Volunteering

I bet you are thinking to yourself...  Self, Paws Up of Nebraska is such a GREAT
organization, and I would like to help them but how??

Fostering??

  I can't have a dog at my apartment/home, or my family is not ready for a pet .

Donating??
Another great option, but i don't get to be with all these amazing dogs, plus money is tight right now can't afford it.  HMMMMM?? What to do….

I’ve Got It, I Can Volunteer!!


That’s correct!!  Volunteering does not cost anything but some free time.

  Paws Up can always use a little extra help. Either directing pet owners at a Microchip Clinic, showing off one of our Great foster dogs at a meet & greet event, taking a foster dog for a walk every now and then, or the ABSOLUTE BEST thing, helping load or unload pet food for our food pantry!  The list goes on and on!!

You get the choice of what kind of help and how much time you can spare.  Now you are wondering how do I get started?   First you could call, email, PM us on FB,or email us a volunteer form.  Then watch our Facebook page for events or calls for HELP, or look at the Website for upcoming events that you would like to help with. Just contact us and we will fill you in on the details.

  Sooo Simple and Fun!

  How could you go wrong spending time with the Paws Up Family!!

 

 

Paws Up Pup of The Week
Kiara (aka KIKI by her foster mom)

 

Kiara is a 4 year old pit bull mix, we think she is part bulldog(originally potbelly pig mix).  Kiara is a sweet little girl with lots of love and hugs to give.  Her original owner lost to his home due to  some difficulties.  He did his best to keep her, by going to friends homes and staying with them for as long as they could.  When he decided he could no longer keep uprooting Kiara, he asked a friend to hold onto her until he got things straightened out.  After two years of not having contact with him, the friend contacted Paws Up for help.  Due to medical issues Kiara was having, he could not afford to keep her. 

When we took in Kiara she weighed close to 80 lbs, and had two torn ACL’s.   She was mobile but not for long periods of time. Paws Up gladly took this cat loving cuddler in.  We took on the responsibility of get her health issues fixed, before she is adopted. The surgeries have not been done yet, due to the Kiara needed to lose a few pounds, and we had to get money donated to help pay her medical bills.   Kiaras foster mom put her on a strict diet and light exercise program, and she has lost a lot of weight and pain.  Kiara now weighs 55 pounds and is very happy and acts like a 4 year old pup should, with some limitations.
