Passion for Paws looking for support


Dear friends,

I am Patsy Virgil Scherrer, the president of the Passion for Paws Memorial Animal Shelter located on 761 CR 483, Nixon, Texas and as you might have heard, we have moved to a new location. We are very proud to have raised funds to relocate and build a new metal building on a slab for the safe keeping of the rescued dogs the shelter takes in. However, we are still in the process of raising more money to complete the shelter complex.

We are asking for your generous help with donations.

The following is the whole list of projects yet to be funded:

  • Purchasing materials and the installation of kennels inside the building
  • Purchasing, constructing and installation of all necessary inside finishes such as insulation, non-porous surfaces, framing interior layouts, etc.
  • Electricity for new metal building
  • Purchasing and installation of a septic system

We kindly ask you for your invaluable support through a one-time donation to our animal shelter. Passion for Paws Memorial Animal Shelter Inc. is a 501(c)(3) recognized non-profit charitable organization under the Internal Revenue Service Code. This means that all donations to Passion for Paws Memorial Animal Shelter Inc. are fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

To donate you may send a check to Passion for Paws Memorial Animal Shelter, PO Box 175, Nixon, Texas 78140. Or if you have a PayPal account, you may donate through it using passionforpaws@yahoo.com for the required address.

We, Passion for Paws Memorial Animal Shelter, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping fund the new shelter. Let’s all work together to keep the stray dogs and puppies off the streets of Nixon, Smiley and the surrounding areas by funding the new shelter and to find each and every one of the dogs a safe and loving forever home.
