PAWS (Providing Animals With Support) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill, volunteer animal rescue organization founded in 2002. We rescue animals who are scheduled to be euthanized due to lack of space at shelters. We place them into foster homes or at our adoption center and then into quality permanent homes. PAWS relies solely on donations and volunteers.
PAWS advocates the saving of lives in the animal community by rescuing those in need, promoting adoption and encouraging proper health care.
“Until they all have a home!”
Does PAWS take animals from the public?
PAWS will accept animals from the public, but only in unique circumstances. For example, abuse, orphaned newborns, a deceased owner, a highly adoptable breed, any non-aggressive animal previously adopted from PAWS, and litters of puppies or kittens on the condition that the mother be spayed. Our rehoming fee is $50. If you feel you have a unique circumstance, please call the PAWS Adoption Center at (435)688-9748.
I found a stray animal; can I take it to PAWS?
No, all strays need to go to appropriate municipal shelters to give their owners a chance to claim them. If they are unclaimed, then they will be placed for adoption.
