Happy Tails ~ Homes Found at PAWS!


PAWS new shelter that started operation in January 2004 averaged over 50 adoptions in 2007! We are so happy with our new location and just lack some rennovation to make the shelter even better. PAWS is a non-profit, 501( c) 3 humane organization that cares for homeless animals in our community. We are located at 1103 E. Kingshighway (Highway 412) just 1/2 miles east of the overpass. We invite you to stop by and visit us during shelter hours. Current hours are Wednesday-Friday 9 a.m-1 p.m and Saturday from 11 a.m. till 4 p.m. To surrender an animal arrangements must be made in advance to guarantee shelter space is available. We are currently not in-taking any animals due to shelter improvements and reconstruction. Messages will be returned as soon as possible. When surrendering an animal PAWS will request a donation as we receive no local or government funding. Please visit us when you are thinking of adopting a pet. Our adoption fee covers that the pet will be spayed or neutered, rabies shot, vaccinated, heartworm tested, wormed, and given flea & tick preventative. PAWS is raising money to improve our shelter and provide our shelter pets with a healthy environment. PAWS will continue to provide humane education and a discount spay/neuter program to help end the cycle of unwanted litters. Click here to visit our website.
