Would you recommend Pet Adoption Alternative of Warren?

by Maggie M. from Warren, MI (February 6, 2014)
They save the cats and dogs from Hazel Park animal shelter and other places. The animals are well cared for and are given their shots, neutered/sprayed, and microchipped. You can opt to foster to adopt, which makes sure you are compatible with your new pet. I love working here and loving all the cats.

I volunteer for P.A.A.W. from time to time with special events and I could not be more proud of what they do. They work very hard to help homeless animals find forever homes. They try to give each and every animal the best chance at a life outside the shelter by having them neutered/spayed, up-to-date on shots, providing training and thoroughly reviewing their potential adopters situation before they release them. I will continue to volunteer for them as often as I can.

This organization has very nice people working for them. It was easy for me to help them out because it was not difficult to learn where everything is and what to do. I enjoyed the experience and have volunteered there twice. Both times it was for school, but P.A.A.W. was very helpful and they were kind. Besides it is fun watching cats play around and petting them.
