Happy PAWS Haven, a no-kill, no-kennel, spay and neuter Domestic Animal Shelter received the 501(c)3 Federal Non-profit Agency status in January 2002. Our Progressive Animal Welfare System (PAWS) concept is that we do not impound these wonderful creatures in an antiseptic, caged atmosphere, like that found in typical animal shelters. The dogs and cats are kept in a natural setting. They have the opportunity to roam in grassy paddocks and forested areas with oversight and control by our staff. When an animal arrives injured or sick they are quarantined and nurtured by caring human hands back to health.
We typically handle about 150 animals each year, a spay and neuter program, humane education for responsible pet care, obedience training, and a lost and found service for missing pets.
