MidSouth Bank’s “Let’s Pawty” offered a donation opportunity as well as adoption event on behalf of the Panhandle Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) on June 7 in the bank’s parking lot on Beal in Fort Walton Beach.

Branch Manager/Retail Loan Officer Lynn Fehr and her co-workers invited the public to a cookout at their 768 Beal Parkway NW location in Fort Walton Beach where Fehr showed her grilling prowess while attendees interacted with adoptable dogs and cats. One lucky pup named Buck was the first to be adopted.

A private, nonprofit organization, PAWS is dedicated to the welfare of animals by providing the resources, education, and programs needed to improve animal welfare. While “Buck” was quickly adopted, the organization reports there are still many animals needing loving homes and care.

Tracey Kinsley, Community Development/HR Director for PAWS, said, “We had a very successful event. With two dogs getting adopted and finding their forever homes and one went on a weekend sleepover. We also received monetary donations as well as many items from our wish list. MidSouth Bank supports PAWS’ mission and is a great partner. They plan to host another event in November.”

Numerous smiling community members were in attendance to learn about the animals as well as interact with them. Many showed up with donations in hand to contribute to the animals’ well-being. Congressional Representative Matt Gaetz also had a big smile while cuddling with a 14-week-old pup named Green.

Located at 752 Lovejoy Road NW in Fort Walton Beach, PAWS invites everyone to visit their shelter to meet and interact with the animals. The organization shares pictures and details online about their adoptees so you can learn about the available animals.

Kinsley added, “We are always in need of dog/puppy food, both wet and dry, and cat/kitten food, also wet and dry, along with towels, blankets, sheets, and comforters.”

Donations may be made in the form of checks, cash, or in-kind gifts may be mailed or delivered to them. The shelter is open Monday through Wednesday as well as Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with Thursday open from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.

MidSouth Bank diligently work to meet its customers’ needs as well as a stauch supported of our community. Located at 768 Beal Parkway NW in Fort Walton Beach, they can also be reached by calling (850) 586-7757 or via email from their website.
