PAWS Plea: ‘Help!’


Ginger Ginger Rockdale PAWS (Pet Adoption Welfare Service) is sending out a plea for assistance after situations have developed involving several dogs it is caring for at the local shelter.

PAWS has recently acquired a dog they’ve christened “Ginger.”

She was struck by a car and has been checked over by a veterinarian. Diagnosis is that Ginger needs extensive surgery at a cost of at least $1,200.

“She is going to be in pain until she gets the surgery,” Kayla Wieczorek, PAWS volunteer said.

Anyone wanting to assist Ginger may make contributions at: Rockdale PAWS, PO Box 1453, Rockdale, TX 76567.

Wieczorek said several dogs at the local shelter have tested positive for heart worms and need treatments before they can be adopted out to new families.

Donations may be made to the same PO box.

She said the Rockdale shelter, which was designed to hold 12 animals, currently has 27 occupants.
