Community supports UPAWS in time of need

MARQUETTE COUNTY — UPAWS took in 40 cats, including many that were pregnant, from a residential location that was inspected by authorities.

The facility was quickly overwhelmed with animals that not only needed food, clean surroundings and water, but also medical attention.

UPAWS quickly asked for help from the community for donations if that was monetary or supplies.
The community responded quickly and went above and beyond.

“So the people who either sent us donations, dropped off things they had, went to local stores and looked for things to buy to help UPAWS out we truly cannot thank them enough,” said Kori Tossava, Executive Director.

The amount of money and donations raised was enough for all medical expenses and supplies for the animals. All of the cats are currently being over looked and treated at this time.

They will be unavailable for adoption until they have been all taken care of medically and by discretion of UPAWS.
