Paw It Forward
Here is how the program works:
1. A volunteer, staff, adopter, business organization, schools, or anyone can pick a dog or a cat that he/she wants to sponsor the adoption fee, which is $50.00.
2. If you don't have a specific animal in mind, you can always look at our website for the list of adoptable pets, or you can let the CARE STL staff pick one for you!
3. When someone comes in to adopt the pet that you have selected to sponsor, we will let them know that you sponsored the adoption fee. Most of the time, based on our experience, the adopter will pay it forward, they will typically donate $50 to sponsor another dog. It just goes on and on.
4. Paw It Forward enabled to help those who cannot afford to pay a fee but wanted to adopt and take the dog out of the shelter and provide care and housing at their home.
