Shelter Opens, CLAW Makes Donation!
At the Bowie City Council Meeting on Tuesday, February 17th, Bowie CLAW donated the remaining $84,000 to the City of Bowie to defray the cost of the City's local animal holding facility. CLAW had previously donated a $20,000 "down payment" in November 2014. The facility is now up and running, and has already hosted some four-legged guests!
In the photo above, CLAW President Tara Kelley-Baker and Vice President Michael Semeniuk present the check to Bowie Mayor G. Frederick Robinson.
Since its official opening on February 7th of this year, the facility has hosted a number of Bowie pets, including dogs and cats. A few of the dogs were reclaimed by their owners on the same day they were picked up by Bowie Animal Control. The remaining pets, who were not claimed by their owners after several days, were turned over to Prince George's County Animal Management and many have since been adopted.
The members of CLAW are very pleased with the new facility and look forward to continuing our great partnership with the City!
The purpose of this contest is to share positive stories about pets that were adopted from a shelter or rescue. Anyone and everyone is encouraged to participate!
The Prince George’s County Animal Management Division is providing free spay and neuter service as part of their “Spay-A-Day” program!
At our May general meeting, the membership elected one new Board member and gave a second member another term. Board members then appointed a new cadre of officers.
