The Story 
Cinnamon adopted a small dog who she named Titan. When she brought him home, she had quickly realized that he was very sick. She took him to the Veterinary Emergency and found that he had pneumonia. The Veterinarian did not know if he would live. In order to save his life, the vet bill was $3000.oo. It was then that she had to make a decision, and took a gamble on his life. At that time, she didn't have that much money, but was fortunate to borrow the money from her mother. 
She made a promise to Titan that if he lived, she would give him the best life and have lots of small dog friends to play with. After his long battle fighting for his life, he began to grow healthy and strong and Cinnamon fulfilled her promise to him and started Tiny Paws small dog play group on April 14, 2013. He was very happy playing with a small handful of small dog friends, but the unthinkable happened.......the small dog play group GREW! Five years later with over 550 members, it was at that moment that Cinnamon wanted to make a huge impact and take Tiny Paws to the next level.  What was once a small dog play group, is now Tiny Paws Fresno, a nonprofit corporation 501(c)(3) helping the  community.

Our mission is to stop small dogs from experiencing mental anguish and physical harm by bringing together small dogs to experience positive and beneficial socialization skills, fun, and exercise. We emphasize the benefits of Health & Wellness by offering education and helpful services to the community. 
Tiny Paws Fresno's goals is to assist dog owners through our programs such as: Small Dog Play Group, Small Dog Coat Drive, Providing helpful Resources about canine Health & Wellness, Titan Vet Bill Assistance Fund, Diamond Foster Care Aid Fund, and Tiny Paws Fresno's Small Dog Foster Care.​​

Tiny Paws Fresno wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the participation of the small dogs.
They all have their special personalities, and dedicated themselves to their dog duties to help the community.
