Through your generosity, we are able to place animals in loving homes. Even the smallest donation helps!
Our volunteers are dedicated and hard-working people who have a passion for animals and making a difference.
We know you've always wanted a dog or cat, and now's the time friends! We are here to help you get ready for your new family member. Adopting an animal is, after all, one of the most gratifying things you can do.
Placing healthy animals with responsible and caring individuals is one of our most important goals.
Foster care is temporary care and shelter for one of our animals. This is one of the most needed volunteers!
We thought 2020 & 2021 was the most challenging years for us here at PAWS; we were wrong! 2022 has been one challenge and obstacle after another.
This makes the second year in a row that we have not been able to have our largest fundraiser of the year, and we are feeling it. Due to the spike in Covid cases in August in our area, we had to make the heartbreaking decision not to go forth with our Wine Tasting and Silent Auction. Not having this event has hurt us tremendously.
Prices have increased on food, medicine, vet bills, and all other supplies. Also, the number of animals needing lifesaving procedures has increased dramatically. Sadly what has not increased this year is money coming in to help these animals.
We realize this is a tough time for everyone, and hence that is why we are seeing record numbers of animals coming into our shelter needing our help. So many animals are coming through our doors, but so few funds to help them.
Almost every animal that has come through our doors has needed immediate medical attention. We made sure they received it.
We need your support and donations now more than ever; if we don't replenish our funds soon, we are unsure how
we will continue to help the animals that desperately need our help. Yes, the animals need us now more than ever!
