How to Get Involved

Fund our work.

Make a donation to help New Life for Paws rescue and rehome as many Cunucus as possible.

New Life For Paws Foundation is a legally registered foundation in Aruba, and Aruba Flight Volunteers is a registered 501(c)(3) in the United States. As a qualified charitable organization, donations may be tax-deductible, please speak to your tax advisor for further details.

Send supplies.

With so many stray and neglected animals on the island, New Life for Paws is continuously in need of supplies that help our rescues get closer to their ‘furever’ homes. We have a registered Wishlist on Amazon so you can select and send any item(s) straight to our team.

Become a foster.

Provide a safe and loving home for our rescues while they await their ‘furever’ families. This is an extremely rewarding part of our mission, and we always need people to care for the puppies until they are ready to fly or meet their new families. We provide the food and necessary supplies – and you supply the time and love! If you think you can do this and would like to help, please submit a Foster Application. For more information on our foster program, review this document.

Become a Flight Volunteer.

If you are departing Aruba for a destination in the United States, you can help bring a puppy closer to their ‘furever’ home by accompanying them on their flight off the island. New Life for Paws will coordinate the logistics of transportation and provide all necessary documents – the puppy’s plane ticket, valid health certificate, proof of microchipping, vaccination records, etc. Please submit a Flight Volunteer Application if you are interested in becoming a Flight Volunteer! Have your date of travel, airline, and flight number ready, as well as how many traveling in your party can chaperone. (Chaperones are limited to one puppy per traveler.) Marie Geerman, the founder of the Aruba Flight Volunteer program, has created a podcast that can provide more detailed information about the process.


Our Facebook page and Instagram account is updated with photos and descriptions of rescues ready to be adopted now! If you see a rescue that makes your heart melt and think would make a great addition to your family, submit an Adoption Application. New Life for Paws will complete all requirements needed for them to travel home with you or a Flight Volunteer.
