[ PAAW House Foundation. ]
[ You can make a difference supporting people & pets. ]
United we can provide help and support for pet owners who are struggling during these hard times. With the current cost-of-living crisis we fear the UK is on the brink of an animal welfare crisis.
The aim of PAAW House Foundation is to work with local London foodbanks across four boroughs (Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Greenwich, and Islington) to support people who are struggling with their pets, providing food and essentials, as well as fundraising to help support the foodbank charities operate. We will continue to support StreetVet with their work for the homeless and their dogs and Wild at Heart Foundation UK projects.
If you think you can spare a little something to help people and pets who are struggling, you can donate here.
Our story begins out of love for a little dog called Vinnie, and outdated discriminatory no pet clauses, which unfortunately forced Us out of our home.
Following our experience, we realised the heart-breaking impact these outdated policies were having on people all over the UK, with some being forced to give up their pets altogether or lose their home.
Hearing first hand all these heart-breaking stories, we decided we wanted to challenge the status quo and founded PAAW House.
Over the years our passion for pets has connected us with wonderful animal charities. Fundraising on their behalf has been one of the most rewarding parts of our journey, therefore it feels like a natural progression for PAAW House to become a charity. We are currently a not for profit in the process of becoming a registered charity.
Our philosophy has always been that pets are family, and the human animal bond should be nurtured and respected by all.
We have been lucky to work with some amazing campaigners who have made huge progress in promoting these values. These include Dee Bonnet who is responsible for ‘The John Chadwick Pet Policy’ and Jen Berezai with her ‘Heads for Tails’ campaign.
Highlighting these issues will continue to feature strongly as part of our identity.
