Craig J Mohnacky DVM established the “Helping Paws Foundation” representing the most aggressive service initiative in the San Diego community targeting military men and women. Helping Paws is a philanthropic platform in support of military families so healthy choices can be made about the care and treatment of their pets. This includes promoting healthy pet lifestyles such as spay/neuter, vaccinations, micro-chipping and offering financial assistance so no family is ever confronted with the choice of premature relinquishment because of economic consideration; worse yet economic euthanasia. By establishing trusting relationships and partnerships within our community, Helping Paws shall become an essential resource in support of our fine military families.

Dr. Mohnacky, the recipient of the prestigious 10News Leadership Award, was recognized for his dedicated service in support of our military.

Other awards include:
• Henry Schein Cares Award
• Lead San Diego Visionary Award
• San Diego Military Advisory Council (SDMAC) service award


Helpings Paws is located at 2250 S Escondido Blvd. Suite 104 Escondido, CA 92025
