Island Paws had a great party/fundraiser at the Treasure Trove!
Island Paws Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to promote the welfare of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. Their Mission is to save the lives of stray dogs and cats through spay, neuter, adoption and educational programs. Island Paws does a lot of work in Bimini, the closest island to us in the Bahamas. Why help the dogs in Bimini? Bimini has become a second home to many South Florida residents. Many of which have rescued a stray dog aka “Potcake” or two from the streets which are known as the “King’s Highway” of Bimini. We have chosen to help dogs in Bimini because of the island’s overwhelming need for shelters and compassion. In the States, we have many shelters, humane societies, and rescue groups. In Bimini (which has only 1600 residents) we have a few volunteers that take in some of the stray dogs that are in need of special attention. Unsterilized dogs roam the streets, reproducing at alarming rates. Thousands of dogs die inhumanely, suffering from illnesses and starvation. They are NOT given the right to die humanely, pain free, or peacefully. Most die in extreme discomfort, never knowing love or affection. For these reasons, we fight to raise awareness to the sufferings occurring in our own backyard. We strive for a better future for all animals! Their next event is a golf tournament in Pompano! http://islandpawsrescue.org/Events.html Here are some photos from their latest fundraiser at the Treasure Trove in Fort Lauderdale Beach:
