Mission

Protectors of Paws & Claws strives to provide a source of safety for animals in a world where animal welfare is often overlooked. We aim to enhance the pet adoption experience for both people and pets, ensuring that all non-human animals are placed with safe and loving families. We are also committed to initiating the conversation about the role of race, culture, discrimination, and bias in the pet world. Our primary goal is to connect families looking for a pet with owners looking to rehome, or with other rescue groups and shelters.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There are immeasurable animals that need a home as a result of abandonment, rehoming, and semi-feral (strays). People who want to add a pet to their family often purchase said animal from a pet store or breeder. Our mission is to connect families looking for a pet with owners who are surrendering their pet. This way, the family searching for a pet finds a loving companion that matches their lifestyle without contributing to the multibillion dollar pet trade.

Diversity Committee

The Diversity Committee was established with the goal of initiating the conversation about how systematic oppression has impacted pet ownership. This committee will be responsible for reviewing materials distributed by the Organization to assess cultural competency and racial inclusion; committee members will suggest any relevant changes. The committee will also be responsible for advising the Executive
Directors on matters related to diversity, inclusion, and representation.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Connect families who want a pet with owners who no longer want or cannot keep to provide each animal with a loving home without contributing to pet breeding.

Search for owner surrenders or for posts indicating a family's desired pet. From there, interview potential families and connect with the family surrendering.

We have two directors/founders who are committed to helping animals get placed in a furever home.

We have placed ~15 animals in their forever homes since July 2020.
