FORT MADISON – Last week, Fort Madison’s no-kill animal shelter P.A.W. rescued 37 of 77 Shih Tzu puppies from a Burlington home. (Read the full story here.) Due to the enormous response to this story (over 15,000 people have expressed interest), Pen City Current has announced a new promotion designed to raise funds and awareness for the puppies’ plight, as well as care for the other animals in the charge of P.A.W. of which there are over 200 at this time.
Pen City Current encourages all pet owners and animal lovers to post or tweet their most adorable pet picture with the hashtag #PCCPawwsomePets and tag us @PenCityCurrent . We will gather all pet photos onto a page on our website and encourage visitors to vote for their favorite pet photo and make a donation to the shelter through our page. All photos posted through Tuesday, Feb. 7, will be uploaded to the page. Voting will commence Wednesday, February 8 and will end Valentine’s Day Tuesday, Feb. 14. The winning photo will be announced on this website and our social media channels.
100% of the funds raised through this promotion will be donated to P.A.W. at the conclusion of the promotion. To donate directly to the organization, please visit their website here.
