Mission Statement

PAWS CARE is a volunteer group established in 2008 by individuals dedicated to being the voice for those who have none, to provide sanctuary for animals who have been abused, abandoned, or at lost and in need of shelter.  It is our mission to try to find responsible, loving homes for all who come our way, to reunite the "lost" with their family and encourage the public to embrace the humane treatment of homeless domesticated animals.
