If you don't have anything going on this Saturday, consider joining us at Stapleton Dog Park from 9:00am - 12:00pm for this fun event and puppy play date!
Paws & Give is an initiative of T relatively new to the Denver with their first event taking place this past May (2011)! Paws & Give is starting small, with gatherings at dog parks to bring people and their dogs together to support small non-profits with unmet, non-monetary needs.
At their first event in May, in two hours they were able to fill an RV with donations of gently used pet toys, paper towels for clean up, pet food, and peanut butter to "help the medicine go down" for the shelter animals of MaxFund!
Every month they will partner with a new nonprofit! This month's non-profits are P.A.W.S. and Colorado Coalition for the Homeless. See event details below about what donations to bring.
