Paw Palooza Cape Cod kicked off it’s first year of raising money and awareness of animal welfare on the Cape back in 2016. The start of an awesome fundraiser that supports both the Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) Brewster shelter and the MSPCA of Cape Cod. To date both organizations have benefited from the over $110,000 Paw Palooza has raised the last 3 years!
So what exactly is this money going towards? Both the MSPCA and ARL receive most of their funding from donations and fundraisers such as Paw Palooza. This money typically goes towards the “daily operations” such as feeding and providing shelter to the animals, having the funding to address any medical issues the animals might have, and maintaining clean and healthy environments for the animals.
The ARL, located at 3981 Main St, Brewster, MA 0263, has been on the Cape since 1921. Not only does the ARL shelter household pets such as dogs,cats, and small animals.They also have a selection to shelter livestock like pigs and chickens that need homes as well. The ARL is always looking for volunteers and has expressed how crucial it is that each animal receives one-on-one time before going to their forever homes.

The MSPCA just opened a new facility last spring in Centerville at 1577 Falmouth Road. This facility, and many other resources, were made possible with the help of the Paw Palooza donation! The MSPCA of Cape Cod now offers services like low cost spay and neutering, behavior training, educational classes on caring for your furry and feathered friends, and much more.
