Avoiding a CATastrophe Raffle

Project “Avoiding A “CAT” astrophe” for the Poquoson Animal Welfare Sanctuary is now underway!!

The sanctuary was built in 1945 and as you can imagine, just like any home...things break, crack, and sometimes just stop working.  In order to continue, we have to make extensive repairs soon. Our cost estimate at this time is just under $12,000, which will include: French drain installation, sump pump, moisture barrier, treating mold under the sanctuary, fixing joist beams, and plumbing work.  And that’s just the start!!

To help raise money we have received three PAWSOME raffle items that you are not going to want to miss!! Our amazing friends at KEES Travel and Kingsmill Resort Williamsburg, and Shelbi with Bonilla Pet Studio have donated in a BIG WAY.
