(September 2, 2021) – Phoenix, AZ. Charity Storage, the official charity of the self storage industry and official charity partner of the Self Storage Association (SSA), announced they will host a second Paws for a Cause event at the SSA 2021 Fall Conference & Trade Show in September.
Benefitting local non-profit Michael’s Angels Paws, the event will offer free pet therapy to self storage industry members in attendance at the Las Vegas show. On September 8th and 9th, Michael’s Angel Paws will provide a “puppy petting station” for show participants at the Charity Storage booth during exhibition hours. The booth will provide critical practice for therapy-dogs-in-training — volunteer teams of dogs and their handlers working to join over 250 active teams supporting the non-profit’s flagship Therapy Dog Program.
Paws for a Cause is sponsored by the Self Storage Association, Storable and OpenTech Alliance. Proceeds from the event will benefit both charities — 75% of funds raised will support Michael’s Angel Paws’ assistive and therapy dog programming, and 25% will be dedicated to Charity Storage and the nonprofits aided by the organization nationwide.
Established in Las Vegas nearly 10 years ago, Michael’s Angel Paws strives to serve the community with a dedication to H.O.P.E. — Helping Others Pawsitively Everyday. In addition to the Therapy Dog Program, which partners with local hospitals, schools and other front-line service providers, the organization provides Assistance Dogs to support children and adults with disabilities, and general dog training courses in the community.
Pet therapy provides significant benefits proven to positively impact physical, mental and emotional health. Interaction with a gentle, friendly pet can reduce blood pressure, release endorphins and diminish physical pain. Additionally, it’s shown to decrease depression, anxiety and boredom, increase socialization and sense of community and help children overcome speech and emotional disorders.
Attendees are invited to stop by Booth #255 to take a break with your new canine friends amid two days of nonstop show fun. Don’t miss your chance to de-stress and learn more about Michael’s Angel Paws and Charity Storage.
