The Paws for Love Foundation provides a vital safety net for shelter and rescue animals in need of assistance in finding a permanent home - whether it be an injured homeless pet who requires a lifesaving surgery, reimbursement of adoption fees for seniors, or other rescue-related expenses. Many of these pets would perish without the funding we provide. They come to us frightened, traumatized, and homeless through no fault of their own – and we believe each one deserves a second chance. We give them hope.

One of Wine Country’s favorite winter charity events, the annual "Paws for Love" Gala benefits the animals of Sonoma County and the Western States. Our February Valentine-themed gala, featuring artwork painted by talented shelter animals, silent and live auctions, and award-winning wines is only one of our fundraising efforts – throughout the year we participate in smaller events and with your support we can do even more: fund more surgeries, expand our senior-to-senior "Silver Paws for Love" adoption program, and save the lives of more pets!

For more information about our annual event, check out our PAWS FOR LOVE NEWSLETTER which is now available online.

The Paws for Love Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization and depends upon your tax deductible donations to enable us to accomplish our mission of helping homeless pets in need.. Before making a donation, please view the Paws for Love Foundation's PRIVACY STATEMENT
