A Bit About PAWS San Diego...

PAWS San Diego is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to preserve the human-animal bond by providing essential pet services to low-income seniors, disabled, and chronically ill individuals. With only four part-time staff, PAWS is an extremely lean organization; however, that does not stop us from making a big impact. Through its two programs, PAWS serves thousands of pet families each year, in turn preventing animals from being relinquished to our already overcrowded San Diego shelters. Through PAWS’ Pet Care & Vet Care Program, clients receive in-home delivery of pet food, cat litter, flea medication, and other necessary supplies. Transportation to veterinary appointments as well as dog walking services are provided for clients who are home bound. PAWS is also able to offer funds for veterinary care as they are available in order to assist with medical emergencies. PAWS was able to expand its services to launch a secondary program, the PAWS Pantry. This program was developed in response to a common and desperate need for pet food across the county. Supplemental bags of dog food and cat food are available for pick up at the PAWS office each month. In addition, PAWS San Diego distributes food to local rescues to help ensure that these vulnerable animals do not go hungry.
