As a Sustainer, you are assigned one of our homeless pets and receive a quarterly update about your animal's history, activity and training progress.
2PawsUp--$100 per month
In addition to an assigned pet, 2PawsUp sponsors will receive special perks such as discounts at the Paws4ever ReSale Store and complimentary tickets to Paws4ever events!
PawsPal--you choose the amount
Recurring gifts of any amount provide the consistent budget we depend on, allowing us to continue saving animals with confidence!
How to setup a Recurring Monthly Donation
When you make your donation, simply choose the amount you would like to contribute each month and select Monthly Recurring Donation. Your chosen donation amount will be automatically charged to your credit card each month and you will know your contribution is hard at work helping us save more lives.
When you make a donation, you can designate your gift to our General Fund, which supports our operations, or to the Med4Paws Fund, which helps us provide medications and veterinary treatment to the animals in our care. This includes preventative treatments such as heartworm prevention medication, veterinary exams and treatment for chronic conditions, aging issues, dental care and life threatening illnesses.
Local veterinarians provide discounted services to enable our fund to help as many animals as possible. Thank you for donating funds, time or services to Med4Paws so that we can continue providing ongoing medical care for the animals waiting for their forever homes.
Does a certain Paws4ever pet hold a special place in your heart? Would you like to help an overlooked pet get adopted? Consider contributing any amount as an Angel where your dollars will help reduce the adoption fee of one of our available pets. You may choose to have your gift go towards the adoption fee of a specific animal or allow us to use the gift for an animal most in need of adoption. If the animal you select already has their adoption fee covered, we'll simply apply it towards another pet in need. Adoption fees are $180 for dogs and $120 for cats.
