The Portneuf Animal Welfare Society, established in 2004, has been administering animal rescue services across Bannock, Bingham and Power counties for over 8 years. Whether providing food, shelter, or medical care for abandoned and neglected cats and dogs, rescuing livestock from abusive owners, or helping to limit the profusion of feral colonies, the several volunteers of PAWS dedicate their collective time and energy to promote the health, safety and welfare of the areas large and small animals in need.
PAWS is a non-profit organization depending entirely upon donations raised through private contributions and an annual yard sale of donated items. Pet food costs alone exceed $500/month with an additional $3,000/month in veterinary expenditures, pharmaceuticals and boarding.
A MEMO FROM THE STAFF
As cute and irresisable as these playful companions are,there remain literally hundreds of unneutered feral and domestic cats and dogs in our area alone and those numbers are continually on the rise.PAWS volunteers have taken great pleasure in fostering and placing young kittens, cats and dogs but the reality remains, for every one successfully placed adoption, countless others languish in hopeless despair.Starvation, disease and exposure are cruel bedfellows.Please patronize our shelters and animal welfare organizations by adopting locally and by having your pet spayed or neutered. Enrich your life. Call to adopt a pet today.
