Ways to help:
Behind The Scenes
Assist with facility upkeep, application processing, and more. Or do you have a special skill or talent to share? There are endless ways to help the animals! By supporting PAWS’ staff, you’ll enable us to accomplish more and save lives faster.
PAWS volunteers care for shelter cats by providing socialization, feeding, cleaning litter, and more. Providing them with simple comforts like keeping their living spaces clean helps them stay content while they wait for adoption.
Walk dogs, help them practice their manners and good behavior, provide enrichment activities like group walks and yard play. You’ll keep them happy and healthy in the shelter, and also set them up for success in new homes!
Represent PAWS at off-site public adoption events, introduce animals to potential adopters, raise funds for our lifesaving efforts, and spread the word about what we do! We hold hundreds of adoption and fundraising events throughout the year in various locations in the city and beyond. These incredibly important opportunities depend on positive, outgoing volunteers to make them happen.
