​Thankful Paws Inc. is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, tax ID number 45-3154034

By doing this, we keep pets out of shelters or abandoned in the streets, thereby decreasing the euthanasia rate of animal-control facilities, lowering the tax burden on citizens whose tax dollars fund county-run animal control facilities, and giving other shelter animals a longer period of time in which to find their forever homes.

Please understand that the demand for this service currently is greater than the supply of food we have.  We will not accept a new client into the program unless we are certain that we can  consistently supply monthly food to them.  

As such, there may be a waiting period before you are accepted into the program.  

 To request, free of charge, any our foundational documents as well as our annual tax returns, please call the office at 410-622-4892 or email us at:
