Just ten days are left in PAWS’ 2021 Tuxes and Tails Comedy Campaign

JACKSON, Wyo. — With just ten days to go in their online Comedy Campaign, PAWS of Jackson Hole has offered laughter and levity in an otherwise challenging fundraising landscape. In a move that some locals are calling genius, PAWS hired local, actor, writer, and comedian Andrew Munz to create a series of pet-themed comedy vignettes that launch every Wednesday through June 4th on social media, and through email to engage the public and inspire donations. Today’s installment features “Merlin,” a recently neutered, and quite pampered feline character.

To help meet their $200,000 campaign fundraising goal, PAWS has secured a $100,000 Challenge Match which means every dollar donated between today and June 4th will be matched! This is a fantastic opportunity to double your donation to help local pets in need. As of today, PAWS has raised a total of $152,705.

PAWS of Jackson Hole is a non-profit organization, 100% funded by private donations and grants. Donations help meet the ever-increasing needs of local pets and their families through PAWS 8 pet service programs. In 2020, PAWS saw a dramatic increase in demand for their services, with more than 1,000 requests for assistance with spay/neuter and hundreds of requests for veterinary financial assistance. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors and donors they were able to meet everyone’s needs. This year the fundraising landscape has changed as people return to their normal lives. As the COVID crisis passes, the PAWS organization and other non-profits are seeing a decline in donations.

PAWS goal in 2021 is to ensure no pet goes without vital care and no pet has to be relinquished to a local animal shelter due to a short-term financial constraint. Please consider joining PAWS this year for the Comedy Campaign and double your donation through the Campaign Match which ends June 4th!

To donate to PAWS Comedy Campaign, buy a raffle ticket for a week-long stay in a 4-bedroom Manhattan Beach home or see Andrew Munz’s hilarious videos, just go to pawsofjh.org. For more information or questions email david@pawsofjh.org or call the PAWS office at 307.734.2441.
