Support the shelter Support the shelter

There is a place in your community where the hungry are fed, the homeless are sheltered, and the abandoned are given care.† Itís your local humane society.

The PAWS Humane Society is devoted to helping provide comfort and care to the communityís unwanted animals.† Our goal is to help them find happy, healthy, and loving homes.† We canít do this alone and rely on the support of people like you throughout the community.

It takes many people in many capacities to achieve our success.† Volunteers and supporters are the key.† Please give consideration to the giving of yourself to the animals in any of the following ways.

Donating online is secure and easy!
Monetary donations are always needed and welcomed. As the PAWS Humane Society is non-profit organization, we rely on funding generated by public fund-raisers, public contributions, contractual services, and adoption fees.† We function not only as a humane society but also as animal control for the city.† The city of Charles City has granted us a portion of tax dollars for budget support.
