Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS) is a human services organization in San Francisco “...dedicated to preserve, support and nurture the human-animal bond for those most vulnerable in our community.” From the provision of emotional and vital pet care support services – such as pet food, subsidized vet care, dog walking, and in-home pet care – to educating the community about the human-animal bond, PAWS truly has a meaningful impact on the community they serve.
With over 30 veterinary partners and over 500 volunteers, who provide in-home pet care and assist with the distribution of pet food and supplied to homes and at the PAWS food bank, PAWS is designed to assist those most in need in San Francisco – enabling them to care for their companion animals in the face of financial and physical challenges.
On May 24th, Skymosity volunteers will be contributing their work ethic and smiles to assist in distributing food from the PAWS food bank to PAWS clients, as well as, through a generous donation from BarkBox.com, handing out goodies and healthy treats to those clients receiving pet food for their dogs.
“The generosity of Skymosity and their employees is crucial for PAWS,” adds Aaron Chandler, the Executive Director of PAWS. “Every year, we serve 800 clients and their 900 companion animals – this life-saving work could not happen without the support of Skymosity, and the dozens of other Bay Area companies and their employees, every year.”
Skymosity, a breakthrough weather marketing company, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, has been donating time and resources to local non-profit organizations since its founding in 2013.
“We’re very excited about the opportunity to be a few of the many volunteers that contribute towards the awareness of PAWS doing such awesome work, as well as contributing towards their continued success in the community,” said Andrew Christison, Director of Business Development, Skymosity. “That BarkBox has made such a generous donation towards helping us to help PAWS makes the opportunity even more fulfilling.”
Beyond merely donating dozens of boxes of goodies for dogs, BarkBox has also set up a coupon code that allows anyone that signs up for a BarkBox with their code to automatically receive $5 off of their BarkBox subscription, as well as contribute $15 of their subscription as a donation directly to P.A.W.S.!
“We believe every dog should have a human, and every human should have a dog,” said Danielle Maveal, BarkBox. “Helping keep a strong and stable environment for both pups and pup owners is a common goal between PAWS and us, and we’re grateful to give to this cause.”
