Partners in Animal Welfare (PAW)
PAW was formed in 2022 to build upon the work of FOMTAS and respond more globally to identified unmet needs in the area of animal welfare.
Those needs include the dearth of funding for grassroots shelters, rescues and other animal welfare organizations as well as for owners/caretakers of pets with extraordinary medical needs; gaps in programming including the need for temporary sheltering of pets of victims of domestic violence and human trafficking while they seek stable housing, or victims of COVID during a hospital stay; and lack of awareness regarding animal welfare issues and the interconnectedness of animals, people and the planet.
PAW is incorporated as a New Jersey nonprofit corporation. PAW is working to secure (501)(c)(3) tax exempt-status with pro bono legal assistance from the law firm Lowenstein Sandler LLP and the Pro Bono Partnership. PAW is incredibly grateful to Lowenstein Sandler and PBP for their assistance!
Until PAW secures tax-exempt status, PAW operates under a fiscal agency agreement with FOMTAS such that all donations to FOMTAS earmarked for PAW are fully deductible to the extent permitted by law (EIN 45-4506433)
