Hill County Paw Pals, Hill County, Texas

Month of September Dedicated as Pet Food and Supply Donation Drive

 for Hill County Paw Pals at “Maurices” (located at Outlets at Hillsboro)


Maurices, located at Outlets at Hillsboro, has designated Hill County Paw Pals as the recipient of donations from their inaugural pet food and supplies donation drive.  The event is named “Rescues & Runaways” and will run throughout the month of September. 

Maurices is calling on local residents to participate by dropping off donations of pet food and/or supplies at the local store.  A fashion show is scheduled September 19 at maurices and Paw Pals representatives will operate an information booth to further educate the community about the mission of our organization.  Maurices was started in 1931 as a small women’s fashion shop in Duluth, Minnesota and has grown to over 700 stores in 43 states and today they specialize in fashion with a “twenty-something attitude”.  Paw Pals is greatly honored by this recognition and by the opportunity to improve awareness of ways to improve the plight of unwanted companion animals.

The remaining year is filled with exciting volunteer opportunities to support Paw Pals’ cause of correcting pet overpopulation and establishing an animal shelter.  The events include: Cotton Pickin’ Fair Pet Parade on September 26  planned by Whitney High School Paw Pals Club & Hillsboro Jr. High School Wee-Paws; Pioneer Days in Whitney on October 3 will include a Paw Pals information booth sponsored by Whitney High School Paw Pals Club; 6th Annual Paw Pals County-wide Garage Sale set for the second weekend in November with a pre-planning meeting at 7pm on September 24 at Lone Star Café in Hillsboro (contact Cherie Luttrell at 694-7652); Paw Pals Recognition Banquet at Blue Skies Café at Willie’s Place (Carl’s Corner) on October 10; Outlets at Hillsboro’s “Spooky Pooch” Costume Contest on October 31; and the monthly Paw Pals Low Cost Spay/Neuter and Vaccination Clinic offered on the first Tuesday of each month (contact Kathy Moore at 582-9374).
