• Changing lives
    one PAW at a time

    Here at the PAW Mission, our dream is to improve the lives
    of at-risk animals and people in underserved neighborhoods
    through humane education, foster programs, subsidized
    veterinary care, and community building.

    Together we can

Our Mission

The PAW Mission is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help decrease shelter euthanasia through affordable, accessible veterinary care, compassionate, innovative animal sheltering, and empathetic humane education.

The PAW Mission’s goal is to save the most at risk populations in animal shelters AND high risk groups of children, teens, and adults in underserved areas of San Bernardino County. Our mission is to provide a safe haven with activities, speakers, and educational opportunities to help community members and to aid aid animals in need by offering subsidized veterinary care, information on the different aspects of being a pet owner, and rescuing the most at risk dogs in shelters.

Our Events

Over 7,000 kittens too young to be adopted are euthanized in shelters every year in our area

Thanks to help from Best Friends as part of the NKLA initiative we are proud to welcome over 400 kittens into our nursery program this year. Our volunteers will bottle or hand feed these babies, provide proper socialization, and find them their forever homes. Interested in fostering or adopting a kitten or litter?

“We need, in a special way, to work twice as hard
to help people understand that the animals are
fellow creatures, that we must protect them
and love them as we love ourselves.” ― César Chávez
