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.

Testimonials

"I lost my mini Daschund on saturday 7/12 and searched for her for days, I was starting to lose hope when I received a call from a volunteer worker today. Thanks to PAWS she was located and returned to me! Thanks so much for all the help to locate my little doggie!"
- Elizabeth Brod

"The people from PAWS were very nice and helpful to me when my cat went missing. They posted an alert on their website right away, told me everyone to notify, sent people to my neighborhood to look for her, and even texted me regularly to see how I was doing. They are the ones that told me to wait until late in the middle of the night to go looking for her, which is how I found her. These are good people doing good work! If you have the extra time or money, please send it their way. They have more than earned it!"

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.
