According to the Humane Society of the United States, there are approximately 70 million stray cats and dogs living in the U.S. Only about six to eight million of these animals make their way into the country’s 3,500 shelters each year.
To help support Maine’s homeless animal population, Rockport Agent January Peavey has partnered with the P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center. P.A.W.S., located in Camden, provides care and shelter to stray cats and dogs until they can be placed in permanent, loving homes. The organization also promotes humane treatment of animals through outreach and educational programs within local communities. Additionally, they plan to expand their outreach to the elderly, and help ensure less animals have to be surrendered to shelters.
“Throughout February, for each person who calls my office for a quote request, I will donate up to $10 to P.A.W.S.,” said Peavey. “I’m extremely excited to support such a great organization and help our four-legged friends find their forever homes.”
This effort is in conjunction with the State Farm Quotes for Good program where agents choose a charity as the recipient of these donations. January and her staff will identify a different non-profit each month to receive donations.
“Quotes for Good is a great way for us and our neighbors to give back to the community,” said Peavey. “At the same time, I can also provide customers with a comprehensive understanding of their insurance needs and coverage.”
