Changes to PAWS services in light of COVID-19: We continue rescuing animals! Adoptions and foster by appointment only; clinic appointments available for sick pets; walk-in vaccine clinics suspended. Also, the Emergency Fund for PAWS has been launched to ensure we can keep doing our lifesaving work despite the current crisis.

Donations Welcome!

By providing things we use daily to care for animals, you can help us stretch our limited funds and save even more lives.

Donations can be dropped off at any PAWS location seven days a week during open hours (no need to call ahead). If you are unsure whether we can use your donations or to coordinate a large drop-off, please contact us. If you would like the chance to meet the animals you are helping, please plan your drop-off at either our Old City or Northeast adoption centers during open hours.

Many of these items can also be purchased through our Amazon Wishlist to be sent directly to our shelters. Thank you for your support!
