Ask Riley

Calling all kids!
If you have a question about animals or how you can help them, e-mail your question to Riley Raccoon at You can find more fun ways to help animals, online at

Riley was excited to get this recent e-mail all the way from Florida!

Hi Riley,
My name is Taylor, I'm 12 years old and I live in FL. I am an animal activist and a proud vegetarian. You seem to be very open about your love for animals. I would like to say that I am glad that more and more people are proud to care for and love animals of all kind. Thank you for caring for even the pigeons.
From, Taylor

Claire had the great idea of holding a dog biscuit bake sale and asked Riley for advice.

Dear Riley,
I really want to help in my community but I can't. I was thinking about making a dog biscuit bake sale but I don't know where. Please help me.
From, Claire

Hi Claire,
Thank you so much for your e-mail and for wanting to help animals! No matter what your age you can make a big difference for animals at PAWS and in your community. A dog biscuit bake sale is a great idea!

You can find instructions in the How to Help section of or the new PAWS Action Guide. You can get a free copy at the front counters of the PAWS Shelter, Wildlife Center or Cat City. I can also mail a copy to you. Just have your parent or guardian send me your address - remember to always ask their permission before giving out your personal information!
Kindly yours, Riley Raccoon

Thank you Taylor and Claire for being kind to animals!
