Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS) is seeking volunteers to help keep those most vulnerable in our community together with their beloved pets. By helping PAWS' clients care for their pets you will be ensuring that low-income and disabled individuals in our community can continue to benefit from the unconditional love and healing powers of the human-animal bond.

Since 1987, PAWS has been helping hundreds of people maintain their pets through the dedication of volunteers who do dog walking, help with cat care, distribute pet food at the PAWS pet food bank and/or deliver pet food to clients, transport pets and clients to vet appointments and provide temporary pet foster care. If you are an animal lover and want to help others who are at risk of losing their own beloved companion animal, come join our team of fabulous volunteers today!

The next PAWS Trainings are:

Tuesday, October 9th 5:00-8:30 pm

Tuesday, January 22nd 5:00-8:30 pm
