PAWS of Southwest Virginia (People for Animal Wellness and Safety) is a non-profit, 501.c3 tax-exempt rescue group dedicated to rescuing unwanted and abandoned animals in our area and to promoting a neuter & spay program that will reduce the number of animals euthanized by our local shelters.

Our funds are used to assist in providing assistance with spaying and neutering animals we adopt and to provide veterinary and physical care of our foster animals. We are a group of volunteers; we have no formal facilities; and we depend solely on donations.

We work in conjunction with the Wise and Dickenson County Animal Shelters in Southwest VA to encourage the adoption of shelter pets and to educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets.


We charge no adoption fee; however, we do ask for a donation at the time of adoption, typically $50 for cats and $100 for dogs. Animals are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, with the exception of animals that have not reached age for sterilization (puppies/kittens). Owners who adopt an animal that has not been spayed/neutered will receive a voucher for this cost to be used for the Margaret B. Mitchell Spay/Neuter Clinic located in Bristol, VA. We work hard to ensure that animals are placed in loving, suitable homes, and we provide adoption applications/agreements as well as foster applications/agreements to assist with this goal.
