The definition of animal cruelty includes not providing proper shelter, weather protection, proper air and proper space; and aggravated animal cruelty involves beating, mutilating, torturing and killing an animal.

Retail pet stores will be required to post inspection reports on or near cages if the animals are from a breeder.

People with at least six unspayed femaled animals used for breeding will be required to have a kennel license. Previously, the number was 15 or more, or if the person sells six or more litters a year.

The maximum amount allowed in damages for someone who causes injury or death to a pet has increased from $7,500 to $10,000.

Who we are

We are a nationally recognized Nonprofit Charity, 501(c)(3), focused on pets and community animals.
47-1824249 Cause for Paws Cares Inc.

What we do

We interact and work with the City of Bowie Animal Control, Prince George's Animal Management, veterinarians and animal hospitals, animal adoption and shelter centers and local residents for animal wellness, protection, rescue, and adoption.

We do compassion.

Why join us

The cost to taxpayers is staggering.  By helping us, the taxpayer burden is reduced.

Education on community animals is virtually non-existent. Our education and outreach programs impact lives - both animal and human.

Seniors, families with reduced and little income, neighbors and friends, are surprisingly not aware of  help close-by or feel shame in asking.  Our assistance is deeply passionate and far reaching.

Help Us Care for the Animals!

Every little bit helps! Your donation may be tax deductible, we are a 501(c)(3)   DONATE to Cause for Paws Cares, Inc.
