CLAW TAWK May 2018

New News

Happy Mother’s day! Especially those with lots of four-legged babies!

Upcoming Events

Mark your calendar, our next general meeting is an important one to make. May 19th 9:30 at Bowie City Hall. Bowie CLAW will hold an election for two full-term positions on the Board of Directors at the May 19, 2018 general meeting.
We also seek a person to fill the last year of another Director seat. 

At its June meeting the new Board will elect officers for the 2018-2019 term. You can offer yourself as a candidate for Vice President, Treasurer or Secretary without being a Director, though you must be a member. To stand for President you must first be elected a Director. If you wish to run for an office let me know by return e-mail or at the May meeting. Please consider participating, and thank you for your continued support.

Take me out to a ballgame! Remember to join us at the following Sunday home games for the Bay Sox Diamond Dog.

May 13: Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland

June 3: Black Dogs and Company

June 17: Canine Companions for Independence

July 8: Hill Hounds

July 22: Lu’s Labs

August 26: Puppy Paws

September 2: Operation Paws for Home

Bowie CLAW Friends are Fostering

A number of our wonderful volunteers foster for Prince George’s Animal Management.  If you are interested, we can set you up! It is an extremely rewarding opportunity.  Please reach out to us for further information.

“This is Larry. He was one of over 50 kittens we’ve fostered. My kids have never known a house without animals. And fostering these babies has brought my family together; we are all committed to caring for them and finding them their forever homes.  A tremendous experience everyone should try!”

How You Can Help

Looking for leaders! We want to hold more animal welfare events, but we are limited in volunteers who are interested in leading them. We welcome new event ideas and would love to hold more. If you have an idea and are willing lead it, please step forward! You won’t be alone, we have plenty of people who can help at the events and a supportive Board who has your back.

Shout out! A big Paws up for everyone who came out to the Meet and Greet. It was an outstanding success as usual. 

Thank you again! See you at our general meeting Saturday May 19th!

Hey, federal employees!  Please consider supporting Bowie CLAW in your Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) contributions this year!  Our Campaign Number is 15690.  Thank you!
