Any animal we come across who finds themselves without a home will not go hungry or unloved. When funds and space allow, Street Paws will take the homeless animal under our wing, notify the proper authorities, network them and try to find them a new home. We will care for and provide comfort and aid to homeless pets in a variety of ways. If the animal is tame, we will network to find a home for them. If the animal is feral, we will feed and care for the animal in their own environment. Every action will be taken to provide the animal(s) with a proper diet and bedding. Spaying and neutering these ferals is of great importance to us. We will do what we can to ensure the feral population will be kept to a minimum. We also seek to educate pet owners about the importance of spaying and neutering, annual vaccinations and the importance of a true commitment to their pet as a family member to help ensure their pet does not become another homeless statistic as well.
We work to reduce animal population through spay/neuter. Promote responsible pet ownership including vaccinations and humane education and seek suitable homes for unwanted and neglected animals.
The purpose of Street Paws, Inc. is to work with local county animal control shelters, county government and other animal groups for the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals, including the reduction of animal overpopulation through spay/neuters and publicizing the benefit thereof; promote responsible pet ownership including vaccinations, improve the lives of animals living on the streets, provide humane education to the citizenry and foster a healthy relationship between people and animals.
Street Paws, Inc. shall assist to house homeless, neglected and abused animals, provide veterinary care, seek suitable homes for animals without owners; support local shelters to maximize reclaims, adoptions and foster opportunities, to reduce euthanasia, transfer animals to other licensed animal rescue groups; and provide euthanasia when necessary. These animals are surrendered or given to Street Paws, Inc. by their owners, animal shelters, Humane Societies, and other persons.
Street Paws, Inc. is out on the streets daily taking a progressive, proactive approach to establishing a permanent resolution to the stray companion animal problem through dedicated rescue efforts, sheltering, community outreach programs, education, collaborations, and the encouragement of responsible pet guardianship.
