The Paw Pad

Our Pet List

Who We Are

THE PAW PAD is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the welfare of homeless, abandoned, and abused animals. We are an all-volunteer organization helping animals in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia.

Adopting a friend

Through our adoption program, THE PAW PAD seeks to identify permanent and loving homes, primarily for cats and dogs. All animals are fostered by our volunteers. When adopting one of our animal friends, we only ask a tax-deductible donation. All animals up for adoption are spayed or neutered prior to placement and are up to date on shots.

It is the policy of THE PAW PAD to ensure that the most suitable homes are provided for animals brought into our program. We reserve the right to reject applications that do not meet adoption-screening criteria.

If you would like to add one of our furry friends to your loving home, or would like more information, please email
