To support members of the public struggling to cover the cost of required, medically necessary veterinary care for their animals, PAWS aims to subsidize veterinary-recommended medical care for animal companions in need.
To enable families to remain safe and together over the long term, PAWS supports those who are fleeing violence or are temporarily unable to care for their animal companions by subsidizing the cost of medical care, where this care is a prerequisite for the animal finding safety (as spay/neuter, up-to-date vaccinations and a base level of stable health are a requirement for any animal entering a shelter, foster care or kennel).
PAWS aims to encourage access to essential veterinary care for all members of the public, and provide community agencies with the tools and resources to connect their clients with animal companions to the right services. Through partnerships with veterinary clinics and community agencies, PAWS aims to improve the welfare of animal companions across Ontario.
