Welcome to Project Pawsitivity! Launched in 2015, we aim to be your go to source for all things pet related, from pet care to awesome rescue groups to philanthropy and more!
Our goal is to bring about change to the shelter system in the United States. Currently, 3-4 million animals are euthanized in shelters each year. We want to help reduce that number through education as well as our website, Sitting for a Cause.
If you are a pet parent or pet care professional, be sure to sign up for a Sitting with a Cause account to help us save lives through pet care that gives back. Also, be sure to check back with us weekly for awesome articles on all things pets!
