Partnering, With Only the Best

Paws-to-Share is about bringing pets and people together, and as part of effort, we pay special attention to the health and well-being of the pets.  And we love to ensure that pets that haven't always lived their best lives are part of the effort.  Almost 85% of the pets that join on visits have come from pet rescues, and we are remarkably grateful to those organizations that work tirelessly to find the best homes for these pets.  So it is our pleasure to announce that Paws-to-Share is now partnering with a number of rescue organizations, providing both financial and resource support, and they help us identify the pups who would be most comfortable joining on our visits.  So again, our sincerest gratitude to the following partners:

In 2020 over 315 treatable companion animals were euthanized in Riverside.  Our vision is to help save them all so Riverside can be a no-kill community. We rescue and treat vulnerable at-risk companion animals and place them in forever homes.  We are proud, honored, and humbled to be selected as the second best nonprofit in the Inland Empire! Thank you to our wonderful supporters for honoring us, the The Press-Enterprise, and the many other amazing nonprofits that support our community. THANK YOU!!! And, not to mention, and thanks to our fans, Foster Army Animal Rescue is one of the winners of the 2020 Top-Rated Award from Great Nonprofits!

Southern California

Located in Southern California, we provide dog rescue and dog adoption by placing rescued dogs in foster homes and providing care and a safe haven for them until they are ready to find their ‘furever’ homes.  We have foster homes from the Los Angeles area all the way down to the San Diego region.  Our rescue was born out of a need to be an advocate for dogs who can’t peak for themselves.  Rover’s Retreat dog rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization staffed only by volunteers.  All vet bills and costs are covered by tax-deductible donations from people just like you!

Smitten with the Kittens is a non-profit 501(c)(3) animal rescue (EIN #85-2185924) whose mission is to: Provide cat and kitten rescue and pet adoption in the Southern California area.  ALL of our cats and kittens are kept in loving foster homes until they are ready for pet adoption. Smitten with the Kittens pays for all medical costs while in foster and homes are always needed!  As an all volunteer non-profit organization kitten rescue, our volunteers are the core and the heart of our rescue!


Southern California

Southern California Labrador Retriever Rescue, Inc. was started in early 1998. Since then, we have grown from our initial seven volunteer members to nearly 150 volunteers who work throughout Southern California assisting Labrador Retrievers in need. Nearly all of the Labs that become available for adoption are adult dogs. We rarely have dogs under a year old. Most of the dogs we place are between two and six years of age. We often have older dogs, too — and we think the seniors are simply the greatest companion animals!

San Diego

The Animal Pad is a non-profit, all breed dog rescue that focuses on saving dogs from high kill shelters and the streets of Mexico.  We get them vet care, place them in foster homes and then find them loving forever families. A few years ago, we turned our attention to the street dogs of Mexico as there is very little help for them. Since then, we have developed a large rescue network in Baja California and we have a sister shelter in Ensenada that we focus on taking dogs from whenever funds allow.
