2023 Annual Partnership Program

Pawsperity, formerly known as The Grooming Project, would not be possible without the support of our community and generous donors, including businesses, individuals, and foundations. To help sustain the services we provide, we are launching the 2023 Annual Partnership program. This program is one in which our partners’ support helps us amplify our mission throughout the community, and we highlight each brand in unique ways throughout the year via publications, events, social media, and more.


Pawsperity has been awarded Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) tax credits through the Missouri Department of Economic Development. NAP credits allow eligible donors to contribute to Pawsperity while receiving a tax credit equal to 50% of their donation. This credit is in addition to the usual federal and state charitable deductions. These tax credits will go quickly! More information can be found here.
