Our Mission

Core Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization bringing exposure to hard-to-place animals in rescues and shelters across the nation.

We believe that every dog and cat, no matter their age, medical need, or behavioral issue, deserves a loving forever home. These hard-to-place animals tend to be overlooked in shelters and rescues across the country, and that’s why we started Core Paws. We provide a free service to 501c3 shelters, rescues, and municipal shelters – to showcase these animals on one central website.


Core Paws is a non-profit organization that advocates for the underdog. We rejoice and stand up for senior animals. We think second-and third-chance animals simply haven't found the right family yet. These animals need extra love -- and will give it back a thousand times over. We know that if potential adopters knew about these special animals, they would welcome them into their homes.


For rescues and shelters, partnering with Core Paws means you are bringing your hard-to-place animals into the spotlight, in the hope of finding their perfect forever homes.


For volunteers, Core Paws allows you to feel a part of this movement, whether it's helping us spread stories of our animals through your social media, or visiting our partner rescues and shelters on our behalf.


For supporters of our cause and visitors to our website, your involvement makes the difference for every animal who has not had it easy, and who deserves a loving family.


And for adopters, it's a happy tail wag from a 12-year old dog who had lost his owner. It's a purr from a cat who was diagnosed with congenital heart disease and requires medication for the rest of her life. It's a trusting approach from an animal who used to fear the world.
