Pawssum supports pet adoption and is happy to back this course, to help give animals a second chance.
“Pawssum was founded with the goal of bridging the gap between pet owners and convenient veterinary care, and we are excited to partner with a nonprofit organization like Pound Paws that shares our modern approach for caring for pets.
