No bones about it, PAWS proves to be successful yet another year

Friends of the Colleton County Animal Shelter (FoCCAS) faced many challenges this year when it came to their annual Paws event. For the first time, it was held off of a Plantation and instead at one of Colleton County’s newest venues, The South Forty. The site, located in Round O, was beautifully decorated by the ever so talented Sparkles. Event-goers have come to expect to be wowed when they arrive and this year was no exception. Luckily, after stressing all week about the weather, Saturday proved to be the perfect weather as the rain stayed away and allowed all to enjoy a wonderful evening.
Folks were able to enjoy the feast prepared by Jimmy Fitts catering while listening to the Going to the Dogs Band. Raffles, silent auction and the live auctions all worked to earn the local nonprofit nearly $10,000 for the animals of Colleton County. There were a lot so winners throughout the night, including James Cares, who won the 10-ounce silver bar and Johnny Thomas, who won the Garth Brooks concert tickets, but we all know the real winners are the animals of Colleton County.
FoCCAS wants to remind the public why it is so important to support their organization. They play a vital role when it comes to the animals of Colleton County. This money will help prepare shelter pets for adoption/rescue, fund community spay/neuter initiatives, and support the Colleton Animal Commitment Education (CACE) program. It acts as a supplemental income to the Animal Shelter of Colleton County and supports all of the efforts to help the animals that find their way to the shelter live their best lives. Once an animal finds its way to the shelter, several things happen to help that animal either find their way home or to a new home. These efforts are not inexpensive and are made possible with hours of volunteer work and supplemental income from FoCCAS.
FoCCAS, as an organization, wants to give a huge THANK YOU to all the hosts, sponsors, donors, volunteers, and guests for supporting their work. “I want to thank all the sponsors and donors. We had over 50 people and businesses contribute to the event this year and 150 attend the event. It warms my heart to know how many people care about the animals of Colleton County,” said Vice President of FoCCAS, Sarah Miller.
