People in the community should go to PAWS.
Dogs and cats need homes. The pets may be lonely and need someone to play with. When pets have a home, they run freely and get exercise.
At PAWS, you can adopt dogs and cats. Some cats and dogs there are already trained, so you don’t have to worry about them making messes in the house. Some of the adoption fees are paid for through the Guardian Angel program. This is great for families who are not able to afford the fees. If you don’t want to permanently adopt a pet, PAWS is always looking for foster homes. This is a chance to see what it’s like to own a pet.
If you can’t take care of your pet or are moving somewhere that doesn’t allow pets, PAWS can help. They’ll take good care of them.
You should donate money and supplies to PAWS because pets need food and chew toys, which cost a lot of money. There are a lot of dogs and cats there that need new cages and beds so animals aren’t lying on the hard floor. Some pets need medications. Expensive medicines may help sick animals. There are a lot of things you can donate such as chew toys, food, tissues, creamy peanut butter, paper towels, trash bags and Ziploc bags. They really need the money. If you want to get a new pet, PAWS is a great place to go! For information, go to www.centrecountypaws.org.
