Fundraising with PawZaar's Helping Paw Program

Join the Movement

Nearly 7 million dogs and cats pass through the US animal shelter system every year. You know the joy that these pets can bring—and know that rescue pets rescue us. Show your pride in your rescue pet, and let’s inspire others to adopt, don’t shop!

PawZaar helps pet parents show their pride in rescue pets with jewelry that helps sponsor a homeless dog or cat waiting for a forever home. With every gift, you'll receive a card with the photo of a homeless cat or dog whose care your purchase makes possible.

Our jewelry puts your passion for pets into words.

Sometimes we all need a helping paw...

We often get emails and posts on our Facebook pages about the need to raise money for pets, from veterinary care to moving expenses and pet deposits to help keep families together. The stories tug at our heartstrings. And so we launched Helping Paw.

Our Helping Paw fundraising program lets you raise money for all kinds of pet needs:

  • veterinary care for your own pets
  • donations to your favorite rescue or shelter
  • care for a needy pet at a local shelter
  • training for a service animal
  • pet deposits
  • adoption fees
  • routine pet care and medications

This program is open to pet lovers everywhere; you don't have to be a nonprofit. You'll raise funds by registering for our affiliate program and sharing your unique link with your friends and family members as well as your social media accounts or, if you have one, your blog.

And we welcome rescues and supporters of rescues to sign up, too! There's no inventory to invest in, no orders to fulfill. You share your unique link with your friends then we take it from there!

How Much Will I Make?

Each of the products in the Helping Paw Collection will feature a $10 per item affiliate commission! If a friend of yours purchases one item on the page, you earn $10. If they purchase five items, you earn $50. And so it goes! The collection includes our exclusive bracelet sets and our RESCUE Tote with products starting at under $20.

What if they purchase something on a different page? You'll make a 10% commission on every other product sold on the site through your unique link!

Also, every sale on PawZaar generates a donation of 10 percent of proceeds to assist the featured animal shelter of the week.
