Paws and Claws hosts the following fundraising events each year and we present these on our website as their time comes near. Your support for these events enable us to care for over 1400 cats and dogs each year.

In the late spring and early summer

  • Garage Sale/Auction
  • Pet Walk

In the fall and winter

  • Fall Auction
  • Baby It’s Cold Outside Auction

All year long

  • Chewy: provides high quality pet products delivered to your door. Chewy also supports organizations like Paws and Claws. You can purchase items for yourself OR items from our Wish List that Chewy will deliver to Paw Paws and Claws
  • Ebay: As very special items are donated to Paws and Claws, we make them available on Ebay.

Due to Covid, our auctions are online, where you can view and bid on items from our website.

Also due to Covid, our Pet Walk is virtual in that you submit a picture of you walking your pet on Pet Walk Day and then contribute and/or sign others up to contribute.

Our website also hosts special events that local businesses create to raise money for Paws and Claws.


With donations from generous people like you, thousands of animals have a second chance at life! Make a difference in the life of an animal by donating today. Donations are tax deductible.
