Paddy O'Paws Virtual Auction - March 25th

Conway, NH – The Conway Area Humane Society invites you to join one of our biggest annual events to help animals in need.

Year after year, our mission remains the same – we strive to save as many animals as our budget will allow. This work is made possible with the help of our community members and the beloved fundraising events we host, such as Paddy O’Paws.

Sponsored by Granite State Contract Furnishings! Please help us make this event fun and successful by attending our first ever Paddy O’Paws Live Virtual Auction! Join us on March 25th at 7pm for a live auction and tales from our shelter, including a heartwarming story about Seraphina, the fire kitty.
