Looking for your next best friend?

The PAWS Humane Society is a private nonprofit organization which serves as a sanctuary of hope and second chances for animals in need.† We are a haven for the unwanted and abandoned who are desperately seeking loving and happy homes.† A haven with a heart. The PAWS Humane Society is much more than just a shelter - it is a place where unconditional love and trust can be found where ever you turn.


Money canít buy you love.

But it can buy lots of other things we desperately need! Any amount of monetary donation you can give is ALWAYS appreciated. If you canít manage to donate a few dollars you might check out our Volunteer Program and donate your time to helping care for the animals.
