Who We Are

The Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is a private, nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter that was established in 1979. Our mission is to provide loving, humane care and housing for unwanted, abused, and neglected dogs and cats until permanent homes can be found. We provide medical and surgical treatment for all animals under our care.
