About Us

How We're Helping

We are a  501(c)(3) pet welfare organization focused on keeping pets in their forever homes by providing surrender prevention programs (emergency access to pet food and vet care) to low income pet owners. We also rescue displaced pets.

Can you Help?


Animals are suffering from the devastating economic coronavirus upheaval. Our neighbors are just beginning to feel the consequences of this crisis. Jobs will be lost or hours greatly reduced. This will inadvertently lead to more abandoned pets on our streets or in high kill shelters. These animals will join the existing homeless and feral animals.

Let’s look at one local community – Hollywood, Florida. There are currently over 100 abandoned domestic and feral residing in a cat colony. Volunteer cat colony feeder, Beatrice Reitano, has been caring for and feeding these cats with her own funds for quite some time.

Beatrice recently lost her job. She can no longer afford the $80 per week needed to feed these cats.

Passion for Paws has been subsidizing food costs, but we could use everyone’s help. We are asking for donations. Every little bit helps. Please, if you are able, consider donating. And please, share this email with friends and colleagues who might be able to assist Beatrice and the vulnerable cats.

Help Honeybun


Honeybun, an American Bulldog, was injured in a hit and run incident in West Palm Beach, FL. Both back legs were fractured. She is currently in stable condition, but she will need surgery estimated at $4,500. His owner can only afford a portion of the surgery. Passion for Paws is currently looking for donations for Honeybun’s surgery. Can you help? Every little bit helps.  Please feel free to call me with any questions.

Dog Food for Those in Need

Passion for Paws currently has a good inventory of bagged food for medium and/or large dogs. We would like to make this food available for individual dog owners/families who are out of work or getting by on reduced hours due to the current crisis. Reminder, dog food can be found in pet stores and Publix, for those who can purchase food for their pets. This offer is for those in need. We have many brands of grain free food. If you know of someone we could help, please email director@passionforpaws.info or call Ava at 561-420-0553. 


Success Story

CeeJay and Gizmo

 A local Uber driver was residing in extended stay hotels. He ran out of cash and was forced to live in his truck with his two pups, CeeJay and Gizmo.  He was unable to perform his Uber duties with his dogs in the truck. We stepped in and funded a four day stay at the Bed and Biscuit boarding house in Coconut Creek, FL. We had the dogs vaccinated and treated the shih tzu’s ear infection. This enabled their owner to work and raise money for their extended stay hotel rent. Reunited, the trio will relocate to either Orlando or Tennessee where the cost of living is more manageable. We are here to help folks finding themselves in difficult times.
