Each year in our community over 17,000 dogs and cats enter our local municipal shelter systems. Each year over 11,000 of those same animals are euthanized due to lack of space, time and resources. The taxpayers in our community spend over $2.5 million each year to pick up, house and euthanize these animals, most of whom are healthy, adoptable pets. There is another way, a more responsible, more humane solution to this issue. Pawmetto Lifeline, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit animal rescue organization, located right here in Columbia is using national best practice models to end the issue of pet overpopulation and ultimately the use of euthanasia as our only practical means of animal control. They have the solution and we are here to help.
On April 24, 2021, Atkins Law Firm will be participating in Bark Around Your Block. We are asking for your support in sponsoring our team in this endeavor. We have a personal goal of raising $1000.00 for this cause which will help Pawmetto Lifeline to rescue animals from the shelter that would otherwise be lost to euthanasia and help them to prepare those pets for adoption into loving homes. You can do so by going on line to www.barktothepark.com, look up Atkins Law Firm and click on the donate button. Your contributions are 100% tax deductible.
Thank you so much for considering lending your support to our campaign for this cause.
