“Please join us as we celebrate the beginning of a new year with new hopes for the future as PAW continues to focus on helping dogs and cats through humane education, rescue and the need for spay and neuter to prevent unwanted animal overpopulation,” said Ellen LaTorre, Acting President, Project Animal Worldwide. “We were very proud to be able to carry out our mission this year in our own backyard, helping the feral kittens in Sea Bright, NJ when Superstorm Sandy hit our shores. We hope that people will put aside the daily stress and treat themselves to the sweeter things in life for an evening, all in the name of helping animals.”
About Project Animal Worldwide
Project Animal Worldwide (PAW) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to develop spay/neuter programs, assist in animal rescue, and implement humane education in areas of the world where the homeless dog and cat population is unmanageable. For every 100 dogs brought to shelters from the streets and beaches of Puerto Rico, only three dogs will live.
This alarming statistic propelled PAW to collaborate with the government, businesses and nonprofit organizations of all sizes to address the devastating dog and cat overpopulation on the island. Since 2009, PAW has also been involved in the rescue and transport of over 300 satos (slang for street dogs) to New Jersey and over 325 spay and neuter surgeries in Puerto Rico.
