Mission of the Pad for Paws Foundation
Our motto says it all – “Keeping Pets and Their People Together”. The Pad For Paws Foundation assists our area’s most vulnerable residents – senior citizens, those with service animals, physically and mentally challenged, veterans – pet owners who are having a hard time in this economy, and cannot afford to feed both themselves and their pets.
For most pet owners, their dog or cat is more than a pet – they are faithful companions who provide friendship, joy and sometimes even a reason for living. Many of these pets are the only “family” our clients have. Our Foundation provides pet food and supplies, and emergency veterinary care to those in need.
The Pad For Paws Foundation is 100% volunteer and we have no paid employees.
