A Helping Paw

We are proud to support these amazing organizations.

Compassion without Borders brings brighter futures to animals in need on both sides of the border. We focus our efforts where the need is the greatest, but where animals are the very least likely to be helped due to financial, geographic, and cultural barriers.

Our programs include a dog rescue program from Mexico and the Central Valley, along with free veterinary wellness and spay/neuter clinics in underserved communities on both sides of the border.


Dogs on Deployment is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit providing a central network for America's Heroes to find volunteers willing to board their pets while they are deployed or have other service commitments, making them unable to temporarily care for their pets. No pet should ever be surrendered to a shelter due to a service commitment. DoD exists to help military, veterans and first-responders keep their pets by alleviating the need for pet relinquishment from due to the hardships of deployments or other service commitments.

Additionally, Dogs on Deployment promotes responsible, life-long pet ownership in the community by:

  • Advocating for military pet owner rights on military installations
  • Providing educational resources for military members about responsible pet ownership
  • Granting financial assistance to military members for help with their pet's care during emergencies
  • Promoting healthy pet lifestyles, including spay and neuter, insurance options and vaccinations
  • Connecting with community organizations to ensure Dogs on Deployment resources are available to military families

Dogs on Deployment supports pets of all types that belong to active duty, reservists, National Guard, honorably discharged veterans, first-responders and government service employees and their families.*

Saving Horses, Saving Lives

Senior Dogs Are Our Mission

Mureille’s Place is a small home-based 501c3 non-profit rescue in Northeast PA providing end of life care for senior dogs. We are a no-kill rescue offering a safe haven for unwanted senior dogs until they are adopted or if unadoptable, a place to live out their remaining days with love, dignity and respect.

The Sato Project is dedicated to rescuing abused and abandoned dogs from Puerto Rico. There are currently an estimated 500,000 stray dogs roaming the island’s streets and beaches. With no access to food, fresh water, or veterinary care, many of these dogs are living daily lives of severe suffering. The municipal shelter system is drastically overwhelmed, with only five shelters across all 78 of the island’s municipalities. These shelters have a combined euthanasia rate of over 94%. For thousands of stray and abandoned dogs across Puerto Rico, we are their only hope.

We continue to care for those who cannot speak or care for themselves. We educate our community, defend the meekest, teach humane treatment for all living creatures, foster a compassion for the weakest, heal the broken trust of the abused, and link the lonely with a four-legged companion. Whether it’s an unwanted German Shepherd or a tabby whose guardian has passed away—no matter what the reason, we take them. And we will until we educate every person in our community that spaying and neutering animals is the only humane thing to do, that owning a pet is a commitment for the lifetime of the pet, that abuse or neglect is unconscionable and illegal. And we will try to match every adoptable pet with a loving home. Every day. As we continue our journey of a Heart.

The SPCA of Luzerne County uplifts our community by providing compassion, comfort, and care to domestic companion animals through education, advocacy, protection and a shelter/adoption program.
