Puddin is a Core Paws pup with our partner, Heath's Haven, in Idaho. She was hit by a car and paralyzed, requires her bladder to be expressed 3 times daily. She's a total love bug!

About

Are you a creative story teller? Do you love interpreting information, writing and animals? Have you blogged before, understand grammar/flow and want to help hard to place animals gain awareness? Then our Blogger volunteer role may be perfect for you!

A crucial need at Core Paws is to continue to strengthen our national brand awareness with written content displayed on our Blog and in our monthly newsletter. Consistent, informative, stigma-breaking content is required for Core Paws’ content marketing to succeed in its mission. You can help make that happen wherever you are in the continental U.S. with just a laptop and about 4 hours per month.

ABOUT US

We believe that every dog and cat, no matter their age, medical need, or behavioral issue, deserves a loving forever home. But they tend to be overlooked in shelters and rescues across the country. Core Paws showcases these special animals on a central website, to help them find their perfect family.
