Pima Paws for Life is at a critical point with expenses. Our operating budget has been depleted, and we have animals such as Oreo who are depending on your generosity to help us continue caring for them. Oreo is also in need of surgery to remove his left front leg, which is unusable. No amount is too small. Oreo and his friends thank you for giving them their second chance at having a good life!
You can make a donation through the mail, in person at the shelter, or just follow the link! 

I Want to Help








Pima Paws For Life is an Adoption Guarantee animal shelter.  


An Adoption Guarantee shelter is one in which every adoptable animal is guaranteed a home. Animals are only euthanized if they are suffering with no hope of recovery, or have behavioral problems so severe that they are a threat to the safety of others. Pima Paws For Life believes that every animal's life has value. Every life matters. To read our Mission Statement, click here.

By partnering with the citizens of our community and other local shelters and rescues, Pima Paws For Life is dedicated to helping build a no kill Pima County- a community where pets are no longer destroyed just because they are homeless. 

Every year, thousands of animals lose their lives in Pima County shelters.

The numbers are overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Almost two hundred communities across the country have ended the unnecessary deaths.

                                     The people of Pima County can do it, too!





We focus on taking in dogs and cats with medical needs, which incur extra veterinary care costs before they are ready for their forever homes. These are the animals most at risk, so we feel it is imperative to our mission to focus most of our efforts on their well being.

You have the power to make a difference! A donation of just $5.00 a month will help us reach our life-saving goals, and give these animals the second chance they deserve. Remember, it doesn’t happen without the support of animal loving people like you!
