President’s Message


President's Message

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the PAWS website page and thank you for your interest in our fundraising activities that support the Humane Society of Broward County.

Pets Are Worth Saving was established 20 years ago and it is such an honor for me to serve as the auxiliary’s President for the coming year. I am following in the footsteps of many extraordinary women and look forward to guiding the PAWS Board and general membership through another successful fundraising season.

Twenty years ago, PAWS had one large fundraising event a year: the Blue Jean/Black Tie Ball, also known as the Doggie Ball. Today we have several large events in addition to smaller membership socials. PAWS members also participate in the shelter’s annual largest fundraising event, Walk for the Animals.

If you want to become involved in the community and support the homeless animals and the many wonderful programs and services at the Humane Society of Broward County, then the PAWS fundraising auxiliary is for you! Over the years, PAWS members have been responsible for raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to support the shelter.

All of our passion, hard work, great ideas, and incredible fun have had a direct impact on the Humane Society of Broward County; it has evolved into a first-rate animal shelter, one that is highly respected throughout the country.

I hope you will join in the fun as we embark on another successful fundraising season!

Julie Strauch
