Donate To PAWS

Monetary Donations

The needs of wildlife never stop, no matter what season it is! PAWS is 100% volunteer-based and has no paid staff, so ALL donated funds go directly to animal care. Our status as an IRS-recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization also means that all donations are tax-deductible. For more information on why we’re the best bang for your philanthropic buck, check out our reviews & rating as a 2012 – 2023 “Top Nonprofit” by View our community testimonials.   Verify who we are at

One time donations are incredibly helpful, no matter the amount.  But please consider a monthly donation to allow  us the stability to plan for our expenses in a less stressful manner.

Community Support - Surrendered Animals

This is why we so frequently ask for community support. This is why we hope for a donation with a surrendered animal (even $20 helps!). We would love to be able to show you successes for every dollar you send in — and we DO have many successes, as evidenced by our release photos and videos — but our care is rooted in the belief that every animal deserves help whether it has the hoped for outcome or whether they are here for us to help end the suffering. Rest assured that we stretch every donated dollar to its limit. We deeply appreciate the support, financial and otherwise, with which the community continues to bless us. Together we can make a  difference!

Non Monetary Donations
