Fur the Love of Paws is getting ready to turn 3 years!!!
Fur the Love of Paws is a Charitable, 501c3 organization started by a group of dedicated animal lovers, with a combined 25+ years of rescue experience, who wanted to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals.
Currently being operated by volunteers and foster homes, our goal is to provide a shelter for homeless, neglected and unwanted cats and eventually dogs and to open a center to provide sanctuary for animals where euthanasia is never an option for a healthy animal.
We are working tirelessly to raise funds for a new facility to operate in!
By opening a facility without having to rely on foster homes, we will be able to greatly increase the number of pets we can help. We will be able to offer shelter to those animals that may need some extra time before they are adoptable, and offer sanctuary for those who may never be ready.
If you would like to help, please use our pay-pal link to make a secure online donation, mail your donation to the address at the bottom of the page or shop from hundreds of stores online using iGive.com and register us as your charitable organization. All donations are Tax-deductible and receipts will be mailed.

We are a not for profit, non-euthanizing cat (and eventually, dog) rescue/sanctuary. The three founders who started our organization have a combined 25 years of animal rescue experience. As fate would have it, we all ended up working with the same group, and as time went by, we learned that there are many more animals in desperate need of homes than the already overcrowded shelters can handle. As a consequence, thousands of animals are euthanized each year in Maryland alone, simply due to lack of space in shelters. So we decided to volunteer our time and start our own rescue organization, not only for the extreme need, but for our unconditional love of animals. Fur the Love of Paws...
