Admirable Service

While it's not a feature article it is still a plug for service dogs of all kinds. Midwest Living magazine was running an article on service dogs and needed some photography to enhance the story. The magazine reached out to one of this countries only service dog photographers, Steve Hirsch, in order to secure an image to run in the magazine. Steve have donated a great deal of photography time to Paws & Effect and we are so proud that his shot of Tag (short name for Partager - French word that means 'To share') made the cut.

Please take the time to take a look at Steve's photography. Quite amazing. Thanks Steve! and Thanks to Tag for taking time out of his service dog work to pose for the camera.

A service dog named Tag.

A day at the track.

Paws & Effect was invited to the Newton Speedway to raise money through the sales of their 50/50 raffle at their NASCAR Truck series race on Saturday. Our volunteers spanned from Wells Fargo, The Integer Group, Legion Riders, and a handful of dedicated Paws & Effect Puppy Raisers.

They worked the sale to the tune of $16,000. Nothing like a good the raffle winner taking home $8,000 and Paws & Effect taking home over $4,000.

Now our puppies can get their spay and neuters done soon.

Thank you Newton Speedway for inviting us back to the track and to our volunteers! We hugely appreciate your effort.
