Adoptable Animals

Home for the Holidays is a special adoption promotion designed to get our “Holiday Helpers” – those dogs and cats on Santa’s nice list who just need a little extra help getting noticed – into a warm and loving home for the Holidays. From November 18 through December 30, adoption fees on Holiday Helpers are lowered by 20 percent. We’ll be rotating each Holiday Helper onto our Featured Pets page until every last one is in a home of their own. And don’t forget to visit the Giving Trees in each of our shelter lobbies so you can purchase needed gifts for all the animals at PAWS.  

Take a look at the many wonderful animals for adoption at PAWS. Then come on in and we'll help you find your perfect match.

#GivingTuesday Results

GivingTuesday Thanks Article HP

Some days we're absolutely blown away by the generosity of our supporters. #GivingTuesday, was one of those days.

We received more than $44,000 in one day. These funds are going to work right now so dogs and cats can be in homes for holidays, and wild animals can receive the care they need to be returned to their natural habitat. On behalf of them all, thank you!
