HELP PAW PARENT TO 

MEET AND SURPASS OUR $10,000 GOAL TO ADDRESS THE AFTERMATH of COVID-19!

 Paw Parent is back for The 2021 Strut Your Mutt campaign! There’s no denying that this year’s Strut Your Mutt is a special one. As we hope and pray Covid-19 will finally slip into the history books, we ask you to join me in helping the many needy animals its departure is leaving behind.

 Thanks to the generosity of outstanding donors like you, Paw Parent is happy to report we were able to continue our important work during this nation’s lost year. We placed almost 70 companion animals in 2020, including our first-ever Guinea Pig, and we were able to finish the year in the black! 

 Notwithstanding this success, we and all the shelters and other rescues are overflowing with unexpectedly high surrenders. We had worried that, as things began to reopen and people were returning to work and school, they might decide they no longer needed their new pets. 

 Thanks to our thorough screening practices prior to placing a pet, 100% of our rescues remain in their new homes.  But unfortunately the surrender of animals in general, as people return to work and socializing, is staggering. Shelters are experiencing steadily increasing intakes; and, as the surrenders mount, adoptions are stagnant. 

 The heartless rejection of pets now that people no longer need them for comfort and companionship, or find them inconvenient as things reopen, is overwhelming. Combined with the recent exodus of residents from California, leaving their furry friends behind, has resulted in an influx of abandoned and surrendered animals.

 We are bursting out of our seams and Paw Parent Needs Your Help More Than Ever Before!

 It is only through the generosity of our donors that we are able to continue to care for our charges, whether they are placed or not. We are determined to rescue as many needy animals as possible during these unprecedented times. Your past support has helped Paw Parent save lives and find loving homes for many deserving pets. 

 Please help us keep up the humane work of rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing desperate animals in need. We ask you to please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members. Your donation is tax deductible and each participating animal welfare organization keeps 100 percent of the money raised after transaction fees. And the best part? That money will help us care for the innocent victims who provided solace, and are now cast aside. 

 Paw Parent and our gang thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!

 Together, we can Save Them All.
