PAWS programs support those fleeing violence or temporarily unable to care for their animal companions by subsidizing the cost of veterinarian care that is a prerequisite for the animal finding safety. Spay/neuter, up-to-date vaccinations and a base level of stable health are a requirement for animals entering a shelter, foster care or kennel.
PAWS helps people in distress keep their pets – safe and healthy too!
