This event is sponsored by The Henson Hotel and Pound Paws, the latter being a registered charity that encourages people to adopt not shop and assists in creating a positive attitude towards pounds, which are sometimes looked upon as being a place for rejected pets or a place where they go to die. Pound Paws are also focused on educating the public that putting an animal to sleep is not the right option, when there are so many beautiful animals waiting for new homes.
Supported by donations, volunteers and sponsors to support their operations, Pound Paws donates its services to other pounds and potential pet owners at no charge. When Pound Paws commenced in 2014, there was approximately 250,000 pets being euthanised each year. These were healthy and treatable dogs being born and the only certainty their lives held, was that they were bound for death row.
