GoDaddy Should Be #NoDaddy

2014 was quite a year for CharityPaws! We launched our Beta test in May with the group HeARTs Speak - they were kind enough to be our "guinea pigs" so to speak so we can work out the kinks of what we hoped to do and because of their active participation - their first...

Can Your Website Impact Your Donations?

User Experience - that is a term well used in the web design and development industry, but one not many animal charities think much about. Because animal charities have limited funds to start with - the last thing they can do is worry about the website structure and...

Cat Names – Do They Affect Adoption Rates?

Relief For Brock – What A Service Dog Can Provide

Reasons To Not Adopt A Pit Bull!

As we continue our partnership with Pibbles & More Animal Rescue for a t shirt fundraiser, we thought it was appropriate to note some reasons that one should not adopt a pit bull! Pit bulls are not the right dog for everyone - and we want to be sure you know what...

So You Really Just Want Us To Make Money For You?

The Numbers Prove It – Animals Are Worth It!
