Pound Paws is an Australian based charity, founded by Brittany Bloomer which provides a modern online approach to the overall re-homing process.
Brittany launched Pound Paws as a passion project in high school, after regularly volunteering at local animal shelters & hosting fundraisers for local rescue groups.
Her combined love for animals and experience in Media Communications, Events, Social Media, IT & PR has helped accelerate this charity to actively re-home pets all over Australia.
She was shocked when she found out that a devastating 250,000 healthy and treatable dogs and cats are put down per year, due to mass breeding and people being uneducated about puppy mills.
Pound Paws is not only focused on re-homing these animals, but educating the public about the dangers of buying from a pet shop. The charity hosts dog adoption events monthly around Australia and also launches nation-wide viral campaigns, to raise awareness about the importance of choosing to #ADOPTNOTSHOP
