Public TV13 Partner Premium Shares Help UPAWS Too!
Public TV13 is the only PBS member station that offers Partner Premium Shares. These shares are coupons that you can collect and redeem for valuable benefits, and are valid for one year from the date of your gift. As an alternative to choosing a thank-you gift at the time of your pledge or contribution, you can receive one Partner Premium Share for every $10 that you donate. You may find, as many partners have, that Partner Premium Shares are a great way to give twice to the community. You'll help broadcast quality programs and, at the same time, support the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter.
The UPAWS, with help from Public TV13 viewers, have collected enough Partner Premium Shares to get items such as electronics and televisions which, in turn, can be used as prizes for our fundraisers. Make your pledge and support Public TV13 and the UPAWS today!

Kuranda Dog & Cat bed Program
We have chosen Kuranda dog beds and pads for our animal shelter because they are so good for our dogs. The dogs would like a warm bed while they are waiting for their forever home. The floors here at the shelter are hard and a Kuranda bed and pads would enable the dogs to have a soft, elevated bed to lie on during long nights.
We have had great success with the Kuranda program with almost all of the kennels receiving donated dog beds. Thank you to everyone who has donated a Kuranda dog bed &/or fleece pad. Thanks to you and the Kuranda dog bed company, our shelter dogs are much cozier and comfy…the dogs LOVE them!
||We have chosen Kuranda dog beds for our animal shelter because they are so good for our dogs. We are in need of size large beds. If you would like to donate a bed so another dog can sleep in proper comfort, please click here.
Our cats love to sleep on Kuranda cat beds, but we don't have enough for everyone. If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for a another cat to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda cat bed.

Snuggles Project - a special project of Hugs for Homeless Animals
The Snuggles Project is a special project of Hugs for Homeless Animals, a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization dedicated to homeless and displaced animals.
The Snuggles Project was founded by their president and founder, Rae French, in 1996 because of her heartfelt need to do something for the innocent victims who find themselves in animal shelters without a bit of comfort to call their own. Picturing them in their hard cold cells made her heart ache to do something to help. So she got the idea of security blankets for shelter animals. The security blankets are called "Snuggles." Each animal would get a Snuggle to cuddle up with to feel warmth and comfort. Most shelter animals are kept in areas with stainless steel braces and hard plastic flooring or even bare concrete floors. The Snuggles would allow them to have a little reprieve from the coldness of the pen they are kept in.
The Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter is a participating shelter of the Snuggles Project. Snuggles for our homeless cats are needed. To learn more about this program & how to help our cats be snugly, please visit their website at http://www.h4ha.org/snuggles
