Be a Guardian! Help PAWS pay off our Mortgage!

One of our Guardians has issued a matching challenge to help pay off our mortgage!

This wonderful donor has agreed to match individual donations, 1:1, up to $250,000.

We are so excited about this generous gift and how much this will mean for the animals of Paws and their predecessors!

If you'd like to join our Guardians Capital Campaign, just make your donation here and note that you'd like to participate in the matching challenge! 

Every dollar equals two! Be a Guardian and care for the animals along with us!
