Please Donate

We know you are aware that Prairie Paws Animal Shelter is dependent upon the generosity of its donors, people like you, people that truly recognize the service PPAS provides to not only Franklin County but to Miami County, parts of Johnson County, Douglas County, Osage County, Coffey County, Anderson County, and Linn County. We know you understand why it is necessary for us to ask the community to help sustain the lives of those animals within our care. Your contributions make a difference, through your generosity the day-to-day lives of these animals will include food, medical care, grooming and loving care; and it is through your assistance that PPAS can offer educational programs.

Honorarium and Memorials

Through a honorarium or a memorial, you can recognize loved ones with a gift that provides food, shelter and care for the animals Prairie Paws Animal Shelter serve each year. A Memorial is a personal remembrance that honors a deceased friend, relative, pet, or colleague. Memorials are a meaningful way to remember and pay tribute to a loved one who has passed away. A Honorarium Gift provides a meaningful, living tribute to a friend, relative, pet, or colleague by commemorating a special occasion. If provided the address of the honoree or the family of the memorialized we will send an acknowledgement letter to inform them of your thoughtful gift. Fill out the form here and then click the donate button.
