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 has launched a capital campaign to construct a campus with purpose-built animal care facilities and expanded wildlife, companion animal, and human education programs. In 2014, PAWS purchased 25 acres outright as a result of strict fiscal policies implemented by the Board of Directors to ensure the new campus would be built. The capital campaign has surpassed 70 percent of the philanthropic goal and continues to gain momentum. In 2021, we will enter the public phase of the campaign to complete the project - allowing PAWS to help even more cats, dogs, and wild animals get the critical care they need to go home and thrive..
