Tail-Waggin' Takeout was created as a social-distancing alternative to our largest fundraiser, Picasso Pets, which was cancelled out of abundance of caution due to COVID-19. The funds raised at this event will help Hand in Paw provide virtual care and connection to those in need, as well as help us prepare to visit a world that will have a heightened need for our unique services.
