LAWS Shelter - 253 Glenview Road, Smiths Falls
AVAILABLE BARN CATS
Life on the streets can be tough. We currently have several cats in the shelter who for whatever reason are just not interested in life as a pampered indoor pet. These independent felines need a special type of placement.
We call these cats our "Barn Buddies". They will guard your property and help to naturally control your rodent population - In exchange, all they ask is for someone to provide them with regular meals, a warm and dry place to rest and someone to watch out for them.
Don't let the term "Barn Buddies" fool you, they're not picky. If you have a barn, warehouse, greenhouse or other outdoor building, will you consider giving one or more of these special cats an alternative to living in the shelter?
Do you like Pizza? Do you like to save money while donating to a worthy cause?
If YES, have we got a DEAL for you!
LAWS is selling Domino's Pizza Fundraiser Cards for $10 each. LAWS gets $8 for each card sold which will go directly to our Shelter Capital Campaign. You get free pizzas, free pasta, free bread at any of the 7 locations listed on the card - Carleton Place, Cornwall, Barrhaven, Arnprior, Renfrew, Pembroke and Petawawa.
This is a great deal you don't want to miss out on. Special thanks to Domino's Pizza for sponsoring.
These Fundraiser Cards are available for purchase at the LAWS shelter, 11am-4pm daily.

THANK YOU PET VALU ALMONTE!
A huge thank you goes out to the staff at Pet Valu Almonte. Their goal for Pet Appreciation month in support of LAWS was $3300. They exceeded that goal and raised a whopping $4425.80!!! This will go a long way to help all of the Paws at LAWS.

LAWS CAPITAL CAMPAIGN - NEW SHELTER BUILDAnimal lovers Dave and Cathy Lindstedt helped launch the New Digs for LAWS capital campaign with a $5,000 donation at last year's 'Walk Your Paws for LAWS' Event. A further $5,000 which was raised that day, has helped launch LAWS on the road to its goal of $525,000 for the campaign.
The campaign has a $525,000 goal to either build a new shelter for the Lanark Animal Welfare Society or provide significant upgrades to its current location.
