Canine Company supports Danbury Animal Welfare Society (DAWS) in 'Making a Difference'

Canine Company will be the 'Heart of Gold' sponsor at the Sixth Annual DAWS Making a Difference Ball on March 9, 2013 at the Ethan Allen Hotel in Danbury, CT.

At 6PM on March 9, 2013, Canine Company will sponsor the Sixth Annual DAWS (http://www.daws.org ) Making a Difference Ball at the Ethan Allen Hotel in Danbury, CT to benefit the Danbury Animal Welfare Society, Inc, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of animals in the greater Danbury community and beyond. The Making a Difference Ball is the organization’s largest annual fundraiser, attended by over 300 people and supported by hundreds of others. The event will feature silent and live auctions, plentiful food and drink, and live musical entertainment.

In 2012, DAWS provided medical care to over 1,200 animals and helped over 730 dogs and cats find their forever homes.  "This year DAWS hopes to raise funds to further expand the shelter and clinic to provide more life-saving care to our most vulnerable dogs and cats in the community. This fundraiser is indispensable in helping us accomplish our goals,” said Christopher Rohland, President, DAWS Board of Directors. DAWS promotes responsible pet guardianship and the humane treatment of animals. They work toward ending animal overpopulation through education and a variety of programs. The staff and volunteers of DAWS take pride in working to keep homeless pets sheltered, safe, and happy.

The products and services provided by Canine Company are intended to keep pets healthy, happy, and safe while providing their owners with peace of mind and simple, enjoyable relationships with their pets.

“We share the mission of keeping dogs and cats safe and alive. Our products and services are intended to enrich relationships between pets and their owners by ensuring safety and reducing stress. We commend DAWS for working hard to save the lives of pets while placing them in loving homes,” said Jennifer Hill, Owner and VP of Canine Company.

This year’s DAWS honorees will be their very own veterinarians, Cary Brenner, DVM and Tamara McArdle, DVM. Their dedication and perseverance in helping homeless animals personified the DAWS mission. After learning of this honor, Dr. McArdle, a graduate of the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, said, “I am truly flattered to be an honoree at this year's DAWS Making a Difference Ball. This fundraiser is key. Every dollar raised really will make a difference! From the high quality facilities to the outstanding technical staff, the DAWS medical program is one that I am incredibly proud to represent.”
