Raised by 35 people in 21 months
Hamilton PAWS came together in 2010 to address gaps in services and to find practical solutions for vulnerable people and their animal companions. The goal of the program was to create options and resources for people who required essential health,housing or crisis services, but were unable to access them as they did not have care for their animal companions.

Hamilton PAWS was also committed to developing collaborations and partnerships that would create positive change in related concerns such as: access to pet food for people experiencing financial hardship and affordable pet health care options for those currently on a fixed income.

Our vision continues to focus on actions that will also promote community health and well-being.

Over the past 7 years Hamilton PAWS has seen much success and has been able to provide the following services:

• Funds for professional kenneling so that people would have safe care for their animal companions, while they accessed essential health, housing or crisis care services
• Coordination and 24hr support for volunteers that provide free temporary foster care homes for companion animals
• Funds for veterinarian services that are required for animal companions to enter foster care or kennel
• Free transportation of animal companions going into fostering or kennel
• Support to frontline workers in various community agencies to provide education of resources and problem solving in complex situations that included animal companions
• Additional resources for access to free pet food for those in financial need
• Providing space and support to Community Veterinarian Outreach to operate regular preventative pet care clinics in Hamilton for low income individuals
• Online resources and education for social services and the community

Hamilton PAWS does not currently receive funding and relies solely on the generosity of our partners, volunteers and supporters. We are very grateful for this and would not have been able to provide these services without your support.

This donation is being made of behalf of the Good Shepherd Social Committee. The committee organized a "kick off the summer food event" for staff to raise funds and pet food for Hamilton PAWS.
