How to Help
Your donation directly benefits animals in need.
Paws for Hope works hard to make sure that your donations make a direct impact on animals in need. And there are many ways that you can contribute to the important, life-saving work that Paws for Hope is doing but regular, ongoing contributions from donors make sure that our various programs and initiatives are sustainable and well-resourced year-round.
In addition to donating, you can also organize your own fundraising event in support of Paws for Hope, become a member of our organization, or apply to become a Paws for Hope volunteer. There are lots of ways you can help support BC pets and their people!
