With your hand or paw, we will help thousands of pets. 

Shelters in Puerto Rico suffered greatly after hurricane Maria. Dame Una Patita (Give A Paw) is the result of the commitment between Pet Friendly and Pedigree Puerto Rico with the wellbeing of all homeless pets in the island.

Let’s get together and rebuild Puerto Rico’s shelters, because all dogs deserve a loving and safe home! 



Now, more than ever, local shelters need our help. 

Hurricane Maria affected in some way or another every pet shelter in Puerto Rico. Some lost it all. While many of the losses are immeasurable, together we can help them get back on their feet.

With hard work, we will make a difference in the lives of many, especially, the local shelter residents. 

Get to know more about the shelters.

How will we do it?
