Little PAWS Fund

In late spring and early summer, we are overwhelmed by litters of unwanted puppies and kittens. These abandoned babies place a tremendous strain on our already stretched resources. Their veterinary care is very costly with multiple rounds of booster shots, milk replacement formula, special food, antibiotics and spaying/neutering.

We can't help them without your help. Give to the Little PAWS Fund today and make a huge difference in the lives of these little paws.
