WHAT WE DO
As Maryland's first mobile pet food bank, our mission is to promote the Human-Animal Bond. Pets are an important part of maintaining social, physical, and mental wellness. Through our pet food delivery program, Thankful Paws can increase our clients' overall health while reducing the number of abandoned or euthanized pets. It is our heart to reach out and serve our community's elderly, who are often isolated and forgotten.
Currently, Thankful Paws delivers to parts of Harford and Baltimore Counties. We are an all-volunteer, home-based charity.
Hero...the inspiration for & co-founder of Thankful Paws.
OUR HEART BEHIND
Founded in 2011, Thankful Paws is a Maryland charity that celebrates the unconditional love of pets. Hero was the founding inspiration behind our mission. He personally attended over 300 events and oversaw most of the deliveries.
He shared his compassion with everyone he met. During Hero's life, we delivered over 75 tons of pet food and supplies. It is our heart to continue the PAWsome work that was started in his name. Sadly, in 2019 he lost his battle with Cushing's Disease, and now every year, we host a fundraiser in his memory.
Hero is also the subject of a children's book that encourages young people to find beauty in everyone they meet. Please purchase your copy at Amazon.
