Dear Clients, Donors and Volunteers:
It is with much sadness I announce that P.A.W.S. Colorado will cease operations effective April 1, 2014.
After a great deal of thought the Board of Directors voted unanimously at our December meeting that the organization has reached a cross roads and it is time to cease operations. The inability to attract qualified and motivated leadership along with declines in monetary donations and volunteer support has left us with no choice but to suspend all services.
As the founder of the organization the closure of P.A.W.S. is especially personal to me. I started P.A.W.S. six years ago with the goal to help as many clients and their companion animals as possible. For the last six years we have raised tens of thousands of dollars in donations, distributed several tons of pet food and supplies. With all of that I like to think, at some level, our mission has made a positive impact on the quality of our clients and their pets lives. My only regret is not being able to grow the organization to a level of sustainability.
Thank you to everyone for your support over the passt few years.
Brian J. Fifolt
President & Founder
