PAWS Candle Line Lights Up Your Lives & Theirs!

On Valentine’s Day weekend, PAWS Brave Hearts showcased its new line of high quality, clean burning, Maine made candles designed to light up lives – yours and the cats and dogs in their care! According to PAWS board member, Denise Cassidy, “Our product  line is top flight and it has wide appeal, with scents ranging from fruit to flowers and the Maine outdoors. Castine Candles is family owned and operated in Maine, their suppliers are all from the U.S. and they support social causes like ours.” 

Each candle is hand poured from the highest-grade paraffin wax and infused with natural and authentic fragrances, such as Beach Rose and Wild Lupine. The current line  of PAWS candles includes six fragrances available in an attractive 16-ounce jar for $18. 

The profit from each sale will directly support the animals who have joined the PAWS family while they are waiting to find their new, permanent homes. 

Not surprisingly, Cassidy noted that she and her husband Ken Brown were the first customers, “Ken chose the Beach Rose candle and we burned it for a few hours that evening. The entire house was filled with the light scent of roses!” The candle sales have already been brisk and, of course, PAWS cats – Flint and Pearl – greeted everyone who stopped by. If you missed the Tractor Supply event, you can purchase candles and meet the kitties at PAWS on Thursday, Friday or Saturday from 1-4 or at Eastport Pets during normal business hours.
