Donations to PAW

Of the money donated to PAW, the majority is spent on veterinary care and other costs that directly benefit the animals. Thanks to these donations, we are able to find permanent, loving homes for our animals. You can help by donating to pay for a spay, a rabies vaccination, or whatever you can afford. We have several dogs and cats receiving extensive treatment for various medical problems, in addition to the usual veterinary exams and medications that all our rescued animals receive. We rely on your donations to help us help them. Please consider sending us a donation today.

Donations may be mailed directly to PAW at P.O. Box 1074, Greenbelt, MD 20768. Please use our donation form and make out your check to P.A.W. or the Partnership for Animal Welfare.

Make a Lasting Impact


Thank you for considering PAW in your estate plans. By making a gift to PAW through your will, trust, or other financial plan, you can help now and in the future.


When you incorporate charitable giving in your estate planning, you gain personal satisfaction by knowing that you’re providing for the charities that matter most to you.


There are many different ways to plan for the future such as bequests, gifts of Life Insurance (making PAW the beneficiary of an insurance policy), gifts of  IRA Mandatory Distributions (which are taxable except when they are transferred directly to a non-profit as a gift), and many more.


Please consult your financial planner for the best option for you. And thank you for considering PAW to help take care of the animals of tomorrow.
