It's hard knowing what to do when you're about to adopt. But, we make this process even easier when you adopt with us, because we have trained staff that will go over every possible question or concern you and your family might have on introducing your newest pal to the family.


PAWS has a variety of animals available - adults and youngsters - and sometimes purebred animals. We screen all of our animals for temperament and sound health before adopting them out. When animals are relinquished by owners we are able to obtain a thorough history.


Adoption Fees: $135 for dogs and $85 for cats

PAWS animals are dewormed, spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.
