Mission Statement

Prairie Paws Animal Shelter is a private 501 C3 non-profit shelter operating by the same philosophy under which it was established over 50 years by our founder Beatrice Martin Peck. Though the tireless efforts of our staff and volunteers Prairie Paws Animal Shelter is dedicated to our Mission: · Give aid and comfort to animals · Educate the community in responsible pet ownership · Help reunite pets with owners · Provide pet adoptions · Create a safer community

Description

Our Founder Beatrice Martin Peck began advocating for the welfare of Franklin County’s homeless animals in the early 1940’s and continued to do so until her death in 1967. She founded the Franklin County Humane Society in 1946 and, through her own expense and effort, opened what is known today as the Bea Martin Peck Animal Shelter on the 19th of June 1949. Beatrice and her group of faithful supporters investigated reports of cruelty towards animals in the community, housed and cared for animals needing assistance, and established an adoption program for the community-all the while creating a living legacy that remains today. Prior to her efforts, the stray or otherwise unwanted animals were used for medical testing and had no voice. Beatrice’s efforts led to the enactment of many ordinances and regulations regarding animal care that remain today.

The Prairie Paws Animal Shelter still a private, non-profit shelter operating by the same philosophy under which it was established over 50 years ago through the tireless efforts of its staff and volunteers. Prairie Paws Animal Shelter will never euthanize for space and all animals are given a second chance at finding their perfect families. A new facility was built in 2010 at 3173 HWY K 68, Ottawa, KS 66067. The old facility still stands at 230 W 19th St. Ottawa, KS 66067 and is not operational.
