Your Donation Goes a Long Way . . . Thank You for Your Generosity!


Paws Up 4 Rescue is 100% foster-based and NOT a government-funded organization.  We rely on the generous donations of the public for the daily needs required to maintain a healthy and beneficial environment for each of our rescues.  We also rely on local businesses and/or individuals to participate in our Sponsorship program.  What is important to note is that everyone in the organization works as a Volunteer, which means that 98% of your funds go back to the Rescue Animals and the remaining 2% is used to maintain the business needs (i.e., website, social media, vehicle transport, license, stickers, tax filings, etc.)

For those of you who would like to donate items, below is a list of what is always needed and welcomed:

  • Used, Clean Bed Sheets, Towels, and Blankets

  • Puppy Pads and Garbage Bags

  • Dog Crates, Gates and Puppy Pens

  • Dog Beds, Water and Feeding Bowls

  • Dog Collars and Leashes
