Make a Donation to Our Animal Rescue

Each year, we set out to raise funds that allow us to provide the best possible care and support to the animals in our rescue, while also expanding our resources and improving our facilities to help even more animals in need. Our mission is simple but profound: to Save animals from a life of abuse, neglect and death in kill shelters and commercial breeding facilities, and find homes for them with loving humans that will add value to their lives.

Where do donations go?

Your Dollars at Work

As a nonprofit animal rescue, our highest expense is veterinary cost and medical care. This alone exceeds well into multiple six figures. We vaccinate, microchip, spay/neuter each animal that enters our care. We also take in many heartworm positive dogs and medical cases, like dogs requiring orthopedic surgery or extensive dental care.

After a decade(+) of operations, it’s time to give our facilities the update it (and the animals) deserves. The animals have brought so much joy, love, and companionship into the lives of countless individuals, and it’s only fitting that we provide them with some extra TLC to their environment. Our facilities are in need of essential upgrades and improvements to better serve our mission and enhance the experience of every animal that comes through our doors.

Is Making
A Difference

It all started in 2012, when a group of dedicated women banded together to begin 4 Paws 4 Life Rescue & Boarding, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal rescue.

Since then, 4P4L has been able to rescue tens of thousands of animals from high-kill shelters around the country. Our focus is to rescue abandoned, abused, and neglected animals, and provide them with medical attention, socialization, and love – while we work to find them loving and permanent homes.

Each year, approximately

920,000 shelter animals are euthanized. We’re on a mission to change that.

We believe the fight against euthanization and the homeless pet population starts directly in our communities. We are committed to working collaboratively with organizations and individuals who share our vision of a world where all animals are treated with compassion.

Since our start in 2012, we have:
