The Project Pawsitive Foundation is a team of excited (maybe even hyper!), enthusiastic, and caring friends in the construction and business industries who love to surprise deserving animal rescues in need of great repair with amazing facility renovations. Renovations are filmed to take viewers on the team’s quest and get a first-hand look at why so many rescues are in desperate need of help, the importance of animal adoption, and how to prevent animal cruelty.

Back from the brink
Too many animal rescues and shelters are on the verge of closure. Leaking roofs, crumbling foundations, and more are putting these life-saving facilities in jeopardy. – Jill, Team Leader of Project Pawsitive
This year, millions of innocent animals will be saved by struggling animal rescues and shelters within the United States. These facilities are busting at the seams and on the verge of closure from a down economy and donations that are steadily decreasing as surrenders are drastically increasing.
Even though these amazingly caring animal rescues and shelters are full of selfless volunteers who would give anything for these innocent animals — loss of donations often lead to failing facilities. Leaking roofs, crumbling foundations, lack of adequate power, space and electricity are all symptoms that the majority of rescues in America deal with. And, they are in desperate need of a solution.
Animal Shelters and Rescues Affected by Natural Disasters
Hurricane Sandy, which hit the Northeast hard last fall, damaged many live-saving animal facilities around the area and they are still struggling today. In addition, hundreds of animals were brought to already struggling rescues and shelters because their homes had been destroyed. These types of disasters put animal organizations into crisis mode. Their donations are running extremely low, their intakes are increasing, and in many cases, their facilities have been heavily damaged.
Praying to Stay Open
We have experienced several situations where animal rescues were praying to stay open, but their lack of funding was making it too difficult to imagine. With limited donations, their number one focus is always on taking care of animals in need. But, the burden of their decaying buildings make it difficult to remain open. Project Pawsitive has helped animal rescues on the verge of closure remain open and saving animals in desperate need. By repairing their facilites, we are able to help them focus their funding on where it is most important – the animals. We try to take the worry away from a deteriorating building.
“We were talking about having to close our doors and then Project Pawsitive called. The repairs they made to our building were a Godsend,” Salem Animal Rescue League, 2012
Project Pawsitive’s 2013 Goal
Our goal is to provide an extreme makeover for four animal rescues this year! Each year, we raise money to provide an extreme makeover to the so many desperate facilities in need. We need your support to make it happen.
Help us raise $50,000 by donating, or purchasing our clothing, to provide an extreme makeover to animal rescues and shelters on the verge of closure. Help us save shelters to save best friends.
