Rockport, Me., Tuesday, May 6, 2014— Monday, May 5 and Tuesday, May 6 folks throughout the midcoast hung up their aprons to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner out to celebrate the 3rd annual Cinco de Meow.
Eleven area restaurants served up a creative selection of dishes to take part in the annual fundraiser for P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center. Specials included Mexi Shepard’s Pie at Cappy’s Chowder House and Sautéed Gulf Shrimp Quesadillas at Fog Bar & Café.
Each participating restaurant made a generous donation to help care for pets awaiting adoption at P.A.W.S.’ Camden Street, Rockport, location. P.A.W.S. thanks the following restaurants and their patrons for their kind support.

Donations play a vital role in the adoption center’s efforts to house, feed, and find loving homes for the region’s homeless animals. In recent years, P.A.W.S.’ service area has expanded beyond Camden and Rockport to include Lincolnville, Northport, Islesboro, Searsmont, Liberty, and Swanville as well. That means more animals to care for—and ever-mounting costs.
In 2013, P.A.W.S.’ expenses on behalf of animals topped $329,000. Some 44 dogs cared for by the center found a new “leash” on life through adoption as did 302 cats and kittens, as compared to 33 dogs and 274 felines in 2012.
