To ensure animal abuse, neglect, cruelty, and suffering is reduced and or eradicated through public awareness, action, education and advocacy. We want to see those who commit animal abuse punished appropriately.
We have designed a program for elementary and junior high schools to educate students on the proper handing of animals to deter animal abuse.
People who commit acts of cruelty towards animals rarely stop there. Such cruelty is often a marker of a perpetrator with a higher tendency toward violence. For more information visit: https://ncovaa.org/facts/
Protecting Paws also helps with financial burden of animals abused and neglected when funds permit. We realize this is a burden for the rescue that agrees to take in the animal, so we are here to help them. The more we build up our funds, the more animals lives we will be able to help.
