Paws2Help (West Palm Beach, Florida 33409) is a small, privately run animal services charity. The organization is 100% for the animals, not the profit.


Here at Paws2Help, our ultimate goal is no unwanted, homeless or abused companion animals. Our emphasis to achieve this end is primarily, but not confined to, spay/neuter and public information and education. Secondarily, we endeavor to make basic veterinary care available to ALL pets in need, regardless of their owner’s ability to pay.

Lastly, but not with less importance, we will change the concept and accepted attitude about housing animals in public and private shelters from chain link and concrete kennels for some, and steel cages for others, to a comfortable home style environment for all. Each hour of every day we, as the owner, staff, volunteers, and members of Paws2Help, strive to push toward this destination.

Sammy’s Hope

Sammy’s Hope is an animal welfare organization dedicated to providing programs and services that help prevent homelessness in the pet population, improve the lives of homeless animals, and find them forever homes. We work with animal shelters in the Central New Jersey area.


Our volunteers socialize shelter cats, walk and socialize shelter dogs, facilitate adoptions, photograph market and promote adoptable pets, and help raise funds for much-needed medical care.

Arthur Benjamin, founder of American Dog Rescue Foundation (Dallas, Texas 75218-3423), is passionate about animal welfare – locally, nationally and globally. He is equally passionate about nurturing the involvement of others, as individuals or through the support of accredited nonprofits that use the highest percentage of funds to effect substantive rescue and advocacy outcomes.




To that end, his own foundation – American Dog Rescue Foundation – is an all-volunteer organization for which Arthur underwrites administrative costs. That means 100% of ADR proceeds go to animal welfare and projects to save and protect animals. Thus, contributors are assured their $5 and $10 donations, or $5,000 or $50,000 challenge grants will have maximum impact on the issues faced by ADR’s animal constituency. Most recently, the foundation’s areas of focus have been:

• Saving and expanding animal shelters

• Rescuing abandoned pets and live stock in the aftermath of recent disasters in Haiti, New Orleans and Joplin, MO.

• Providing special funding for specific animals in dire need, such as eye and heart surgeries that would be otherwise cost-prohibitive for the rescue organization or adoptive family involved.

• Closing down puppy mills nationwide

• Putting an end to the clubbing of baby seals for their pelts in Canada, Namibia, Greenland, Norway and Russia

• Saving the Canadian seal habitat, the loss of which is forcing females to abort their pups at sea

• Rescuing abandoned circus and theme park animals

• Cracking down on the inhumane practice of penning wild foxes and coyotes to be torn apart by hunting dogs

• Visiting and supporting sanctuaries and animal welfare organizations globally from China to South Africa

• Putting an end to dog fighting

• Helping Veterans with PTSD by connecting them with service dogs

4 Paws for Ability relies on the generosity of individuals, as well as corporations, and accepts donations for operating expenses, training, food, toys, training supplies, medication, and our building fund. Fundraising occurs primarily by the applicant with the assistance of 4 Paws. Given our current facility expansion at 207 Dayton Avenue, alternate sources of funding are necessary to achieve the required renovation and expansion plans.

Halfway Home Cat Rescue (Chicopee, Massachusetts 01021) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit group dedicated to cat and kitten rescue, care, and adoption. We provide a no-kill, cage-free environment in our foster homes for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens until placing them in permanent, loving homes.

Susie’s Senior Dogs

Susie’s Senior Dogs is working to bring awareness to and increase senior dog adoptions. Homeless senior dogs have one of the hardest times getting adopted simply because of their age. People fear adopting an older for a variety of reasons, but we’re here to tell a different story.


Senior dogs have so much love to give!  And although it’s true that you might have less time together than you would when adopting a puppy, a senior dog makes up for it with their appreciation of being given a second chance. There’s nothing like earning the love an older animal.
