PAWSOME is an adjective given to any young member of our community who does something awesome for PAWS, and that definitely describes 11-year-old Beth S. from Huntington County.
Beth created and sold “backpack buddies” to fellow students in her school. She created snake, lizard and dragon fly designs and sold them for $1, $1.25 and $1.50 respectively.
The “backpack buddies” were such a hit that Beth had to enlist the help of her teacher and several classmates to complete the roughly 300 orders.
After all the orders were complete and some additional donations accepted, Beth came to PAWS recently with a check for $425!
That means that Beth has already paid the adoption fee for these four wonderful animals as a gift to their future forever families.
Beth and her parents are themselves forever families to a PAWS’ alum—Maggie, who was adopted in December as Beth’s Christmas present.
PAWS cannot thank you enough Beth—you are truly a PAWSOME young lady that we are happy and extremely fortunate to have in our community!
