How Much Is That Doggy In The Window?
Christmas Puppies? Are you purchasing a puppy this year? Ruth Ginzberg says it all so eloquently - all the reasons NOT to purchase or give a dog or cat for Xmas in her article entitled: NO CHRISTMAS PUPPIES, PLEASE!

My Family was introduced to SMALL PAWS RESCUE by Debra Graham an attorney who works with my Dad. It was over 6 years ago - I don't know how many dogs we have transported, vetted, played some small part in their recovery - even if it was just being part of a prayer chain. I know Debra Graham has personally been responsible for hundreds , she is on the board of directors at the Kanawha Animal Shelter and donates all her free time to animal rights issues. At this time of year the Animal Shelters, and the Rescue Groups such as SMALL PAWS need donations. If you are looking for a charity or just have a few extra dollars consider helping those in need. All donations to SMALL PAWS are used for the direct support and care of the animals. The staff is mostly made up of volunteers like my folks and Debra Graham. People who care deeply about Animals. If YOU can Help, please do so! Its TAX DEDUCTIBLE. Contact your local Animal Shelter or click on the Link to Small Paws.
