Social Impact

It is our mission to reduce the number of homeless pets in shelters by developing and donating to high-impact, “outside-the-box” initiatives that have the potential to increase adoption rates and/or reduce intake rates at shelters.

Ten percent (10%) of all profits generated by Urban Paw are dedicated to this
