PAWS has developed programs designed to to promote humane treatment of all animals. Our 5 main programs below aim to end pet homelessness through spay/neuter (kapon) initiatives.
The PAWS Fetch & Fix Program aims to end the cycle of homelessness for the pets of people with limited means. It will allow them to take better care of their pets without worrying about accidental litters.
Kapon outreach activities are organized with the help and cooperation of your LGU as well as sponsors who are willing to cover the cost of drugs and medical supplies as well as transportation, food and lodging of our vets and volunteers (if applicable).
“Kapon for All Pets” is a partnership between PAWS and participating LGUs. The program seeks to provide free or affordable kapon for pets owned by their constituents.
PAWS works hand in hand with International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) in carrying out search and rescue of animals immediately following disasters such as floods and earthquakes.
The Dr. Dog Program aims to improve the mental and physical condition of patients and their families. Certified therapy dogs make regular visits to hospitals, disabled centers, homes for the young and elderly, orphanages and schools.
Humane education is the main thrust of the organization. It aims to enhance the Filipino’s awareness and interest in animal welfare, and to counter ignorance, indifference, and cruel traditional beliefs.
PAWS diligently pursued the Philippine Animal Welfare Act (also known as Republic Act 8485) until it was signed into law in 1998. We continue to collaborate with various stakeholders and government agencies in crafting animal-friendly policies.
PAWS is against the abuse of animals in any form. This is why we actively pursue animal offenders with the aim of bringing them to justice. Numerous court battles have been won, but only with the help of passionate, committed citizens who took action and did not turn a blind eye.
The PAWS shelter is exclusively for animals in distress, particularly those involved in cases of cruelty or neglect. We provide physical and behavioral rehabilitation for these rescued animals, ensuring that they are nursed back to health and ready to be put up for adoption.
