Cause for Paws Cable Programs

Scheduled @9:30am Channels 11 (Verizon)  and Channel 77 (Comcast).

Meet Coco. Coco is the sweetest little boy.  As you can see he's very friendly and loves attention. He comes from a home that had another cat. The other cat was aggressive very aggressive I mean really aggressive toward this baby.  So much so that it caused little sweet Cocoa to have physical issues. Animal medical center of Watkins Park and Dr Sue Maturo took Coco in, took care of his medical issues and brought him back to a very very healthy state. We are now looking for a foster home for Cocoa until he finds a permanent home or someone who is interested   in adopting him.  It will need to be the right home where he is going to be the only pet . He is a very sensitive delicate sweetheart and he does not need any more aggression from any other animal. If you are interested in this sweetheart either fostering or visiting him for a possible adoption, please contact Animal medical center of Watkins Park or myself Connie Carter we will be happy to let you meet him and discuss the possibility of fostering or adoption. Thank you so much for your consideration. Anybody who adopts this baby is going to be so happy and will have a life full of happiness and a great companion.

Community Cats

     Community cats are free-roaming cats seen in communities nationwide. These cats are stray, lost or abandoned. Some may be friendly, though many are unsocialized, feral and cannot be adopted.
     The City of Bowie adopted Resolution R-70-14 on November 17th, 2014 endorsing TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) as the best non-lethal program for resolving community cat issues. The City supports the efforts of local participants performing TNR toward reducing the community cat population.

We sometimes have to rescue a single kitty from a litter because of special circumstances.  This is one of the recent rescues, Beauty.  She requires a lot of dedication to ensure her survival and eventual adoption into a forever home.

About Bowie
Bowie, the city, was originally called Huntington City. In 1880, the Maryland legislature changed the name to Bowie in honor of Oden Bowie who was the president of the Baltimore & Potomac Railroad.


We interact and work with the City of Bowie Animal Control, Prince George's Animal Management, veterinarians and animal hospitals, animal adoption and shelter centers, and local residents for animal wellness, protection, rescue, and adoption. We are staffed by caring community volunteers. We trap, transport, educate, present, advise, screen, investigate, report, protect, adopt, represent, advocate, rescue  and much more.


  • The cost to taxpayers is staggering.  By helping us, the taxpayer burden is reduced.
  • Education on community animals is virtually non-existent. Our education and outreach programs impact many lives - both animal and human.
  • Seniors, families with reduced and little income, neighbors and friends, are surprisingly not aware of  help close-by or feel shame in asking.  Our assistance is deeply passionate and far reaching.

We need volunteers and we need donations. Either or both are appreciated.  Donations can be goods or money.
