A monthly gift is an incredibly efficient way for you to support the mission of Philly Pug & Short Nose Rescue. The “Helping Paws” are a group of dedicated friends, like you, who make monthly gifts that provide a consistent, reliable income stream, allowing PPSNR to focus more resources on our lifesaving programs, and less on raising the necessary funds. Helping Paws, like you, like it because it’s easy to budget and they feel great to be making a difference for animals every month of the year.

The impact your gifts have can sometimes seem absolutely miraculous. The average medical bill for each rescue taken in is $645, yet our adoption fee remains $200 to $450. Obviously, that does not balance out. With rising medical costs and an increase in health issues that our rescues are coming in with, it will only get worse. PPSNR will never deny any of our rescues proper medications or the necessary medical care. We count on gifts all year round to make a difference in the lives of each of our rescues.

No gift is too small. For example, a $15 monthly gift provides monthly heart worm and flea & tick prevention for just one of our rescues. Donations from multiple Helping Paws can be combined to provide the necessary monthly medicines for our rescues waiting for their forever homes.
