Clayton and Carol Paul Fund for Animal Welfare

The primary and only objective of this Fund is to provide monetary grants to:

  • animal humane societies,
  • animal shelters,
  • animal adoption agencies,
  • low-cost spay-neuter clinics,
  • individual wildlife rehabilitators,
  • as well as other deserving animal welfare organizations, in order to allow these volunteer organizations to use their enormous enthusiasm, drive and willingness to reduce animal suffering and homelessness through the monetary maintenance of their organizations where little or no monetary funds existed previously.
