How you can help us out
Financially Supporting PAWS
As with many non-profit groups, we rely on the generosity of our supporters. Although this means we have no wages to pay, we still have expenses. Maintaining an office in the City of Perth is not cheap, but a prominent central location is necessary for easy public access and to get our message out.
Rent, electricity, phone/fax, printing, internet service, website hosting, water and other government charges all have to be paid. Like most non-profit groups we do not receive government funding; therefore we have to raise funds via public support, donations and other activities.
PAWS Supporters pay an annual membership fee and optionally sign up for a regular donation schedule to assist us with our cause, help maintain our office, a staffed phone,(many calls we receive are from distressed animal lovers who require advice or referrals regarding sick or injured animals).
By joining our society and becoming a financial supporter you are helping us conduct our community work, Your support will help pay for the distribution of free information packs, free brochures, phone calls, postage, website costs and other expenses.
As a support of the Society you will also be offered special discounts at our PAWS shop and from other PAWS approved establishments as well as invites to our social functions (including friends and family).
