PAW Team is funded through donations from individuals, local businesses and grants.
Every dollar makes a difference to a pet in need.
Your gift goes directly to where it can have an immediate impact.
PAW Team is unique - we help both animals and people. By providing vaccines and licensing, we enable people to get off the streets and into transitional housing. By providing basic medical care we keep people and pets together during the most difficult times of their lives.
We maximize every dollar - we don't have a fancy building (it doesn't even have heat). We are supported by hundreds of volunteers who give of their time and talent to help us help hundreds of pets who need it the most.
Because of this, a $25 cash gift leverages $250 in goods and services for a homeless person or family for their beloved companion pet. That's ten to one. Your gift to the PAW Team goes further, and to those who are in the greatest need in our community.

Your gift helps people, too!
Did you know the cost of an average vet visit for a dog is $231, and for a cat it's $193? When pets required surgical care, those yearly vet bills increased to $621 for dog and $382 for cat owners. Our services are free to those in true need. Providing vet services keeps families together and lets them put the limited financial resources they have toward vital needs such as rent, utilities, and food.
