Working together to control the overpopulation of homeless pets


raised by 24 people

$5,000 goal

To start GBL off right, Paw Prints would like first to say a GREAT BIG “THANK YOU” to ALL PAST SUPPORTERS! Without your generosity over the years, Paw Prints would not have been able to accomplish all that we have. 

Paw Prints believes that by spaying and neutering your pets, we can stop the overpopulation of animals in Dawson County! Animals will live longer and healthier lives and are at reduced risks of health issues down the road. 


  • Encourage spaying and neutering of cats and dogs.
  • Increase awareness of responsible pet ownership.
  • Promote the adoption of homeless companion animals.

When you donate on November 9th, YOU have the power to help reduce over 250 unwanted litters of puppies or kittens. 

Paw Prints would like to challenge you to donate and get TWO OTHER PEOPLE to donate the SAME AMOUNT OR HIGHER THAN YOURS! Please help us reach our GOAL of $5,000.

Every penny donated stays in Dawson County- spaying and neutering cats and dogs, both family pets and feral animals. 


In the summer of 2021, Board Member, Donna, got a call that there was a dog and three puppies in need of emergency placement. Miss Maple was one day away from being euthanized, and the puppies were scheduled that day. Rosalie took Miss Maple and the three puppies home with her. Every dog got a new home, but Miss Maple's adoption was incredible, considering she was scheduled to be euthanized. 

Rosalie recently had an experience where she called a member of the community asking if they could let their dog inside on a hot 100-degree day. His owner was at work and couldn't make it home to let him inside. By the time they reached home that afternoon, the dog had succumbed to heat exhaustion. Please let this be a learning experience so your pets don't suffer the same fate. If it's too cold or warm outside for you, it also is for your pets!

Monthly meetings are open to everyone, if you are interested in volunteering for Paw Prints or becoming a foster. Additional meeting information will be posted on the website and Facebook page.
