Adopting A Friend

We want to help you find the pet that is right for your household and lifestyle. We encourage you to come and visit with several of our animals, take the dogs out for a walk, spend some time with any animal you are thinking about adopting. You can come and play with the dogs and cats anytime we are open. The adoption fee includes the spay/neuter, 1st shots, Rabies vaccination, flea/tick treatment and worming. We take the best care of the animals while they are in our care to ensure you will be bringing home a healty pet!

Who We Are

Needy Paws Animal Shelter, an extension of the River Valley Humane Society, has been providing sanctuary for sick, injured, homeless and abused animals since 1997.

The shelter cares for 800-1000 animals annually; this means that there are many animals at any given time available for adoption. 

Our staff members, volunteers and board of directors, in coordination with local veterinarians, work together with the mission of " Saving dogs and cats throughout the River Valley by placing them into loving forever homes."

We currently work with PetSmart Charities to increase the opportunity for adoptions for our shelter animals.

Help us spread the word - Adoption is a wonderful option, Spay and Neuter IS the solution!

Thank you for helping us care for so many pets in need!
