Project Open Paw

$29,744 of $1.0M goal

Raised by 367 people in 31 months
Project Open Paw started when I  couldn't help noticing and befriending several dogs living with their owners in the homeless camps around the neighborhood. For the past tgree years I have fed them. I am determined to carry on the legacy of love and joy that these beautiful dogs and I have shared. Please find it in your heart to donate even a few cents so I can carry on my labor of love and sleep with the peace of mind that these wonderful animals slept with food in their bellies. I thank you wholeheartedly and your small donation will make a huge difference in the life of a deserving dog in need of a simple meal.     https://m.facebook.com/ProjectOpenPaw/ ‌   http://bit.ly/bap0315

Thank you for the donations.. Your kindness has helped Boobear's health and wellness improve tremendously since he came to us for help! Thanks to you caring enough! He and I thank you and his improved skin condition with vet care provided by us as well as his family moving off of the ground and into a R.V. have made all the difference in his life... His brother Red will be sorely missed, He passed away from the same illness that we just saved Boobear from.. R.I.P. Red! I love you forever!

Thank you for the recent donations, guys.. So appreciated! We are still plugging away and making a difference.. Even with the big changes in San Francisco's homeless population due to the navigation centers getting folks indoor homes and others being run further and further out into the industrial areas.. There is always a need out there and we are handing out an average of 200 lbs. of food every week! Because we cared! ❤ Much love and,God bless us all!❤
Duchess is a sweet senior girl (19 years old!) So happy we can help her with food and supplements to make her golden years a little brighter!

I called Fog City and asked why they changed the policy. I was told ONE customer complained, so all food "leftovers" are returned with the dog at the end of the day. I'm sure if you asked each owner if they would like to donate "leftovers" they would be happy to do so. That makes sense, but easy solutions never occur to most people (or dog owners) So sad .

I am so thankful for you and all you do for the homeless dogs in SF. You are truly a blessing. Did my part yesterday helping the unfortunate! Also helped a FB friend with a vet bill for her dog, donated to a rescue and provide dog food, monthly, to a person in my community who cannot afford to buy his dogs food. We all must help!!

Keep up the donations! For most of the dogs that Paul helps depend on the food he delivers! Thank you Paul for continuing this work! I hope that you will never stop doing this, but pray that one day, you wouldn't need to. More blessings to you.

Hello Paul, we hope everything is going well for you. Your opening comment has us worried. You're the 'walker' not the 'talker' Paul. Thanks.

Oh yeah, now this is how it should be. People who are all strangers to each other helping out. There is hope for us, isn't there.

Paul; have you thought about hooking up with Amazon as a local charity and doing a wish list of supplies that you need? people may want to donate supplies instead of money; just a thought
