Mission Statement

PAWS is a champion for animals--rehabilitating injured and orphaned wildlife, sheltering and adopting homeless cats and dogs, and educating people to make a better world for animals and people.


PAWS is people helping animals. We are the kind of people who delight in the company of an animal friend, who are awed by a majestic eagle in flight. Like you, we understand that animals enrich our lives. We also know they cannot speak for themselves and need protection. That is why PAWS brings together people like you to ensure animals are respected, safe and have a voice.

PAWS is a wonderful organization, with great values and a great purpose. Working with PAWS is not only good for the animals, it helps enrich human lives as well.

I LOVED my time as a dog walker at PAWS. Good exercise, nice people, and all the puppy snuggles a person could handle. The only downside was the pooper scooper duties. :)
