Paws for a Cause
The Sweet 16th Annual Charity Night & Silent Auction

The 16th Annual Paws for a Cause Charity Night & Silent Auction will be held on Thursday, October 20, 2022 from 5:30-8:30PM at Waverly Brewing Company. This event will benefit the Ronnie Stanley Foundation.

Although we’re calling this our Sweet 16th, this year’s event is bittersweet. We’re very excited to be hosting the event again and for 16 years of giving back to local animal organizations. We’re also very sad because this is our first year without Fenway, the dog who started it all, and Roxy, the sweetest dog we’ve known.

The Ronnie Stanley Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for rescue dogs and individuals in need. The foundation trains and cultivates the therapeutic properties of rescue dogs to be matched with individuals who have faced various life challenges such as illness, emotional trauma, and/or other hardships. These matches are even more meaningful because rescue dogs are placed in their forever homes.

Paws for a Cause also gives back annually to the Hope Fund of Furry Friends Network, Inc as a token of appreciation for bringing Fenway into the lives of founders Woody and Heidi Derricks. If it wasn’t for their experience with Furry Friends Network, Paws for a Cause wouldn’t exist.

The Hope Fund is used to help cover the costs of treating animals with severe injuries, illness, and/or in need of major surgeries.

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s event.

Thank you for your continued support!

Become a Recipient

As we all know, companion animals are still being turned over to shelters and rescue groups at alarming rates. We also know that rescue organizations rely heavily on the support and monetary donations of the community. We want to help! Each year, we hold a fundraiser to benefit one or two local animal welfare groups. No animal welfare group is too small to apply! Over the past 15 years, we’ve raised more than $100,000!

Our approach at the event is to find projects that local animal organizations need funded. We believe that having a monetary goal tied to a specific project helps loosen the wallets of those in attendance. For those interested, please download the application form, and email it to us at

In return, we ask that the group(s) selected help raise awareness of our event within their network of supporters and that they send a representative to the event. We will notify the group(s) if we are in need of a volunteer or two to assist before or during the event.
