Donations and Contributions | Dusty Paws Rescue

As Dusty Paws Rescue does not receive any type of government assistance, we rely on public donations as well as donations from various organizations including Maddie's Fund, Petco Foundation and Pet Food Express to absorb the costs of our organization. Monies donated are used to spay, neuter, vaccinate, and provide necessary medical care. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit, which means all donations are tax deductible.

Our adoption fees do not cover the costs involved to get an animal ready for adoption, therefore donations are always welcome and needed for their care and ongoing support.

We offer several ways to contribute to our organization:

Your Change Could Change a Life

Penny for your charity? Set up a jar at work, at school or at home and start filling it with your change: pennies, dimes, nickels and quarters. Have everyone get involved – coworkers, family members, friends and anyone else who wants to participate. After 6 – 12 months donate the jar full of coins to us and we will cash it in at CoinStar, or you can cash it in for us and donate the cash. Change adds up over time and could easily cover a vet bill or food for our fosters.

One Time Cash Donation via PayPal or Major Credit Card

Make a one-time secure donation using PayPal or your major credit card.

If you are using a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover), please click the Donate button, and when you are taken to the PayPal screen, look for the section that says “Don’t Have A PayPal Account?” and proceed from there.


Good Search

There’s an easy way to raise money for Dusty Paws Rescue which doesn’t cost you a cent.  If you sign on to and select Dusty Paws Rescue as your charity, any search you do on goodsearch will raise a penny.  And, if you use goodshop to do a little online shopping you select the store you want, make your purchase and that store will make a donation of a certain percentage to Dusty Paws Rescue.  There is also a gooddining option where certain restaurants will donate as well.  A penny doesn’t seem like a lot until you realize how much you use the internet, and how much you shop!

We host several fundraisers during the year to help raise funds as well.  Please check our Events Page or ‘Like’ us on Facebook to see what we’re up to.
