Paws Recipients


Meet our Paws Recipients that need your help

Imagine not being able to pay for your dog or cat's urgent veterinary care because you had no money or not enough money. Now imagine applying for assistance only to find out that there are not enough funds to help. Your tax deductible donations are so important to the families in need of Paws 4 A Cure's assistance for their furry family member's veterinary care. 

For the safety and privacy of our applicants that are in domestic violence situations, we do not create profiles. In some instances, with the approved applicant's agreement, we changed the names and locations of the dogs or cats so that a fundraising page can be created. 
** Click on the Facebook Fundraiser button next to the Paws Recipient's name to read their story and to make a tax deductible donation to help with their veterinary care. Or to make a general donation, or to pay online or by mail, please click the Sponsor Me button**
