Thank you for contacting us!
“Concerned citizens” must not depend on PAWS or any other animal welfare organizations alone. Everyone must do their part.
Please note that PAWS cannot rescue all animals in distress.
There are thousands of starving and injured animals that need help, while the shelter has 1) very limited space, 2) very limited number of caretakers and volunteers, and 3) strict quarantine protocols.
Newly admitted animals are placed in quarantine to ensure that disease does not spread within our facility. Our quarantine area is almost always at full capacity, unless people agree to foster or provide a temporary home to these animals until they can be admitted.
