volunteers. Many who have offered to work long hours, even through the holidays,  in order to complete our transition. When we get exhausted and overwhlemed, it is your support that will help us keep going. Just knowing you are as passionate about saving lives as we are makes all the difference.   
   A portion of our campaign will make funds avaiable to off-set the cost of the move and renovations, allowing us to complete evertyhing in a timely fashion and avoid interuptions in our services that we provide to the most loving and affectionate pets.
     We hope you will help us in making this a 'smooth move' by generously giving to our combined "Moving Forward for Pets" & annual campaign. 
   As a 501 (c) (3) registerd organzation, your generous gift is tax deductible. Please support those who can't speak for themselves, by giving the pets the GIFT of LIFE this holiday season. 
   With time being short, the pets URGENTLY need your help to reach their GOAL!  
   Thank you for sharing a piece of your heart with  pets in need!

Dear friends,
Over the last 15 years A Helping Paw has faced many struggles to ensure we will always be here to help the pets. Our dedicated people have a sheer passion for all animals, especially those less often able to find help.
We are now in our final weeks at our current location. While our new re-sale shop is near completion thanks to so very many volunteers who have given their time. We had hoped to have a new building to move to immediately, and while we have several possibilities, sadly we've fallen short on funding preventing us from securing one of these wonderful opportunities.

Traditionally we could hold a major fundraiser to aid us, but the move alone has taken all of our time. As you know any move is very exhausting and time consuming add to that setting up an entire new shop. We are extremely proud of all the efforts supplied by our volunteers and volunteer directors that have made this such a focus of their lives all to benefit the pets.

And to be expected we've lost near $4,000 in sales thru our shop because of the move. This was an expected part of the transition, but just another challenge we must face.

We'd like to thank all of you who have already shown your kind and generous support. We hope more will join us and show their support of all the great work A Helping Paw has done over the last 15 yrs and help us raise the $6,000 needed to secure a local facility to move to before the end of Feb.

While all of our programs will continue uninterrupted one way or another, having a home-base will make it possible to provide even more services and help those pets in most urgent need.

We thank you all for your kindness and compassion towards our pet friends. Every pet we help, changes a LIFE forever. It's the most precious gift we can give. And in return we are given the knowledge that their is new hope and brightness in their eyes, deeper purrs and happier waggin tails.

Our volunteer elves have been so awesome, they just don't quit! Many are still sharing their time, working extra hours to ensure all our programs run smoothly, even through the holidays! Thanks to them many more pets are getting the help they need this holiday season. We are happy to say two senior kitties who recently lost their home, are now resting peacefully at AHP and will be safe and secure for the holiday! Thank you everyone for showing your support and letting our volunteers know you appreciate every thing they do. And our pets thank you for making their holidays happy and bright with new hope!

Our volunteers worked long hours yesterday and we can't thank them enough! One even had a horrible headache, but she didn't bail - she just kept on going! Talk about dedication. The pets surely are lucky to have so many caring people help out!
And all our wonderful donors are helping them reach their goal. Still a ways to go, but with your kindness we can help get them there!

A good friend of mine died a few years ago, and in lieu of flowers, she asked for donations go to this charity in her name. In honor of Irma Longenecker, I hope it helps a bit.

Such a wonderful service you provide for those who can't do for themselves. I hope this helps with the transition.
