On March 17th, we held our 3rd annual Paws for Celebration – and if you had the opportunity to be there, you know what a great time it was and also a celebration of community spirit.  Nearly 300 people joined in the fun and local businesses like Brockton Animal Hospital, The Shaw’s Center, The Wine Guys, Notch Brewing, Barefoot Wines and Sure Shots gave their sponsorship. Many other businesses and friends donated goods to be auctioned, and attendees generously helped us raise over $25,000 that will not only allow the APCSM to help animals find homes, but continue programs that help people keep their pets as well.  Also, during a special 10 minute collection, attendees donated to the APCSM’s Life is Precious Fund to help cover the medical costs incurred for the 4 cats rescued from the February house fire on Brockton’s East Side – this special collection, with matching funds from two anonymous supporters, raised more than $3500.

On behalf of the entire APCSM staff, volunteers and the many homeless pets in our care – a big thank you to the dozens of business that supported us, to our sponsors and especially those that attended for making this year’s Paws for Celebration such a success! You all showed us that a community coming together is the most important bottom line. We look forward to doing it again in 2013 and continuing to serve the community for many years to come.
