News from UPAWS
For 40 years, we have worked to provide a safe haven for the homeless animals in Marquette County and beyond. This new facility will be a beacon of hope for animals and animal lovers and significantly increase our community outreach programming.
UPAWS is a part of the movement in redefining the shelter as a beacon of hope, a place where the environment contributes to successful adoption rates AND a place that engages the animal-loving community for a PAWSitive impact.
Imagine more opportunities for volunteers of all ages; humane education and animal empathy education; behavioral and safety training; the U.P.’s ONLY shelter run facility for the rescue and re-home of large and farm animals; kids camps, pet parties, and read to your shelter pet programs; the community’s only year-round, off-leash, fenced-in dog park. Imagine the PAWSibilities.
UPAWS has raised approximately $2.47 million as part of our $3.7 million campaign. Call 906-475-6665 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn the new programs we will be able to offer.
To give, community members are encouraged to go to upaws.org, stop by the shelter, or send check or pledge to PO Box 968, Marquette, MI 49855 and mark it for the new shelter.
