Costco donated nearly $800.00 in pet-care items for the dog show and PAWS rescues. Such items include Advantage for flea control, dog biscuits, dog treats, a pet pillow, puppy training pads, cat food, cat litter, and education books for children and adults.
Other community leaders, like the PEW Charitable Trust, Angil Design, Inc., and numerous CNMI residents, made monetary donations. The monetary donations were used to purchase prizes such as large bags of dog food, Frontline for flea and tick control, dog toys, and Adams shampoo and dip for flea and tick control, just to name a few.
“We have had an amazing amount of support from the community,” said PAWS Vice-President Melissa Simms. “And thanks to these generous donations, we will be able to award people for loving their pets. Our main objective in hosting the Dog Show is foster the human-animal bond.”
