Hops & Hounds is hosted by Paws and Claws Pet Care, Rochester’s top locally owned and operated pet care facility! We look forward to celebrating our second Annual Fundraising event made possible by YOU and your unwavering support & generosity.

Last year, we exceeded our goal by raising over $15,000! And this year, we are aiming to exceed last year’s amount raised with your help!

Why is your support more vital now more than ever?
There are approximately 40,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis and even more than 10 million Americans are unknowing, symptomless carriers of the CF gene. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, and friends who struggle every day just to breathe.

We fight with Paws and Claws staff team and owner Emily Bennett, for her two-year-old daughter Blakely, diagnosed with CF at birth. Thankfully Blakely is currently in good health, but we count our blessings with caution as CF is a progressive disease. There are many daily extra treatments & regimens, countless pills, and even hospitalizations.
Research indicates that starting treatment with modulators at a young age could help slow or even prevent the irreversible progression of cystic fibrosis, which is why Orkambi’s recent approval to start at just two years of age is great news for Blakely as well as other children.
The funds raised make it possible for these new medicines such as Orkambi to develop in effort to help exceed life expectancy for people with Cystic Fibrosis, and ultimately find a cure.
Supporters like you are the reason our shelters and humane societies are able to provide an increasing number of pets micro-chipped, spayed/ neutered, vaccinated, and provided veterinary care prior to adoption. In turn, more pets from these shelters can get adopted at an affordable low cost which in turn, makes room for others. Therefore, not only are you giving more animals a second chance, but the cost of your adoption goes directly towards helping the shelters in supplying care for the animals they take in!

If you’re a business owner or know of a business who would like to showcase their support, please consider helping reach our fundraising goal with a gift certificate, gift basket, corporate sponsorship, or other unique item donated to assist with our silent auction fundraising event
In return for your generous support, we’ll work with you to identify the best ways to introduce your company to our auction attendees and spotlight your amazing partnership. Furthermore, your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical & education programs, and is 100-percent tax deductible!
If your company would like to make a donation, simply fill the “Auction Donation Form” attached and please contact us using the information provided below. We’re excited for this potential partnership!
Thank you in advance for your support and participation in helping animals in need as well as helping forward our mission to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Your thoughtful contribution will make a great difference for these three amazing organizations, including two-year-old, Blakely Patricia Bennett.
