Pins for Paws - August 2019
About Pins for Paws:
Pins for Paws is a community driven bowling fundraiser created by Desert Diva Dogs to assist animal rescues with veterinary care expenses and to raise awareness for responsible pet ownership. Each Pins for Paws event features a different “rescue of the month,” selected in a random drawing of animal rescues enrolled in the Desert Diva Dogs Rescue Partner Program.
The goal of Pins for Paws bowling events is to raise as much money as possible through sponsorship's and donations to make a large impact on the rescue’s medical bills so they can continue their focus on saving precious lives. Proceeds from each monthly event are sent directly to the designated rescue’s veterinarian to help pay their outstanding balance and/or develop a credit account toward future medical bills.
Pins for Paws offers an evening of bowling and fun while supporting animal rescues. Participants can look forward to bowling contest prizes, goody bags, and great silent auction and raffle prizes. Each Bowler ticket includes three hours of bowling (from 6-9 PM), shoe rental, a slice of pizza, a soft drink, and one raffle ticket. Non-bowler ticket sales are also available, which include a slice of pizza, soft drink, and one raffle ticket.

Where: The Orleans Hotel & Casino - Bowling Center
4500 W Tropicana Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89103
Why This Cause is Important:
A leading concern for animal rescues is the costly bills associated with medical expenses to save these precious lives. The average medical bill for one rescue dog is $500. Dogs with complex medical issues can easily exceed $2,500.
Proceeds from Pins for Paws events support many rescues working to help animal lives in need of medical care. Proceeds from ticket sales, donations, and sponsorship's at each event make a great impact for the benefiting rescue of the month.
Event proceeds are paid to the benefiting rescue’s veterinary clinic and applied toward their medical bills. Rescues that do not have an outstanding balance can still benefit from Pins for Paws. An account in the rescue’s name will be set up at their veterinary clinic to use as needed for medical expenses.
We believe that with the involvement and support of our community we can all help our rescues save more lives!
