Hill County Paw Pals, Hill County, Texas
  

Thanks to All of Our Volunteers and Supporters

As we look forward to the beginning of the holiday season and reflect on things for which we give thanks, everyone involved with Hill County Paw Pals would like to thank each of our supporters and volunteers for embracing our organization’s goals in bringing correction to the horrific state of pet overpopulation in our county and communities.

Each of your contributions, whether in your valued volunteered time or dollars, is highly appreciated and will contribute toward our county’s much needed animal shelter—serving as a harbor for unwanted companion animals while providing a nucleus for proactive animal control.  We also thank all the citizens in Hill County who have enthusiastically supported us in so many ways.  We know you have choices when making donations to non-profit organizations and it means so much that you put your trust in Hill County Paw Pals to bring change to our community.  The overwhelming support of this community was visualized in the generous support of our citizens at our recent annual garage sale.  We will not disappoint you.  Each of you is to be commended for your civic duty and concern for all creatures in our county.  We and our community salute your actions, many unrecognized, that have already resulted in the saving of hundreds and the prevention of thousands of unwanted companion animals.  We say thank you to all who have fostered unwanted animals in their homes, to those who have transported animals many miles on their way to a loving forever home, those who have spent hours on the phone searching for rescue groups to take an adoptable dog, those who labor monthly at the low cost spay/neuter clinic, those who visit the impoundment facility and witness the compelling sadness and fear in the eyes of dogs living there, and the list goes on for all who work behind the scenes to fulfill the mission of Paw Pals.  The compassion and kindness demonstrated by members of this community is beyond description.  While a few irresponsible people are the reason for pet overpopulation, the good in this community makes the fight to overcome pet overpopulation attainable.  Your volunteerism and support can be further defined with these quotes: “No person was ever honored for what he received.  Honor is given by what he gave.”—Calvin Coolidge.  You make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give.”—Winston Churchill.  Again, our community remains thankful for your volunteerism and support and we wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season.  For more information about Paw Pals, please call (254) 580-0679; visit our weblog www.helphillcountyanimals.com; or email hcpawpals@yahoo.com.
