How Can I Help?


Pluto’s wheelchair was made possible by generous donations to BFPS.

Because we are truly a no kill shelter and many of our dogs live out their natural lives with us, our veterinarian bills tend to be high. All of our funds are raised from private donations, mostly by generous individuals who care about dogs. Please note that because we are run almost entirely by volunteers, we have no administrative costs associated with running the shelter. All donations go directly to the care of our dogs. We desperately need your help to continue our mission of rescuing and sheltering homeless dogs. Please consider a monetary donation to help us in our efforts.

Currently, we are responsible for 100 dogs, of all ages and sizes, all of whom would make wonderful companions and are looking for good homes.  In order to continue our work, we need help. There are several ways you can do that:
