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 five Bowie pets - four dogs and one cat. Two of the dogs were reclaimed by their owners on the same day they were picked up by Bowie Animal Control. The remaining three pets, who were not claimed by their owners after several days, were turned over to Prince George's County Animal Management and 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!
Bowie CLAW will host a “Meet and Greet” event on Sunday, April 26, 2015 to introduce the public to a bunch of adoptable dogs from the Prince George’s County Animal Services Facility, hoping to find them a permanent home.
Hello Bowie CLAW Members & Friends! Please join us for our next general meeting on Tuesday, May 12th, at 7:30 PM.
The Spay Spa and Neuter Nook in Davidsonville is offering FREE spay/neuter services for community (feral) cats for the month of April.
On Saturday, February 7th, 2015, the City of Bowie officially opened its Temporary Animal Holding Rooms with a “Leash Cutting” Ceremony. This event marks a major milestone in Bowie CLAW’s history, as CLAW was founded years ago specifically to lobby for the establishment of a local shelter.
Bowie CLAW would like to take a moment to thank all of our generous local sponsors for their invaluable support!
