When you contribute to PAWS you do so much more than you think.

Whether we’re reuniting lost pets with their worried families, adopting homeless cats and dogs into new, loving homes, or giving sick or injured animals a second chance - your contribution is what makes it all possible.


Your generosity also helps provide affordable veterinary care to low-income pet owners, helps save hundred's of cats and dogs from high-kill southern shelters, provides food and supplies to pet owners in need, and provides a safe place for pets of individuals and families going through a crisis and need a safe place place for their pets until the crisis is over.
