Christy WalkerPanhandle Animal Welfare Society, Inc receives contractual quarterly payments from the cities and Board of County Commissioners as noted below. The corporation should have already received these payments for the second quarter 2015 ending June 2015. The payments are to provide food for the animals at the shelter. Please explain why there is no food available for these animals. Cinco Bayou - $1700 Crestview - $21,250 Destin - $11,493 Mary Esther - $4,312.50 Niceville - $14,000 Okaloosa County - $119,995 Total 2nd Quarter 2015 Payments - $172,750.50 The public has the right to know that PAWS annually clears ~$800,000 in government funding in addition to ~$800,000 in public donations based upon the corporation's tax returns. I see no reason why this type of post would be made except to solicit public sympathy. Note that if this post is deleted I will contact the State of Florida Attorney General's Office. PAWS is a corporation that is subject to Florida Sunshine Laws as an agent of Okaloosa County that receives government funding.2   ·  1 day ago

Panhandle Animal Welfare SocietyI drive a 2006 Chrysler 300 and I have been with PAWS for 30 yrs and make under $57,000. I am more than willing to show how our money comes in and goes out. Donation numbers do not always mean money donated. If a large amount of pet food is donated, it is given a value by the auditors and it shows as a money figure on the audit. The same for services donated, like the people that painted the floors, and the attorney that helps with bequests. So its not all money coming in.8 hours ago

Christine DisneyChristy Walker I have been a part of this County for 33 years & experienced ALL the good PAWS & the hard working people have done there! Some years you spend more than others, common business practices! It sounds to me that because you are a part of the "No Kill Coalition" that you are trying to stir the sh** pot here! Bringing awareness to a subject is one thing, attacking an organization over a matter without all the facts is another! All of us animal lovers wish there was no NEED for kill shelter & you have NO idea apparently on what they go through on a daily bases! We have budgets in EVERY business & my late husband use to run a department at Eglin & the way it works is if you don't use it up they give you less the next year. Well, that next year you may have a Hurricane come through & then those items purchased on the slower years are much needed (such as horse/large animal trailers) etc. Take Dee up on the offer to view their books if you feel necessary or better yet go volunteer to clean kennels for a week there!1   ·  10 hours ago

Our beagle, Bo, got off her leash on Saturday night July 4. She pulled off her tether so hard it broke her tag information off. The collar she is wearing in pink and gray. She is a very shy dog and does not come to people easily. Last she was seen was running in the area behind Johnny O'Quigleys and the movie theater headed toward Airport Rd. We are incredibly worried about her and miss her terribly. Please if you have any information or have her in your possession we miss our little girl and want her back. She was my 7-year-old's Christmas present last year and a member of our family. Please call me at 850-635-5372 if you have any information on her.
