Call for New PAWS Board Members

PAWS (Pet Assistance and Welfare Services)

PAWS will be hosting a general meeting, open to the public, on Thursday, July 29, 2010, at Shenanigan's in Garapan at 5:30 p.m.. The purpose of the meeting is to solicit volunteers for the organization.

Currently, PAWS is undergoing a change in board members. President Katie Busenkell will be resigning in mid-August because she is moving off-island. Board Member Ron Smith will also be resigning in order to pursue other volunteer commitments. The only board member remaining with the organization will be Bobbi Grizzard, who has acted as Treasurer since 1993 when the organization was first established.

"I'm not leaving the organization or closing its doors," said Bobbi Grizzard. "We'll just have to limp along until new energy shows up on the island."

Volunteers are needed to answer calls to the PAWS hotline (285-PAWS), pick-up and/or advertise unwanted and abandoned animals, and reach out to the public.

If you are interested in volunteering for PAWS, in any capacity, please call 285-PAWS, email Bobbi Grizzard at, or simply come to the meeting at Shenanigan's on July 29, 2010, at 5:30 p.m.
