MO4PAWS is an awe-inspiring organization and I am so grateful to be a part of the team! Before my involvement in MO4PAWS, I really didn't have a complete grasp that thousands of dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters on a daily basis. Monica is so knowledgeable about the high-kill animal shelter system and does a great job of educating others. She has built an incredible team of passionate individuals who are animal lovers and truly want to make a difference through educating and advocating.

Mo4PAWS is a truly worthy organization devoted to saving dogs and cats from the pound. We really enjoyed our time seeing all of these precious creatures at the opening event. The dogs were so playful and the cats were so adorable. Monica, the founder, truly has a heart of gold.

Go 4 MO4PAWS!

Mo4Paws is an incredible organization that truly ticks because of it's amazing founder, Monica Wiesener. I've known Monica for over 20 years and her passion for animal rescue has been part of her life since we were kids. She has a heart of gold and will do everything it takes to save at risk animals while raising awareness through her rescue and adoption events.

I'd like to mention that Mo4Paws is going beyond saving at risk animals and working to find ways to help reform the entire shelter system.

Support Mo4Paws and help our best furry friends!!

MO4PAWS is not just your average animal rescue group. On top of saving at-risk animals and coordinating incredibly well-run rescue and adoption events, MO4PAWS is constantly working on finding new ways to positively impact and reform the shelter system.
Our founder, Monica, has a heart of gold as well as the mind and drive to improve the process by which homeless animals can find homes. She has put together a stellar team of animals lovers who will stop at nothing to save any animal in need. From the nitty gritty of facing the run down shelters to rescuing animals off the street to working together with other rescue groups to find the right fit for each animal, MO4PAWS is the group to turn to for all volunteers and prospective pet owners.
The future is bright for this nonprofit and the furry friends linked to it!

I have been extremely impressed with the impact MO4PAWS has been able to make on the community. They are doing a fantastic job getting their message out about saving the lives of companion animals, and finding them forever homes. All the members of the organization, specifically the president and founder, Monica Wiesener, are fully dedicated to their mission, and work to be the voices for animals who can not speak for themselves. I have personally had the opportunity to attend adoption events hosted by the organization, and have organized a lecture with the Junior League of San Francisco for Monica to spread awareness about their cause. This organization strives to better the world around us, and though active social media, local events, and strong lobbying efforts, they have done a wonderful job getting their message out there.

Mo4Paws is truly a "from the heart" nonprofit. Its founder, Monica, has had a passion for helping animals in need since she was a child. Everyone who is involved with this organization has a heart of gold - is always ready to assist in any way possible - and truly makes working with them, in any capacity (assisting as a volunteer at the events, fostering an animal, or adopting one of their rescued pups) a true joy and seamless process. Truly suggest donating and getting involved with this organization if you are an animal lover. I have worked with them when I found a dog on the street and my conscious would not let me leave her at a kill shelter - Monica and her team assisted in getting the shot cared for until we found her a suitable home since her owners could not be found and she was not chipped... I have and also have attended their events - first class organization.

I was able to volunteer with this amazing organization at an event they had in Calabasas. I love animals and love to help them in any way possible. With this organization I was able to do just that by interacting with the animals there and going out to advoacte on their behalf. They told us the story of this dog they had rescued days before he was scheduled to be put down, luckily with their help they were able to find a great home for him. They really are a wonderful organization that works tirelessly to help rescue animals in need and are strong advocates for the rights of animals everywhere.
