About Us

Founded in 2002, 4 Paws Forever is a private organization [and will always stay that way] with a mission to help privately funded “No-Kill” Humane Shelters and Rescue Organization. We started by offering custom items to our friends on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. In 2008, we relocated to Northern Nevada, the "Silver State" to concentrate on designing and creating the finest custom jewelry for animal lovers. All our pieces are original designs.  Our specialty is creating fine jewelry from your pet's actual paw print. We have created more handcrafted custom paw print jewelry than anyone else. We use the traditional methods of craftsmanship in everything we make for that extra special touch.  You can see and feel the difference!

We gathered numerous animal loving artists from around the country who have contributed their talents to the cause. All our jewelry and gifts are personalized and shipped from Northern Nevada. It is also important to note that 4 Paws Forever is the oldest organization planting trees in our National forests exclusively in honor of our beloved pets.  

True Story

Why do we create jewelry the same way it has been done for the past 5,000 years? Because one time it took an unbelievable five attempts to create a custom pendant from Charlie's paw print and we couldn’t figure out what was happening. We apologized to Charlie's owner. She said, "No worries, Charlie was always stubborn." There are many similar stories and because of that, we believe that there is a piece of your pet's spirit in everything we create. We would be honored to create a special piece just for you. 

Please let us help you find that perfect piece of jewelry or gift. Whether you choose a custom jewelry piece or one of our hand tuned wind chimes for a friend, you will not find a more dedicated group that will give you the superior quality and service that you deserve.


When you purchase a 4 Paws Forever Sympathy gift for someone, you have the comfort knowing that you have helped those animals less fortunate. 4 Paws Forever has deep roots in giving back. Our mission along with many of our partners is to help privately funded "No-Kill" Humane Shelters and Rescue Organizations whose principle source of funding comes from private donations. No organization is too small.
