PAWS saves lives and prevents suffering by implementing the no-kill philosophy through aggressive spay/neuter programs for owned and unowned animals; by rescuing, fostering, and seeking permanent homes for endangered dogs and cats; and by raising awareness of the plight of homeless animals.
PAWS seeks a time when there are no homeless companion animals in south central Pennsylvania.
To respond to this disaster, United Way has established the United Way Hurricane Sandy Recovery Fund. Contributions to the Fund will be used by local United Ways along the Eastern Seaboard to address the near and long-term recovery needs of communities that FEMA has declared disaster areas.
The United Way system is uniquely equipped to respond to disaster because of our in-depth knowledge of local needs, ability to draw on the resources of our network of leaders in the corporate and social service sectors, and long-standing partnerships with key private, public and nonprofit stakeholders in our communities.
The V Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to saving lives by helping to find a cure for cancer. The Foundation seeks to make a difference by generating broad-based support for cancer research and by creating an urgent awareness among all Americans of the importance of the war against cancer. The Foundation performs these dual roles through advocacy, education, fundraising, and philanthropy.
Don’t Give Up. Don’t Ever Give Up.
