What your donations do for PAHS

Your gifts are essential to the work PAHS does on behalf of animals. As a 501(c)3 charitable organization, PAHS is funded entirely by donations, which are tax-deductible. Your contributions support PAHS programs in intervention, to assist animals in immediate need; education, to foster compassion among people of all ages; and advocacy, to encourage humane practices among public and private enterprises.
