Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter Pet Paver Fundraiser

Posted on December 14, 2016 at 9:17 AM by Communications Department

Help build a walkway for whiskers and wings and all kinds of things

The Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter, a facility that provides a variety of animal services to all different types of animals, has launched the Pet PaverPRASlogo_sc Fundraiser to help enhance the wellbeing of the shelter’s animals as they await their forever home. The shelter is selling engraved bricks to be placed in the walkways near the entrance to the building. The proceeds from this fundraiser will be used for three initiatives that directly support the animals: a fenced-in, outdoor dog exercise area; a fenced-in, outdoor meet-and-greet area; and an off-site adoption bus to transport animals safely out into the communities.

Purchase a brick today through January 1 for special holiday prices. One 4”X8” red clay brick containing up to three lines of text and a clip art or logo image can be purchased for $75 while an 8"x8" red clay brick containing up to six lines of text without a clip art/logo image, or five lines of text with a clip art/logo image is available for $750. PRASPaver_SCRegular prices, post-holiday special, are $100 for the 4"x8" brick and $1000 for the 8"x8" brick. Due to limited spacing, only 10 of the 8"x8" bricks will be sold. For an additional $15 donation, the shelter is offering an engraved 4"x4" replica tile as a keepsake! The tile will contain the same text and image as the brick purchased and must be purchased at the same time as the brick.

Payments can be made online by check or credit card through PayPal. For those who don't wish to purchase an engraved brick, donations of any amount can be made towards these initiatives at the shelter.
