2017 Calendars and Pause 4 Paws Raffle

By Terry Libro, MWCR President

2017 Calendars

It’s time again to take and save cute high resolution photos of your calendar cutie!

Here are the tips:

(1)  The photo must be of high quality. The originally taken photo should be at least 1M in size and the bigger the better, really!  When you send the photos in be sure your email program doesn’t shrink them for portability. We’ll let you know if they are too small.

(2) Please email your photographs to: mwcrcalpics@yahoo.com

(3)  Please, PLEASE include a bit of info about your collie. Age, year rescued or adopted, cute personality trait, etc … oh yes, and NAME, too.

(4) Please get your photos in by September 7, 2016. That should give us ample time to design, review, and order calendars for arrival in time for the annual dinner.

Our Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue calendars showcase our precious collies and are a very successful fundraiser for MWCR.  The calendars make great gifts – who couldn’t resist smiling and feeling happy when looking at photos of our beautiful adopted dogs!

Pause 4 Paws Raffle

For the last five years, the Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue has been fortunate to be an affiliate of Pause 4 Paws, a 501(c)3 nonprofit that raises funds for select rescues and humane societies in the area.  MWCR has benefited from the generosity of the Pause 4 Paws organization which has helped pay for veterinary care for our collies.

Once again, Pause 4 Paws is holding a raffle to raise funds for rescues.  Tickets this year are $50 each.  The drawing will be at their annual fundraiser on November 4 with ten winners.  If all raffle tickets are sold, Pause 4 Paws will give one $5000 prize, two $2500 prizes, three $500 prizes, and four $250 prizes to the lucky winners.  Winners do not need to be present to win.  This is a 50/50 raffle with half of the money raised going to Pause 4 Paws to distribute to rescues and half of the money going to the lucky winners.

Raffle tickets can be purchased by mailing a check, made out to Pause 4 Paws, to MWCR at 1600 18th Avenue NE, PO Box 68006, Minneapolis, MN 55418.  The raffle tickets will be mailed to you.

Let’s have a little fun and support the good work of Pause 4 Paws and their affiliate rescues.  Good luck and thank you for supporting Pause 4 Paws and MWCR!
