A Letter from Tiny Paws Big Hearts Rescue Inc.

 

Dear Community Supporter,


I am contacting you on behalf of Tiny Paws Big Hearts Rescue Inc. to request your support for our 2012 fundraising efforts.

Tiny Paws Big Hearts Rescue is a nonprofit dog rescue located in Tonawanda, N.Y.

 Our mission:  To rescue small breed dogs, primarily from puppymills, provide complete veterinary care (including spay/ neuter and all vaccinations), rehabilitation, and adoption into approved, forever homes.

We do not have a free standing shelter. We have a small group of experienced foster homes that provide our rescue dogs with a loving home life prior to adoption. All funds raised are directly used to provide vet care, good nutrition and grooming for our dogs.

Barbecue Season is Upon Us! Remember to Play it Safe at the Grill

Barbecue Season is Upon Us! Remember to Play it Safe at the Grill

Lifesaving Tips from the Firemen’s Association of the State of NY…

With Memorial Day weekend right around the corner, many people will be hosting backyard barbecues. The Firemen’s Association of the State of New York (FASNY) is reminding residents to follow important fire safety tips so that they can enjoy a safe summer season. 

“The outdoor cookout season will soon be in full swing.  Unfortunately, a barbecue grill could start a fire if certain safety rules are ignored,” said Firemen’s Association of the State of New York President David Jacobowitz.  “It’s important to position the grill far away from siding, deck railings, trees and other flammables. When gatherings involve children, it’s critical that a child-free zone of at least three feet is established around the grill.”

A Plethora of Eco-Friendly Events On Tap for Earth Day at Niagara University

A Plethora of Eco-Friendly Events On Tap for Earth Day at Niagara University

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day last April, The Princeton Review, in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council, published a comprehensive guidebook focused on institutions of higher education who demonstrated an above average commitment to sustainability in terms of campus infrastructure, activities and initiatives.

From the Buffalo-Niagara region, only Niagara University was included on that list of the country's most environmentally responsible colleges.

One year later, Niagara is making preparations to celebrate that distinction and, more importantly, inspire awareness for the Earth's natural environment by presenting over 20 eco-friendly exhibitions as part of Earth Day 2011.
