Welcome to the Official - Paws For Friendship Inc. - Website
Shopping via iGive is essentially a store rebate program where iGive members have the opportunity to donate their rebate to their chosen cause. iGive receives compensation beyond the posted donation amounts, and many stores pay to advertise on our site. We manage with a streamlined overhead, and use of the best in automated systems to provide our members and causes with this free service. When iGive members shop via our special links, an "iGive Cookie" is assigned to your browser. This tells the store, "Here is an iGive Member" using a meaningless member ID number. The store reports back with this number and the amounts for the donation to your cause. We never have access to any payment information.
Ways to Use iGive:
• Search the Web via iSearchiGive.com
• Starting at the iGive.com or iGive.com/mobile sites.
• Installing the iGive Button
• Installing the iGive App for iPhone, IPad or Android (visit the App Store
and search "iGive" - free)
• Using links in the iGive Newsletters

If we get 200 PAWS members (there are almost 50 members in our local Nebraska team alone) to participate. And those members each recruit 3 of their friends to donate their receipts that would generate 800 receipts total.
800 receipts multiplied by a modest monthly grocery expense of $400......
800 X 400 = $320,000 total receipts to be submitted = $2000 donation to PAWS in just 1 month.
We know it won’t be an overnight fundraiser BUT anything will help!!! PLEASE spread the NEWS to all your friends!!!

Some employers even double or triple the gifts their employees give! Often these programs are not utilized to the full extent by their employees. Please ask!! Thanks....

EASY ways to help our Organization Raise Funds!
We are all Volunteers there is no paid staff. We are NOT affiliated with any other organization(s) nor do we have any sponsor(s) that would help with financial support. Unfortunately, there are costs that are associated with any and all organizations so we, like others, are continually looking for new avenues that can help us pay these expenses. Unfortunately, we must continually look for ways to raise these funds. Primarily we rely on donations given by individuals who realize the ‘magic’ our pets can bring into so many lives! We also offer a monthly contribution starting at $20.00 per month, please ask us if you are interested!
Below are several programs that have come to our attention. WE hope you will look into them and use those that you can feel comfortable with. THANKS for your understanding and continued support.
FYI PLEASE remember, we are not associated with ANY other Organization, we are always looking for Sponsors! Our Programs are customized to our Organization and we are very proud of that! In 2018 we will CELEBRATE 25 years of all Volunteer service to many communities!! Thank you!!!

WoofTrax people have walked over 2 million miles in support of 4,700 local shelters and rescue organizations.
