Over 1,500 animals come through the doors of Paws and Claws Humane Society in Rochester, MN each year. That's a lot of animals to care for! And while these cats and dogs are looking for their forever homes they, of course, are cared for at Paws and Claws. And that costs a lot of money.

That's where we come in!

Each year, Paws and Claws does an auction to raise money for the care of these animals, and the 2023 auction is right around the corner.

The only way you can snag one of these is at the auction!

And if you need any more incentive to go, animals who are up for adoption will also be there! Maybe you'll get to meet these two cuties, Maya and Sarah.

The cat that my husband and I adopted from Paws and Claws is sitting on my lap while I write this, so now you have to go. Sahara says please and thank you!
