GiveBigPittsburgh is an annual event to raise money for local nonprofits through a single online donation platform. It is a simple way to connect donors to the charitable causes they care about most. This online fundraising effort, hosted by Pittsburgh Magazine in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Foundation and local sponsors, offers nonprofits the chance to raise funds to support their critical missions.

Once again, Animal Care and Welfare is participating in this fundraising event. So far during the 2018 event,  ACW has raised $2175 to help our adoption animals.

If you missed the donation event, don't worry.  Our donation page for #GiveBigPittsburgh is accepting donations through December 31, 2018.  Just click on the link below to make an online donation to support our programs that help animals.

Sunny And Friends is an adorable children's book which tells adoption stories of shelter animals in their own words.  This book is fun and educational,  and would make a great gift for any child, young and old alike.

Sunny And Friends was written by Janis Kell of Chester, WV.  Janis volunteers at her local shelter and the book is based upon her experiences there. Pictured here is Janis and her former shelter cat Sunny, who is one of the shelter animals featured in the book.  Janis has very generously made this book available to rescues and shelters to sell as a fundraiser. 

Animal Care And Welfare is pleased to offer this book to our supporters.  The book is for sale at Paws Here Awhile Pet Resort in Georgetown PA, and will be offered at our offsite adoption events.  The cost of the book is $12.00 with proceeds benefitting Animal Care And Welfare.

We can also mail a copy of the book to you for $12.00 plus $2.00 for shipping-- a total of $14.00 for each book purchased by mail.  To order and pay by credit card, click onto our PayPal button to the left of the Home page.  Please be sure to give us your name, mailing address, and phone number.
