PAWS (Providing Animal Welfare Support) has recently been forced to close its shop at Dalton due to the application to demolish the building being granted. It has re-opened in new premises situated on Bawtry Road, Bramley, near to the cross roads and next door to the Travellers Rest public house.
PAWS first opened its doors in May 2017 and during the first year of trading has donated in the region of £10,000 to a number of local animal rescue causes. These include Rotherham Dog Rescue, Rotherham Rescue Rangers, Friends of Ferals and a number of small home run rescues, for the likes of rabbits, hedgehogs and reptiles.
The shop is run by a team of passionate animal lovers that wanted to help all types of neglected and unloved animals by raising money so as to donate to local animal rescues to assist in the upkeep of their amazing and relentless work. It is overseen by a team of trustees and their aim is to assist local registered rescues. They face the never ending line of neglected/homeless animals and small home-run rescues struggle to fund-raise. They also help pet owners they find their beloved pet in need of medical treatment and are financially struggling.
As with any charity shop, volunteers are invaluable, and as PAWS now occupies new premises, it is in desperate need of people who are willing to give a couple of hours each week freely, to help with the day-to-day running of the shop. If you are able to volunteer please call into the shop or contact them via their Facebook page.
PAWS are thrilled that they have been able to donate this amount of money, this is all down to the generosity of the donations and its customers. With every item you donate and every purchase you make, you are helping a neglected/homeless animal.
