About

MCPAW’s Mission
& Programs

That animals in shelters deserve to be happy and healthy, and that when they are happy and healthy, they are more likely to be adopted. So, we fund veterinary care, supplies of toys and continued socialization. We also fund post-adoption veterinary care when people knowingly adopt an animal with special needs

Mcpaw’s unique and all-encompassing
programs are based on the following core beliefs :

MCPAW believes…

That no pet should suffer in pain, be surrendered to a shelter, or be euthanized simply
because its owner has fallen on hard times. So, we fund critical medical procedures and
provide free pet food to those in need

That animals in shelters deserve to be happy and healthy, and that when they are happy and healthy, they are more likely to be adopted. So, we fund veterinary care, supplies of toys and continued socialization. We also fund post-adoption veterinary care when people knowingly adopt an animal with special needs

That awaiting adoption in a caring foster home is preferable to waiting in a shelter. So
MCPAW will work with shelters and a network of qualified foster care volunteers to find
temporary homes – especially when the pet needs special attention and love

And,

That when people are well-prepared to select the best pet for them and know how to
acclimate that pet to its new home and lifestyle, the pet will remain in that home. So, we are increasing our focus on educating the masses on these matters with simple and proven techniques communicated via short videos, on our website, and more
