Host a benefit event

More than 80 percent of PAWS' funding comes from charitable gifts from our friends in the community. Hosting a fundraising event can be a fun way to help the animals and get your friends, family and coworkers involved. Whether it's a party at your home, proceeds from a garage sale, a happy hour fundraiser, or any other type of event, we thank you for helping the animals!
