Paws Animal Rescue wants to remember and honor the life of Marilyn Tassler. Marilyn had Paws in her heart and left a portion of her estate to Paws Animal Rescue. She also asked that all memorials be directed to Paws.

We want to say THANK YOU Marilyn Tassler. Because of the kindness shown by Marilyn, we will be able to complete some of the many projects at Paws that better the lives of our homeless pets while they stay with us.
