People helping pets...Pets helping people. This is what PAWS strives to provide to our community with our many programs.

During 2015/16, the PAWS Cats Adoption Program sheltered 373 cats and kittens, including transfers from "high-kill" area shelters. Of those, 371 cats/kittens found forever loving homes and 8 hard to place senior cats who found loving care as permanent fosters in the PALS (Pets and Loving Seniors) program. During the fall, the PALS program placed our first two dogs into a permanent foster home; providing vaccination, spay/neuter and necessary care.

PAWS provides Veterinary Financial Assistance to low-income seniors to help with pet care necessities; 61 low-income seniors with $5,279.40 in veterinary care for their pets as well as provided financial aid to spay/neuter 86 dogs and cats at a cost of $5,542.80. Thirty-one senior citizens received discounts to their adoption fees and 20 lost or abandoned pets received $3,031.69 in care.

Twenty-four kittens from six feral litters were socialized and found forever, loving homes. PAWS houses the humane traps that allow the trap, neuter and release of adult cats thus stopping the circle of unwanted animals in our community.
