Our Impact

Paws for Life is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless, neglected, abused and abandoned dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. We are proud of our life-saving record, which you can find below.


Paws for Life's life-saving percentage is calculated by dividing live outcomes by total dispositions.

  • A “live outcome” is an indication of the number of animals leaving a facility by means other than euthanasia or in-care death. Live outcomes are usually achieved through adoption, reclaim by owner,  transfer to another agency or other life‐saving actions. 

  • “Total dispositions” is the number of animals that entered the rescue’s care in the same period of time.
