Ryan has started work on his new project PEZ for PAWS. Inspired yet again by the generosity and willingness to help the animals of Austin, Texas, he started a monthly meet up for all the PEZ collectors in Austin. During these monthly meet ups (sometimes more than once a month), Ryan and his fellow PEZheads from Austin and the surrounding towns eat, drink, talk PEZ and brainstorm on how to help out Austin Pets Alive! in other ways. His goal is to establish PEZ meet ups in San Antonio, Dallas, Houston and anywhere else in Texas that will support it, and plans to help out the local animal shelters in those cities too.
PEZ for PAWS, is in it's second year, and has the animals of Texas in mind. Our plans are to focus on bringing PEZ collectors together to help shelter and homeless animals find forever homes, inspire other cities governments to go 'no-kill' and to build fenced in dog parks, with water fountains and waste stations throughout Texas.
To date ATX PEZ Collectors and PEZ for PAWS has raised $6,400 for Austin Pets Alive! since 2015!!
