Tickets are $20 and available at all Loyal Biscuit stores, Harbor Audio Video II and Phi Home Designs, or online at pawsadoption.org. Morecraft is renowned for his life-altering and transformational presentations on safety and the importance of taking responsibility for one’s safety and one’s life. All proceeds goes to P.A.W.S.

Get your walkin’ shoes ready for our P.A.W.S. on Parade, scheduled for Sunday, June 23, with registration starting at noon and the walk starting at 12:30 p.m. Form a pack and you could win a prize for the best pack name or the pack that raises the most money. Think your dog has the shortest tail? If so, then you could win a prize. Don’t have a dog to walk? Just give us a call and you can walk one of the dogs here at the shelter waiting for their fur-ever home. There will be free refreshments along with other items that you can purchase. Mark your calendar for a fun afternoon and help your local P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center take care of the homeless pets. P.A.W.S. has town contracts with: Camden, Rockport, Lincolnville, Islesboro, Searsmont, Liberty, Belfast and Northport.

Speaking of dogs, meet Charlie, a very loving 2-year-old Dalmatian mix who is looking for a home. She really loves people, going on walks and just hanging out with you. She is very passionate about birds, large and small, so a home without chickens or birds as your family pet would be good for her.

We can always use the following items: paper towels, non-clumping cat litter, canned cat food, dog toys and cat toys. Donations can be left in the foyer anytime. Thank you so much.

In the meantime, please stop in at our place at 146 Camden St. in Rockport and spend some time with all our glorious guys and gals. Even if you’re not quite ready for a fur person of your own, our fur people love visitors to take them for walks or just hang around. And thank you, as always, for your caring and your support.
