Peace4Paws was founded in 2007. We were inspired by the Yogic "ahimsa" which means non-violence to all living things. We wish safety and peace to all living creatures.
Direct Care and Maintenance of Animals :
Through our foster - adoption program we provide food, medical, transport, toys and love to animals in need.
Our animals are retired research animals, shelter dogs or owner surrendered dogs. Initially we focused exclusively on research animals. When the labs are not releasing these animals, we work diligently to help those kill shelter and owner surrender dogs. The scope of our reach is dependant on available foster homes, as all our dogs are in foster homes.
We fundraise for sanctuaries which provide for the rehabilitation, homes or finding new homes for animals retired from work in research and related fields.
We offer kindergarten students all the way through senior citizens looking to be of service, the opportunity to learn about, care for and help the cause of animals.
We fundraise by accepting donations through our website www.peace4paws.org as well as by organizing various events such as yoga, music, animal, health, or art in order to raise the much needed funds for our programs.
