Supporting Paws Foundation

Our Mission

We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing financial and material support to no-kill animal shelters and other organizations who are working to reduce the homeless animal population.  We are located in the Harrisburg, PA, region.

We raise funds primarily through holding dog obedience classes and offering CDSP Obedience Trials. We also offer AKC Rally Virtual Trials for our supporters, to help them reach their AKC Rally Obedience goalsWe attend Petapalooza, Woofstock, and other public events, raising money through the sale of handmade dog toys, cat toys, and other crafts. 

Since 2014, we have fulfilled our mission by giving nearly $40,000 to small groups that provide vital assistance to our furry (and feathered, and hooved!) friends.  In 2023, we gave to the following worthy organizations:
