PAWS is a registered non-profit organization which is dedicated to the protection and the promotion of humane treatment of all animals.
We are a volunteer-based organization.
Our main work is to educate and disseminate information concerning animal welfare, animal care, animal control, and other animal-related concerns.
PAWS campaigns actively against animal cruelty and pet neglect, including activities like dogfights, horsefights, and wild animals being used for entertainment.
PAWS also runs an animal shelter called PARC (PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center). It currently houses over 300 cats and dogs rescued from cruelty or neglect. Here, these animals are rehabilitated in the hope of finding them new homes and a second chance at a good life.
There is also a low-cost clinic that provides veterinary services to the indigent community, including spay and neuter (kapon).
In addition to caring for animals, our staff and volunteers attend to an average of :

Did you know?
In 1986, PAWS spearheaded the campaign for the Republic Act 8485 or the Animal Welfare Act of the Philippines. However, the government was not ready for it at that time. A revised Animal Welfare Bill was drawn up and diligently pursued by PAWS in the Senate and in Congress.
On February 11, 1998, the Animal Welfare Act of 1998 (also known as Republic Act 8485 was signed into law by then Philippine President Fidel V. Ramos.
PAWS also lobbied for Republic Act 9482, also known as the Anti-Rabies Act of 2007. It calls for the prevention and control of rabies through education, field control and disposition of stray and unvaccinated dogs, pre-exposure treatment and post-exposure treatment of animal bite victims, mass vaccination of dogs, and responsible pet ownership.
After months of lobbying, it was signed into law by former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in May 25, 2007.
