PAWS Beneficiary //

Beneficiary of Pawsitively Elgin is actively involved in the planning committee and participates fully in the Pawsitively Elgin annual event. Two rescues are chosen each year to split the *profits from the event.  To date we have raised and distributed over $46,000, not only to our event beneficiaries, but also other Ontario Rescues fundraising efforts.

In order to become a beneficiary of Pawsitively Elgin, a rescue must:

  • provide proof their rescues has an adoption application and process
  • provide a letter from their veterinarian office stating that they provide services for the rescue and those services include neutering and spaying
  • sign Beneficiary Commitment Form (contract) that they will abide by the policies of Pawsitively Eglin
  • understand that their contract is in place for 1 year only however they can reapply each year
  • work with the PAWS Committee by actively attending all virtual and live meetings
  • continually advertise the event and their role in the event through social media and contacts
  • support and assist in pre-event duties as needed (i.e.: collect pre-used items for the Mega Mutts yard sale, recruit volunteers, help with setup/tear down of event, etc.)
  • be there the Friday before the event to assist in the set-up of the event with the other committee members
  • solicit items from their rescue’s contacts for the raffle and silent action tables
  • participate the day of the event by having an active “host” booth spotlighting their rescue
  • actively participate in seeking reliable volunteer resources for the day of the event to work at both your booth and at the event
  • agree to provide a detailed list as to what the money the rescue received was used for – this information will be made public by Pawsitively Elgin in full transparency to its committee, vendors and event participants
