Mission Statement

Partnership for Animal Welfare (PAW) is a non-profit group of volunteers chartered to facilitate the rescue and adoption of homeless domestic animals, mainly dogs and cats, and place them in loving and stable homes.


The group is funded by tax deductible donations and is run totally by volunteers. Adoption shows are held in the suburban Maryland area several times a month to allow prospective owners to meet with the animals and with volunteers.
