We are excited to announce that we are now accepting cryptocurrency!

Your generous support will help save the 4,000 animals that walk through the doors of Dorchester Paws each year. Your donation will go towards animal care, medical treatments, special medical surgeries, and everything an animal needs before they are ready to be adopted!

We rely on YOUR donations to provide animals the opportunity for a second chance.

More details on donating cryptocurrency

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This means that Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other crypto donations is one of the most tax-efficient ways to support the animals of Dorchester Paws!

When you donate cryptocurrency to Dorchester Paws, we immediately convert your donation to fiat which means all donations are non-refundable.
