Hundreds of supporters attended this year's Paws for a Cause event, held at the Trussville Entertainment District. Live music (homegrown band "Dixie Krystal," a silent auction, and local musical entertainment highlighted the evening.

Thank you, Trussville, for making this the most successful Paws for a Cause ever!"

From a TCS Foundation standpoint, teachers will be able to apply this fall for grants up to $1,500.00 per classroom to be used for special projects and equipment that will benefit the students beyond the minimum requirements set by the state.
