The Story

Construction is underway and El Dorado County will open its new Animal Services Facility in late 2014 – the first permanent Animal Shelter on the Western Slope. While County funds will complete the project, PAWED’s goal is to raise $200,000 to fund specific equipment and exterior features as part of our FINISHING TOUCHES Campaign. (Some of that money has already come in; Crowdrise is one of several efforts.) We are about to realize a long standing objective – a healthy, inviting, modern animal shelter, designed to meet proven care standards and maximize successful adoptions. Help put the finishing touches on an exceptional community resource. Join us in making a meaningful and lasting impact on the lives of shelter animals, now and for years to come. What we’re funding - PAWED is partnering with the El Dorado Community Foundation to achieve the following goals: Dog Exercise Areas – Synthetic Turf & Shade Structures – (estimated cost: $30,000 – $35,000 each for turf and shade structures) Large Animal Barn - (cost: $55,000) Cat Condos - (cost: $800 per unit; 39 units total cost $31,200) New Generation Cat Towers - (cost: $2,500 each, 3 units $7,500 total) [Crijo Tower] Grooming Tub and Table - (cost: $3,500 total for tub & table) Medical Clinic Equipment - (cost: $35,000 for all equipment) Recognizing Donors: All gifts to our Finishing Touches campaign are important and will be recognized. Because of the special and long lasting nature of this public project and the unique recognition opportunities it presents, PAWED has, in collaboration with El Dorado County, developed special recognition methods for particular Donor categories: Major Donors - Major donors will be recognized in a public area of the facility. Gifts of $1,000 or more will be recognized on a permanent plaque placed in a public viewing area of the new Animal Services Facility. Donation Level: $1000 Donor Tile Program Our donor tile program will be available soon, making it possible for you to “buy a tile” and provide us with a digital photo of your pet. Photo Donor Tiles will be permanently installed in a mural format, in the adoption area of the new Shelter. Donation Level: $200 Naming Opportunities are available for Legacy Level Gifts Donation Level: $10,000 and up
