Paw It Forward

Committed to Providing No-Cost Veterinary Care for Pets in Need

Paw It Forward is a powerful testament to the impact of compassion and community backing. As a family-operated 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we are committed to bridging gaps and extending financial aid to pets and their owners navigating adversities. We offer vital support through our animal hospital, Healthy Pets Urgent Care, by providing no-cost veterinary care to pets whose owners are unhoused or otherwise lack the financial means to access urgent medical care for their cherished companions.

Hope for Pets and Their People

Paw It Forward's mission is a testament to our commitment to making a difference in our community.

Healthy Pets Urgent Care, where our compassionate veterinarians ensure pets receive the care they need regardless of their owners’ financial means, lies at the heart of our efforts.

We understand the special bond between unhoused individuals and their loyal companions. Pets provide connection and comfort, and we are here to ease the financial burden of seeking veterinary care through no-cost routine services and funding for emergency pet care services.

Funding Change, One Treat at a Time

Our commitment to change extends beyond veterinary care to our bakery,

Happy Pets Bakery, where we craft healthy, homemade treats to delight pets’ taste buds and meet their nutritional needs. This isn’t just any pet bakery, though. In addition to filling pet’s bellies with yummy, all-natural snacks, we donate a portion of our proceeds to Paw It Forward.

Encouraging Unity Through Kindness

Paw It Forward and Happy Pets Bakery’s story is one of community uniting in the spirit of kindness.

We form connections that surpass individual efforts by offering a way for pet parents to pamper their four-legged family members while giving back to pets and people in need. Giving is a simple, daily act when purchasing a treat provides funding that touches the lives of others.
