Helping Paws Day is Tuesday, August 3!
First, we want THANK YOU for always being awesome in your support of Helping Paws. They do so much good for our community.
Second, we have the final tally for our Helping Paws August online ordering donation option. You helped raise $4,400 (in addition to the $5,700 from Helping Paws Day on August 3!) That’s $10,100 raised for Helping Paws this year! AMAZING!!
Thank you for all your support this year and don’t forget to check out their free virtual Tail Waggin’ Gala coming up September 11, 2021.
This year, we’re holding our sixth annual Helping Paws Day on Tuesday, August 3! Davanni’s is giving back 10% of all dine-in, curbside, and takeout sales to Helping Paws. Also, during the month of August, you can add on a donation for Helping Paws to your online order! Through your orders and donations, we’ve been able to give back more than $30,000 to Helping Paws over the years.
Helping Paws, locally based in Hopkins, is the organization that trains and provides service dogs for individuals with physical disabilities and veterans and first responders with PTSD. Helping Paws’ mission is, quite simply, “Furthering people’s independence and quality of life through the use of Assistance Dogs.”
Helping Paws dogs are valued at approximately $30,000 at the time of graduation. Helping Paws provides dogs free of charge through events like these, private donations, grants, and other fundraising opportunities.
We are so honored to also announce that Helping Paws named one of their dogs in training “Davanni”! We’ll be sharing photos along the way of Davanni’s progress.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you Tuesday, August 3!
