President's Message

Dear Friends,

Thank you for visiting the PAWS website page and showing interest in our fundraising activities which support the Humane Society of Broward County.

Pets Are Worth Saving was established 21 years ago and I am honored to serve a second term as the auxiliary’s President for the upcoming 2018/2019 fundraising season.

During the past 21 years, the PAWS membership has been committed to supporting the mission of the Humane Society of Broward County and serving as animal welfare advocates throughout our community. Every year I look forward to being part of this wonderful tradition and invite you to join with us in supporting this worthy cause and have fun while doing so.

When the PAWS fundraising auxiliary was formed, members organized one event a year. Today we raise thousands of dollars for the animals through a variety of PAWS-sponsored events and membership socials. Our members are also top-fundraisers for the shelter’s largest annual fundraising event, Walk for the Animals.

The PAWS auxiliary’s signature event held each spring is the PAWS Gala, formerly known as the “Doggie Ball.” Other events include The Marti Huizenga PAWS on the Green Ladies’ Invitational Golf Tournament, Tea in the Garden, Fashion Forward for PAWS, and Angel PAWS Luncheon & Fashion Show, to name just a few.

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
