      Welcome to the Official - Paws For Friendship Inc. - Website


Our Mission Statement:
Paws For Friendship Incorporated is a non-profit Organization of Volunteers sharing the unconditional love of their personal pets with people in need throughout the world.​

 Operation Homeward Bound is back. We will add any missing baby, regardless of area, to this as long as we have all the details, photos and contact information. PLEASE know we removed it because after a baby was posted we never heard if it had been found or re-homed? Our goal is to help find these precious babies and cannot thank you enough for sharing their story with your friends and ask them to share the story. It is a very small world and you never know who may know where these little angels are. 

​​It's said the souls of those we love become part of our souls forever

"Everyone must leave a legacy and Paws for Friendship Incorporated is the legacy of Jennie, our beloved Founder."​

We each hear and see the words 'animal cruelty' but most often dismiss it as something that happens 'someplace else.' After all, each and every PAWS member cares deeply for their four legged companion and could not imagine someone doing harm to this loved one. FACT is, it happens and can be committed even by members of our own organization. We are being conditioned to "mind our own business" or that if we report any such activity we have somehow committed a crime and now WE are the 'bad guys.' NOTHING can be farther from the TRUTH! In order to combat this and help save these precious and innocent lives from those that wish to do them harm, we have instituted a tab committed to ANIMAL CRUELTY. PLEASE, take the time to review this valuable information as it may indeed save a poor creature from a life of torture and misery.
