Millions of animals enter shelters nationwide every year, but it doesn’t take much to save an animal’s life. I recently teamed up with a local animal shelter here in Aurora, 4 Paws 4 U 4 Ever, and helped save a 12 week old puppy’s life. This beautiful 12-week-old Weimaraner, now known as “Potts,” will now be able to live the life he deserves. I am proud to say I helped rescue this dog, and was inspired to continue helping in any way that I can.

The rescue led to the creation of Paws for a Cause, Peerless-AV’s latest charitable initiative for the month of August. We have such a creative group of individuals at Peerless-AV, so I was excited to share my ideas and get the ball rolling on this project. During Paws for a Cause, we will be gathering supplies, hosting an adoption event, and assisting the shelter with photos of animals available for adoption. All of our departments will be teaming up to promote this fundraiser, so we can help as many animals as possible.

In addition, Peerless-AV will be attending the AZA Annual Conference in mid-September, and we are thrilled to have donated a 42″ Xtreme™ TV for the AZA Conservation Grants Fund (CGF) Silent Auction. The Conservation Grants Fund helps support the initiatives created by the AZA and AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums. More than $45,000 has been raised between the last three conferences.

The Peerless-AV family strives to ‘Get It Right’ in all aspects of our lives and a big part of that includes being good corporate citizens. I’m proud to be part of a team that supports, among many other causes, animal welfare. Tell me, what are some of your favorite charitable causes to support?
