You and Your Pet Can Make a Difference Together at Matthew 25: Ministries

APRIL 8, 2019  Cincinnati, OH – Matthew 25: Ministries, an international humanitarian aid and disaster relief organization in Cincinnati, OH is hosting a fun event for the whole family—including your tail-wagging family member! The fourth annual “Paws for a Cause” takes place on Thursday, April 11. Bring your lovable canine companion with you to volunteer during our evening shift from 4:30 – 7:30 at our canine-friendly station. The evening includes doggie treats and a photo booth so you can commemorate the event. Register online at https://m25m.org/event/pawsforacause/. No pup? No problem! Volunteering will be open to the public as well.

Our pets are like family members,” said M25M CEO Tim Mettey, “If you work all day, you may not want to leave your pet at home alone in the evenings – so we’ve created an opportunity for our volunteers to help people in need and spend quality time with their pets. Our volunteers really appreciate this fun opportunity and it’s become very popular. The animals are very well-behaved and definitely get good exercise during the event.

Thank you to our event partners PAWS Adoption Center and Suite Paws Pet Resort. Paws for a Cause also welcomes support from media sponsors Kiss 107 and 700 WLW. Photography will be provided by Magic Moments Photography. PAWS Adoption Center will have adoptable dogs at the event. All socialized canine companions are welcome. Guidelines for pet participation include

  • 1 dog per adult participant (18 yrs and older).
  • Please keep dogs on a leash at all times while on Matthew 25: Ministries property.
  • Owners are responsible for cleaning up after pets.
