Sponsored Pets


Every product ordered from YUCKY PUPPY--previously PawZaar--results in a donation to help sponsor a shelter pet. Along with special fundraising efforts such as our Pawliday Toy Drive and the fundraiser to help the Hurricane Harvey-stricken City of Port Aransas Animal Shelter, your purchases have sponsored these pets:

Current Sponsorship

Paulie the sponsored dog

Paulie the Warrior is our newest sponsored pet. This fellow is in the care of San Antonio's Animal Defense League of Texas as he waits for a forever home.


Why his unusual name? Because Paulie IS a warrior. Paulie was brought to the shelter after being hit by a car. He's had a long road to recovery but the shelter says he's never lost his goofy spirit and joy for life--and now he's ready for a family of his own!

Dolly is a two-time resident at the Animal Defense League of Texas and our newest sponsored pet. She was adopted after a stay in 2015...but then was recently found again as a stray. She remained at the ADL until she found a new forever home!



The San Antonio Animal Defense League shared that the couple who adopted this big cutie recently lost their 15-year-old cat to health issues so this adoption marked a very special time. According to ADL, “Gengar is going home to a large house and with a screened-in porch where he can enjoy the outside without being at risk for danger. Gengar was so loved that there was a line of employees waiting for the chance to say goodbye!”



Beautiful Gwen was in the care of San Antonio's Animal Defense League of Texas. According to the shelter, "I am a little shy when meeting new friends, but if you come up to me to show me, love, I will show you love right back!" Gwen quickly found her fur-ever family!


Seven-year-old Jody was in the care of the Animal Defense League of Texas...and she has been adopted! The rescue told us, "Everyone’s favorite cat Jody found her forever home finally on Sunday Feb. 18, 2018. She went home with a wonderful young lady who had another cat waiting for a friend."

Since that time, Olaf has found his forever home!

Well, less than a month after our sponsorship, Ori found a new forever dad. Congratulations, Ori!
