    Come hang out with Young Professionals of Akron and Rubber City Jews at Giant Eagle Market District in Cuyahoga Falls. Our two organizations have partnered together for a great cause, to help Paws and Prayers Pet Rescue in Cuyahoga Falls! The rescuers that formed Paws and Prayers sought to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home forgotten, neglected, or otherwise left-behind pets. One of the first of its kind, Paws and Prayers rescuers formed a foster-based rescue system in which every saved pet was cared for in the loving homes of the organization’s volunteers until the perfect adoptive home was find.

    This event is open to both members and non-members. Light appetizers will be provided. Instead of a registration fee, we ask that you bring something off the Paws and Prayers Wishlist! We will then make a giant donation to the organization with all of the items collected.
