Our Roots

Donna DeBerardinis and Jenny Aaronson created this Non Profit Organization in February 2014 to help cure the Parvovirus infected Puppies. She was very successful in this en devour and went on to start a Spay and Neuter program which assisted those in need. In 2019, when her interests became stronger as a Caregiver for the Senior Community, she generously transferred Be Paws We Care (BPWC) to Julie Raming and Dave Patrick so that her dream of helping animals in need would continue.

Currently, BPWC assists in raising funds so the Homeless Pets of Pickens County can get the medical care they need to prepare them for their forever Family.  Kelly Ingram is our Rescue Coordinator to help facilitate the rehoming of our homeless pets and Suzanne Champitto serves as our Fundraising Chairman.  We also hope to implement a Spay and Neuter Program  to help reduce the overpopulation within this County.

Hope Is Where the Heart Is.... and our Hearts are with the Homeless Pets . We Strive to give them a Second Chance at life



Partnering with Volunteers Supporting the Pickens County Animal Shelter

At Be-Paws We Care, Inc., we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in helping our Homeless Pets thru our network of Volunteers but also through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.


At the beginning of 2019, the all-volunteer team at Be-Paws We Care, Inc. began its journey in response to 7 dogs testing positive for Heartworms at the Pickens County Animal Shelter.  The COSTS associated with Heartworm Treatment as well as many other medical issues are outside the County’s budget, so many of these homeless pet would go without the proper medical attention. This became our MISSION, to provide the medical support for these Homeless Pets and also to help them find their forever homes through partnering with the PCA Shelter and various rescue.

To date, through the generous donations from our community, we have been able to treat 17 heartworm positive dogs and were able to address medical issues of over 50+ homeless pets. Over 150+ pets have been successfully adopted or sent to a rescue for adoption through our networking with other Rescues and the Pickens County Animal Shelter.

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.
