One PAW at a time
Can you imagine going through a difficult time in your life, and not having the resources to take care of you beloved pet, and therefore having to surrender your furry family member to a rescue organization? Sadly, that is the reality for many individuals and families.
Lynn Molnar is the founder of Thankful Paws Inc. As a volunteer and host of various fundraisers for local animal groups and causes - Lynn decided to broaden her horizons by forming Thankful Paws. She helps individuals and families care for their pet when difficult times jeopardize the family. Thankful Paws provides pet food, pet supplies, blankets and other necessities for animals when their family is struggling to meet their needs. I was so inspired by Lynn’s story and what she is doing to PAW it Forward! Food Banks are such an important pillar in our community. For many reasons, food banks don’t have pet food so what Lynn is doing, is meeting an important need.
She also writes a column for the Examiner online at Baltimore Animal Advocacy. Check out the fabulous article that she wrote about our dog, Toby. Baltimore Examiner News: http://www.examiner.com/article/meet-toby-therapy-dog
I so enjoyed learning about what Lynn does and the organization that she started. Thankful Paws is a new organization dedicated to help people keep their pets during difficult financial times. Thankful Paws is a mobile food bank for pets, distributing pet food and supplies to people in their local communities. Lynn Molnar, the founder and President of Thankful Paws Inc. holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Johns Hopkins University, has been a vegetarian since the age of 16, and a strong supporter of animals welfare because of the love of animals that was instilled in her from her mother. www.thankfulpaws.org
Thankful Paws mobile food bank for pets provides an extremely important and well needed service in the community that Lynn resides. Her priorities are providing service to senior citizens, homeless individuals and veterans. Lynn has a big vision for Thankful Paws, it is her hope to expand this organization to be a nationwide service.
You can listen to the incredible conversation we had on PAWsitive Radio, all things pet show!
Thank you Lynn and Thankful Paws for what you do to make our world a better place, for us all!
