We’ve updated our Pawesome new logo!

Play 4 PawZ 2018 LogoEverything gets an update, even logos, but at least you didn’t have to sit and watch a bar go across the screen for this one!

Why? We felt that it needed a slight nod to the core of what we do, play games to help save precious lives, so we have re-introduced our original strapline and added a game controller into the mix.

The original challenge was to produce a new look that was cuter, eye-catching, colourful and generally more fun, we also wanted it to sit alongside our current beneficiaries First Coast No More Homeless Pets and The Animal House Rescue.

We think you’ll agree with us that this gives the original logo added value and also explains more about what we are in words and pictures.

You’ll see the updated logo rolling out across our channels soon and of course on all the new promotional material for our 2019 event.

We’re still looking for names for the dog and cat, so let us know your ideas and thoughts!

Play 4 PawZ Update

PawZ-is-5Hi Everyone

Firstly sorry its been a while since we got in touch with you all, usually about this time of year we are holding our annual Play 4 PawZ event so we wanted to reach out and keep everyone up to date with what is going on.

This year has been a tricky one for us for various reasons and as a team we didn’t feel we had the time to devote to PawZ 2018 offering the quality that you are used to and deserve so we decided to take a year out to work on a rebranding and look at new streaming methods which would enhance the viewing and donating process.

We are working hard behind the scenes and are now planning our PawZ 2019 event, contacting sponsors and working out a fun schedule of events for you all.

In the meantime the charity work of our beneficiaries continues so please feel free to support them using the following buttons.

First Coast No More Homeless Pets
Located in Jacksonville Florida USA. FCNMHP has several programs that save lives, helps keeps furries with their families and has reduced the euthanasia rate in Jacksonville. Their efforts have recently made Jacksonville Florida a No Kill community meaning 90% of the animals that come into the cities shelters come out ALIVE. You can visit their website here to learn more.

The Animal House Rescue
Located in Birmingham, UK. They hold some of the same standards as First Coast No More Homeless Pets. What sets them apart from other rescue groups is that they do not have a shelter. Instead every animal they help is placed into a foster home. This makes sure every animal is ready for a new home and family. They also have a feral cat-neutering program very similar to the program First Coast has. You can visit their website here to learn more.

Play 4 PawZ :: Hurricane Irma Appeal

We’re just a few hours away from our Play 4 PawZ :: Hurricane Irma Appeal event supporting First Coast No More Homeless Pets.

Whilst Hurricane Harvey was devastating Houston, a second hurricane named Irma was born in the Eastern Atlantic. Irma, meaning war Goddess, decemated the French territories, Cuba, the British Virgin Islands, US Virgin Islands, Anguilla, St. Maarten, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Barbuda but still had enough fuel in the tank to rip up Florida before marching on into Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama and Tennesse. Irma earned her title as the strongest hurricane ever recorded. This hurricane has taken everything from some including pets from families.

Our primary beneficiary, First Coast No More Homeless Pets is in Jacksonville Florida. First Coast and it’s partners work with their community and shelters in Jacksonville which has made Jacksonville a NO KILL community meaning 90% of the animals that enter the city shelters leave the shelters alive.

Now they need our help more than ever.

First Coast’s Norwood Avenue Clinic has been damaged and is closed until repairs can be made to reopen. In the wake Hurricane Irma First Coast is still helping shelters who also have suffered damage in the region as they work to get their own Norwood Avenue Clinic up and running.

In order to help with the costs associated with the effects of Irma we will be having a charity stream with all donations going to First Coast No More Homeless Pets. Florida pets and their families are in great need and together we can help save precious lives.

The charity stream will take place on September 29 from 6PM – 12AM CST and September 30 12PM – 6PM CST. This event will be livestreamed on Twitch and Mixer. We will be playing Rocket League, Destiny 2, Fortnite Battle Royale, Dead by Daylight and Cuphead. (Games may be subject to change).

Elgato Gaming has donated 2 Elgato HD60 S capture cards. A $50 donation will get the donator into a raffle for 1. For every $50 you donate you will get one entry.  All donations will go straight to First Coast No More Homeless Pets to help with the effects of hurricane Irma.

Irma, meaning war Goddess (and oh boy was she) decemated the French territories, Cuba, the British Virgin Islands, US Virgin Islands, Anguilla, St. Maarten, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Barbuda but still had enough fuel in the tank to rip up Florida before marching on into Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama and Tennesse. Irma earned her title as the strongest hurricane ever recorded. This hurricane has taken everything from some including pets from families…. It’s caused destruction in one form or another everywhere it’s gone.

First Coast No More Homeless Pets is in Jacksonville Florida. In case you are unaware let me Bring you up to speed… First Coast No More Homeless Pets is the U.S. org we support every year. First Coast and it’s partners work with their community and shelters in Jacksonville which has made Jacksonville a NO KILL community meaning 90% of the animals that enter the city shelters leave the shelters alive.

Now they need our help more than ever.

First Coast’s Norwood Avenue Clinic has been damaged and is closed until repairs can be made to reopen. In the wake of the historic flooding in the region First Coast is still helping shelters who also have suffered damage in the region even as they work to get their Norwood Avenue Clinic up and running.

In order to help with the costs associated with the effects of Irma we will be having a charity stream with all donations going to First Coast No More Homeless Pets. Florida pets and their families are in great need and together we can help save precious lives.

Play 4 PawZ 2017 Prize Raffle Livestream. Important Date Change Please Read!

06 Play 4 PawZ 2017 Sunday Sessions Prize Stream v2

PLEASE NOTE, NEW DATE:
Sunday 4th June 2017 :: 4pm PDT :: 6pm CDT :: 7pm EDT :: 5th June :: 12am BST
worldtimebuddy.com

Hi Everyone, thank you so much for all your donations to this years Play 4 PawZ 2017 event supporting First Coast No More Homeless Pets (US) and The Animal House Rescue (UK).

Firstly, let me reassure everyone that the donations you have made via PayPal are safe and accounted for, every donation goes straight into the account of the beneficiary, we handle no transactions here at PawZ.

As you may be aware from watching the livestream, we were having a few problems with Streamlabs, the notification service used to keep track of our donators. This was a technical problem on Streamlabs side and nothing we could do to prevent. We have been in contact with them and they have assured us that the problem is now being resolved.

What does this mean?
During the livestream, people were donating and their names were not being refreshed along the  bottom of the screen, obviously those people contacted us and we were able to run some tests ourselves during the event and there was indeed a problem.

We now believe we have a full list of everyone that donated, however to be safe we are postponing the Prize Draw for a week to give any notifications that may still be stuck in the system time to come through and allow us to cross check with the beneficiaries that the amounts tally.

Let me please stress that the donations you have made are safe and the beneficiaries have your donations, this is simply an issue with the notification system and not in any way connected with payments.

If you have any concerns or would just like a bit of peace of mind that your donation has been counted towards the raffle please send us a photograph or copy of your PayPal confirmation email to play4pawz@gmail.com. Please do not send us any personal information for your PayPal account, ensure that anything you send has this information omitted.

We are sorry for any inconvenience the new date causes, if you cannot make the livestream you will be notified via the contact email associated with your payment should you win anything. We will also provide a full list of the winners on here.

Thank you and kind regards, Malcs
(on behalf of the Play4PawZ team)
