    Weʼve raised £420 to buy an animal ambulance for PAAWS animal shelter in Antigua & Barbuda

    Saint John's, Antigua and Barbuda
    Funded on Saturday, 28th July 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.



    PAAWS animal charity in Antigua & Barbuda is raising money for an ‘animal ambulance’ to help our dogs and cats get the medical treatment and essential vaccinations they need.

    Our shelter has no transport of its own to ferry our four-legged friends to and from vet services, leaving them reliant on the kindness of our hard-working staff and volunteers.

    PAAWS is on a mission to raise money for a truck large enough to transport animal crates.

    Please help us help more sick, abandoned and abused dogs and cats in need – and access spay/neuter procedures to reduce the roaming population.

    PAAWS is a friendly society – in operation since 1996 – and runs entirely on donations.

    Please support us. Antigua & Barbuda’s animals need your help.

      Hello everybody, thought you would like to see a photo of the Paaws-mobile that is now on the road thanks to your generous donations and support. We were also given a donation of US$5000 from the Ontario SPCA :D The vehicle cost EC$10,000 and we have spent the remainder on getting it licensed, insured and ready for the road. We have a small amount left to embellish it with our logos to help raise our profile further. Every single cent is massively appreciated. Thank you so much from the entire Paaws team - both two- and four-legged XX
