Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS NY)

  • 404 people are interested
Logo

Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS NY) is a grassroots, volunteer-driven organization. If you enjoy spending time with both people and pets, we offer wonderful opportunities for our volunteers (18 years old or older) to provide direct services to our clients, mainly through our Housecall Program. Volunteers provide help with things such as dog walking, litter box maintenance, transportation to/from the vet, and other pet-related tasks our clients struggle to do on their own.

In order to begin providing services, all volunteers are required to attend an orientation. We are flexible in terms of the level of commitment, and welcome all interested individuals to attend an orientation session to learn more about our work. You will learn more about PAWS NY and the services you will ultimately provide to our clients.

Although many of our volunteer services are currently suspended, it is vital that we onboard as many volunteers as possible now to service what we expect to be a growing number of people who need our help in the future. We're currently offering virtual volunteer orientations. We hope you'll join us!

Mission Statement

The mission of PAWS NY is to preserve, support, and nurture the human-animal bond for New York City’s most vulnerable residents. Our programs help keep pets in their homes while protecting and promoting the bond that is so physically and psychologically valuable to our clients. Thus, our motto: helping people by helping pets.

Description

Our services enable people and pets to stay together through thick and thin.

Housecall Program: This is our core program through which PAWS NY provides on-site home visits to our clients. Visits may include: dog walking, litter maintenance, provision of food and water, transportation to/from the vet, and grooming. We can also provide emergency and/or foster care if an existing client unexpectedly finds himself in the hospital.

PAWS Pet Pantry: PAWS NY partners with food banks and food delivery services, and distributes pet food and supplies on a limited basis to people who are having trouble buying food for their pets. We evaluate each client on a case-by-case basis and offer services accordingly.

Referral Network: In addition to offering information and services directly, we often find situations where we can assist clients or other interested individuals by helping them access other community resources. As such, we make referrals to organizations that provide relevant free or low-cost services.
