Paws 4 the Cause's Adoption Process

We have an adoption form, followed by phone interview and home visit. Fees vary depending on the animal, from as $50 to $300 depending on how much vetting we have done and the type and breed of animal. Cats always go for $50 or less, because they are hard to place. We usually spend about $100 in vetting on each cat, so it is a loss. Pit bulls typically go for $150 or less, for the same reasons. We may put more into them, but they are hard to place.

About Paws 4 the Cause

Paws 4 the Cause has been in the business of saving animals since 2008. We currently have 10 people sitting on our board who each make a valuable contribution toward animal welfare.

Paws 4 the Cause is a registered 501(3)(c) non-profit operating throughout the central Kentucky area. We are an all-volunteer organization. We are centrally located in downtown Lexington, and we also support a 20 acre animal sanctuary in Scott County.

None of our board members receive any financial compensation and 100% of all donations go towards vet, food and housing bills for animals in need. Administrative costs are paid through a separate grant from
