Thankful Paws helps people understand the Human-Animal Bond.
Thankful Paws was founded in 2011 as a Maryland 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Since then the food bank has delivered over 75 tons of pet food and supplies to our clients! We have also received two Governor Citations as well as numerous community awards and recognition for our charitable work with the pet food bank. Thankful Paws was Maryland's first mobile pet food bank, and showcased the need for all other pet food banks that followed. It was through this trailblazing experience that we discovered the need for increased awareness about the value that pet food banks provide not just for the pets we feed, but also for the humans in their life.
We have recently expanded our services to include therapy dog management and an annual walkathon for Cushing's Disease Research.
