Big Catch Prize for ONE Lucky Winner!

1 in 972 chances of winning a 2023 Scout 175 Sportfish!

In honor of our 50th Anniversary year, Dorchester Paws is set out to raise $50k (net) from this raffle to help the animals of today and tomorrow.

2022 came with more challenges than our outdated shelter should face. The world has changed, times are harder than ever before for most, our community is being forced to surrender their pets at an unprecedented rate and our shelter has operated at max capacity for nearly the entire year. Our shelter will take in more than 4,000 animals this year, which is more than our shelter has ever taken in.

Donate today, to help save lives and give second chances. The animals of Dorchester County have nowhere to turn and need you more than ever. Be their voice.

One in 972 chances of winning, in honor of our 50th Anniversary of saving lives (1972-2022).

Raffle will be drawn on February 4th at 9 PM (EST) at our 23rd Annual Oyster Roast!
