DAWS Saves 900 Pet Lives in 2011 & Gears Up For 2012 With Ball

“I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.  For me they are the role model for being alive.”  ~Gilda Radner

During 2011 the Danbury Animal Welfare Society (DAWS), which operates out of a facility on Grassy Plain Road in Bethel, saved the lives and provided medical care to over 900 animals in need, according to their Facebook page.

“We’d like to thank you for all your support this past year. Please join us on our Facebook page and share photos of your pet and your wishes and resolutions for 2012.”

To start off 2012 on the right foot, or paw, DAWS is gearing up for their for their biggest fundraisers of the year. On Saturday, March 10, 2012, DAWS will hold its fifth annual Making a Difference Ball. The event is attended by more than 350 people and supported by hundreds more through sponsorships, ads, financial and in-kind donations.

The theme this year’s ball is “One Step Closer,”  which, according to DAWS website, recognizes “all of the ways people help animals get closer to their forever homes, including one aspect of our program that doesn’t always get a lot of attention: foster care.” Because  DAWS can only care for a limited number of adult animals at the shelter,  foster families are extremely important in enabling more animals to be rescued and eventually adopted.

The Making a Difference Ball includes silent and live auctions, food, drinks and entertainment by Connecticut’s premier event band, Higher & Higher. The reservation deadline is March 1, 2012.  DAWSis requesting a suggested donation of  $150 per person or a “Leader of the Pack” package isavailable for table hosts for $1200 for  a table of 10.

Please contact DAWS at dawsball@daws.org for more information and to make your reservation. For more information about DAWS or the Making a Difference ball or to purchase tickets online  please visit their website by clicking here.
