Meet Ruby, who was rescued and revived through the power of your donations.

Ruby arrived at PAWS with crippling pelvic injuries. Through the power of donations Ruby was able to receive a life saving surgery and vital physical therapy, and is now thriving in her forever home. 

Donation Guide

Donations of any size make an impact on the daily lives of animals in need. Whether a monetary donation that finances emergency medical care or an Amazon donation of kitten formula, each contribution is key to helping a pet make it to their happily ever after.

PAWS gratefully accepts one time or recurring monetary donations via our donation form. Monetary donations fund medical care, behavioral training, adoption services, and provide essential supplies for maintaining PAWS and ACF operations. To see the impact each donation can make, follow our ‘Donate Now’ link.

PAWS relies on legacy giving to continue providing care to Coronado’s pets and to provide essential services to our community. Legacy donations can be provided by naming PAWS as the beneficiary on your investment accounts, life insurance policies or retirement plans, or by naming PAWS in your will or living trust. Donations are also accepted through charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and gifts of appreciated securities.
