HOW YOU CAN HELP
Pause4Paws welcomes people and animal-loving volunteers. There are lots of ways to help. Pet fostering is an obvious need but we also need help transporting pets, assisting with fundraisers, collecting pet supplies and spreading the word about the Pause4Paws foster program. We also need help from pet care providers who can donate their time and skill.
