The Philosophy of P.A.W.S.


  • Spay/Neuter
  • Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)
  • Promote legislation to raise the bar of entry for breeders
  • Provide second chances for homeless pets
  • Match animals up with compatible homes
  • Promote adoption events in the community to expose homeless animals to people who may not yet realize they need a pet


  • Provide loving homes for hard to adopt animals awaiting adoption
  • Promote legislation which improves the lives of all animals regardless of type (companion, service, lab, livestock, wildlife)
  • Improve community welfare by bringing animal companionship to individuals such as seniors and students, that are unable to have animals of their own
  • Support cruelty and welfare investigative efforts


  • Provide placement services for people unable to continue to care for their animals, whatever the reason
  • Low-cost animal services such as micro-chipping and spay/neuter
  • Humane Education to improve the welfare of animals

Much like our furry friends, we need all four paws on the ground.  The more limbs we 'lose' the less agile we become and the harder it will be to get where we wish to be.
