Letter: Event helped families care for their pets

Posted

To the editor:

On behalf of Family Pet Advocates, I would like to thank all of the area artists and artisans, local businesses, authors and musicians, volunteers and attendees who contributed to our first Art 4 Paws fundraising event, held on August 3.

There was an amazing response from the community in support of our mission to assist local families in need with the resources they require to keep their pets at home. 

Thanks to the combined efforts of many, Family Pet Advocates, a 501(c)(3) organization, will be able to provide the supplies and services needed to allow people to properly care for their beloved animals during the challenges of life when they need each other the most.

We are very grateful for everyone's help in making Art 4 Paws such a success.  Low-income, elderly and/or disabled Rhode Island residents may get more information on the services we offer by visiting http://www.familypetadvocates.org, emailing the organization at familypetadvocates@gmail.com or calling 401-297-1426.

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
