We will be hosting a once a month class that support and bring awareness to a new cause. These suggested donation classes are a great way for us a practitioners to give back and support amazing non profit organizations by doing what we love practicing yoga! Join us as a community to raise awareness and help make a change.
This month Elizabeth Crisci will be hosting a class that will benefit PAWS. PAWS is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in continuous operation since 1962 by Westport, Connecticut resident Betty Long to rescue homeless dogs and place them in permanent homes. In the early 1980s, our rescue efforts were expanded to include cats. PAWS rescues & rehomes approximately 115 dogs and 435 cats annually. Many of the dogs faced euthanasia at local pounds and most of the cats that we help are strays and abandoned cats that roam our streets. A portion of the pets that come to PAWS have been relinquished by their owners who are no longer able to care for them.
PAWS has a handful of paid staff and a team of dedicated volunteers that help with everything to fundraising, to kennel work, to walking dogs and much, much more. Every person at PAWS is a valued & needed member of our team - without them we could not accomplish the miracle that happens every day!
We constantly seek to increase the number of lives we can save by finding adoptive homes for the animals in our care, working closely with other animal groups, and raising funds to secure the supplies and facilities necessary for our operation.
Elizabeth has been volunteering at PAWS for almost one year, working with the dogs in their care. She visits as often as she can, usually a few times a week, and each time she is blown away by the work that PAWS is doing to save wonderful animals who have faced difficult pasts. It is a huge privilege to raise money for this amazing organization and the animals that rely on them.
