We ask that each approved applicant helps to fundraise for their dog or cat's care by sharing the fundraising page that Paws 4 A Cure creates to bring in much needed funds so that we can continue to help those in need. If the applicant does not provide the requirements for the fundraising page to be created, Paws 4 A Cure is unable to fundraise for the applicant’s dog or cat. Therefore, no payment will be released and the applicant will be responsible for the charges. We do make exceptions, especially for domestic violence situations.
