Emergency Care Fund

Cats and dogs in our care sometimes need extensive and expensive medical treatment due to sickness or injury. This fund helps provide medical care for life threatening conditions that may arise in any of our shelter animals, making it possible for us to save an animal’s life and to relieve pain and suffering. Please specify “Emergency Care Fund” on the memo line of your check or donate online through the button below.

Spay/Neuter Fund

This fund helps fight the problem of animal overpopulation by providing low cost spay and neuter procedures of cats and dogs sheltered at Paws and Claws. It also helps defray the spay and neuter cost for animals belonging to area residents who are unable pay. The MN SNAP Van provides these services at our shelter monthly. Please specify “Spay/Neuter Fund” on the memo line of your check or donate online through the button below.

Guardian Angel Program

Some animals that come to us take months to recover physically and emotionally from prior neglect or trauma. They require extra time to find a home compatible with their needs. The cost of this extra care, rehabilitation, or extended stays is often more than our budget allows. These animals deserve a second chance. The Guardian Angel program provides a way for you to contribute to the care and support of long term cats and dogs and to form a personal bond with our shelter animals. For just $10 a month, you can sponsor one of the many animals at our shelter. You will receive periodic pictures and information about your special animal. A new animal will be assigned to you when the one you are currently sponsoring is adopted. To join the Guardian Angel program, please fill out the Guardian Angel Enrollment Form.
