Charity Highlight: Paw Prints In The Sand
'The godly care for their animals, but the wicked are always cruel. '
Proverbs 12:10 NLT
God doesn’t want us to just be kind and loving to other people, but to all of his creation. This week, we’re highlighting an organization that has a connection to Heaven On Wheels.
Paw Prints In The Sand is an animal rescue organization founded by none other than Heaven On Wheels contributor Kelly Reeves. She’s been dedicated to helping animals for over 25 years, and with co-founder Monica Soderholm, PPITS has become a beacon of hope to abandoned and abused animals.
The mission of Paw Prints In The Sand?
To give at-risk animals a second chance at life by providing medical care, training, and loving forever homes.
We strive to save as many lives as possible and put an end to animal abuse, abandonment and neglect. Our goal is to reduce shelter overpopulation, needless euthanasia, owner surrenders and the number of stray animals who roam our streets by promoting spaying and neutering, responsible pet ownership, and pet retention.
There are a number of ways for you to help! You can donate, adopt or foster an animal in need, and even volunteer your time. Through your assistance, you’ll be a voice for those creations of God who cannot speak for themselves.
