Who We Are
Meriden Rotary Club
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide. Rotarians provide humanitarian service across the world, and locally. They build goodwill and peace in the world. They put service above self.
Meriden Rotary Foundation is proud to coordinate and participate in many worthwhile projects in our community.
Saving Paws' mission is to aid homeless and neglected animals in Meriden and the state of Connecticut. They work to nurture, adopt, educate and support the animals in their care as well as the people and organizations that resue them.
Saving Paws, originally called the M.A.C. Pack, was founded in 2011. Initially it was a dedicated group of private citizens helping the pets in the Meriden pound get extra vet care and visibility, via Facebook and PetFinder, to promote adoptions. This successful group has flourished and recently reorganized as a 501 (c)(3) public charity under the new name Saving Paws.
Saving Paws has helped save and re-home close to 1,000 animals in just five years, and receives NO city, state or federal funding. All support is from donations.
