Our Story

Angels4Paws was started by a core group of volunteers who met whilst dedicating their spare time at the local community shelter. We all come from different backgrounds but our love and commitment to these souls brought us together. We have been volunteering at the same shelter for the past 3-5 years when we finally decided to take it to the next level and maximize the benefits we hope to bring to the dogs and cats during their shelter stay.


Our approach and strategy are to collaborate with existing rescues, shelters, and even boarding businesses with the goal to maximize our impact in helping save as many dogs and cats as possible from euthanization and enhance their stay at the shelters to ultimately make them more adoptable. Additionally, we are always looking to expand our network of volunteers to help us foster rescued pets, on their way to finding them a forever-loving family and home.

Our Mission

Angels 4 Paws’ mission is to enhance the lives of animals at the shelters and save precious souls by placing them in foster care while actively seeking permanent and loving homes.


The Team

Trinon Carter

A lifelong dog lover, I’m a local middle school teacher who has been volunteering to walk shelter dogs for the past 3 years. I became interested in building a rescue as animals in need hold a special place in my heart.

My love for animals was inherited from my parents at a very young age. My passion is to make a difference in the lives of shelter animals and I truly believe in the importance of animal welfare as it relates to our society.

My connection to animals has always been there but it flourished when I started volunteering to walk dogs at the local shelter. My dream would be realized when we reach a zero kill rate at shelters nationwide, starting with California.

Also a middle school teacher, I love seeing households excited about adding a new family member. I believe pets help children to develop responsibility and enriches their family experiences.
