|PAWS How Can I Help?|
There are many ways you can help:
Adopt a Pet
On our Adoption page you will find links to photos and stories about happy, friendly dogs and cats who are looking for good homes. Some are still in Pounds, some have been rescued from Death Row when their "time has run out" and placed with Foster Carers.
Become a Foster Carer
If you are unable to adopt a pet on a permanent basis, or want to see how a dog or cat fits into your home first, why not become a Foster Carer for an animal on Death Row. PAWS want to save as many animals as possible, but can only do this if we have a Foster Carer to look after them until they find a home!
PLEASE HELP US TO SAVE MORE LIVES!!!
Become a Sponsor
Please be assured that adoption fees are ONLY used to rescue dogs and cover any additional veterinary costs incurred by our volunteer rescuers. PAWS has no paid staff, no offices to pay rent on, no large advertising campaigns and no government funding. In addition, rescuers are not reimbursed for any personal expenses incurred by their rescue work such as phone calls or petrol. Perhaps more importantly, your money does not go to an organisation that kills healthy dogs just because it is taking too long to find them a home!
PLEASE NOTE NO PROFIT IS MADE BY PAWS FROM REHOMING RESCUED ANIMALS
