Make a gift. Save a life today.

Your gift to Operation Paws for Homes will immediately help us to save animals in need!

OPH depends on donations from generous people like you to provide the medical, transportation, fostering, and adoption services needed to place 1,200 homeless dogs and cats in forever homes each year.

Did you know that many corporations offer employee giving programs where they match donations to Operation Paws for Homes? Check with your employer today to see if they provide matching gifts!


Our rescued dogs and cats are cared for throughout their adoption journey, from before they leave the shelter in the transport van to the day they’re welcomed with open arms by their adopters. Adoption fees help offset our expenses, but do not cover all of the services that are needed and provided by OPH.
