How Can You Help?

Promises Animal Rescue is a charitable organization under the section 501(c)(3) of the I.R.S code. P.A.R. is all-volunteer organization, who relies heavily on public interest and support. Your generous help will assist us with our mission to rescue, rehabilitate and find loving, forever homes for the wonderful and deserving dogs that we rescue. Your contributions will provide food and needed medical attention for the wonderful dogs that are in our care. Everything you give us, large or small, will go towards saving and caring for another dog's life. 100% of all donations are used for the dogs.
Donations of goods and your TIME are just as important as your financial support. Become an active Promises volunteer and have direct contact with our wonderful dogs. On behalf of the dogs and puppies whose lives you continue to improve - thank you!

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization under the I.R.S. code.

Come visit us at one of our many adoption events - meet some of our great dogs and wonderful volunteers and add a little something to our donation jar! Cash or checks are welcome.

Employer Matching Fund Programs:

Your donation to Promises Animal Rescue may be able to go even further with a matching gift from your employer. Many companies have charitable programs which "match" their employees' charitable contributions by doubling or even tripling their gift with a donation from the company. Please find out if your employer has such a program. You may be able to help the dogs more than you thought!

Sponsor a Specific Dog:

We have many dogs that have special needs and/or expensive vet bills. Some have to go through heartworm treatment; some come to us with parasites, mange, or illnesses/injuries that were not properly taken care of. Our adoption fees don't come close to paying for the care of these dogs. Sponsoring a dog with a monetary donation will help Promises Animal Rescue continue to save dogs that may need a little extra TLC. Sponsor a dog via PayPal. We thank you and our dogs thank you, also.
