Shane Catlett, a managing partner with Modern Woodmen, presented $2,000 to Judy Butterfield for her A Paw and a Prayer organization which rescues dogs. 

Modern Woodmen specializes in life insurance and investment products but is also a fraternal company that gives back to local community organizations and citizens in many different ways. As they grow members, they earn chapters. Each chapter allows different projects each year, from Good Neighbor projects, where they build wheelchair ramps for those in need to the Matching Fund projects as they did with Mrs. Butterfield with A Paw And A Prayer.  

This Matching Fund project consisted of sponsors for T-shirts and a T-shirt sell.  The Modern Woodmen promised to match $1,000 raised in the event and they were able to reach the goal. 

Mrs. Butterfield is a retired nurse that runs a rescue with the help of a few volunteers out of her home.  She adopts from kill shelters and will take in abandoned or unwanted dogs. She has them fully vetted and takes them to Petsmart/Petco each weekend along with social media advertising to find loving homes for each of them.  Her Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/JGBButterfield.
