IMG 0218Last Saturday we held our annual summer get together to express our appreciation for the Volunteers, Sponsors and their families for all the work they put in, to keep our organisation running smoothly.

Once again at the Marsa Sports Club, we thank Angelo and Keith for an excellent barbeque and Vince Mifsud for the music. He managed to get most of us on the dance floor!!


Our Happy Paws Charity shop in St.Venera/Hamrun is asking for your help.

IMG 0179 mini

We have a surplus of donations, that have been on display in the shop but haven't been sold, and are far to good to be recycled.
We try to change the stock on the rails continuously to accommodate our daily returning customers.
Therefore we have made 'POT LUCK' blue bags, filled with all items in very good condition, which we will sell for 5 euro each.
You may find clothing for the summer season, but also for the coming one, as well as bags, shoes, jewellery, ornaments, toys ect, ect. 
This may be your opportunity to make some extra cash by selling them on, if not usable to you. Or help a neighbour in need, or pass on to your family.
Whatever use you find for the contents of these bags, be sure that YOU have helped Happy Paws Organisation in assuring the continuation of our clinic in Marsa, and have been instrumental in lightening the load on our environment

After 14 years of voluntary dedication towards the people who look after the stray population, and the strays themselves, the committee of Happy Paws Charity Organisation has decided to scale down the activities of the Organisation.

This means that the Happy Paws Animal Clinic in Marsa , in a couple of months will close down and will cease to be available for free neutering/spaying, and for general medical care of the strays.

We are looking for interested parties to take over the fully equipped Veterinary Clinic, and ask these parties to convey their interest before the 31st of May 2017 to:

Luckily she has an owner who is taking care of her with our help. Held here by Volunteer Katherine.

Their mission statement:

"Continuous customer satisfaction is our achievement"

And Happy Paws can vouch for this. We needed help with a small part of our anaesthetic machine, that had been totally deformed by transport.Within ONE day it was resolved. What a wonderful service from a warm, helpful family business.

We are proud to call them sponsors of Happy Paws.

A new entity will take over the running of the organisation and the management of the Clinic.

Happy Paws Animal Clinic in Marsa, will carry on their business as usual, regarding free neutering/spaying, the general medical care of the strays, the support for the sanctuaries, the obligations towards the dog and cat Adoption scheme, Pink card and Star fund.

Happy Paws Team Cards will be available again from June 1, 2017. Existing Team Card holders are welcome to renew their expired cards for one year.

As from Monday May 29, 2017, Gareth and Sarah, our receptionists, will be taking appointments for neutering/spaying.
