As a founder, Laura stated "I joined six other motivated women and worked with them to develop Paw Philanthropy. Here we are building our dream to reach out to dog lovers on Facebook, Instagram, and the internet to help pet owners with medical bills through donations and fundraisers.

“Focusing  on our paw pals, Paw Philanthropy is dedicated to improving their  quality of health and wellness.  We hope to show caring attitudes  towards dogs that may need our help and to promote their quality of life  with their families by sharing love.”   Laura Wagner, Secretary
