What’s HOT, What’s NOT

HOT: Adopting your new best friend at PAWS. Check our Adoption Services page often to see all the animals available for adoption.
NOT: Purchasing a companion animal from a pet store or breeder.

HOT: Carrying your wholesome groceries home in a new PAWS Riley Tote!
NOT: Choosing a flimsy plastic sack at the market. Many plastics cannot be recycled and will end up in a landfill.

HOT: Voicing your opinion to businesses about inhumane product experimentation on animals. Sign up for our Actionline e-newsletter and be a voice for animals!
NOT: Using personal care products tested on animals. Learn how to read the labels and find animal-friendly products by visiting

HOT: Staying warm and looking cool by donning a trendy faux fur or animal-patterned coat this winter.
NOT: Wearing real fur! Encourage your favorite stores to offer fashionable, sustainable and cruelty-free alternatives to fur and leather coats, shoes, bags and accessories.

HOT: Sealing any holes and affixing a chimney cap on your house this winter to keep wildlife from taking up residence.
NOT: Using cruel traps or poisons when humane preventative measures make co-existing with urban wildlife a cinch. See our Wildlife Resources page for more information.

HOT: Building a fun, escape-proof outdoor play enclosure for feline members of the family. Learn more about it.
NOT: Allowing Fluffy to roam freely to dodge cars and poisons while striking fear into the heart of wild birds.

HOT: Observing the wildlife who migrate to our area for the winter through your camera or binocular lenses. Learn more about the voyages of wild birds.
NOT: Watching animals who have been captured from the wild in order to entertain people at roadside zoos or circuses.
