Paws Animal Rescue is operated solely on a volunteer basis. If it wasn’t for all the volunteers that support us, we wouldn’t be able to save as many homeless animals as we do each year.

The new facility at 1530 N Lowell Avenue (behind Walmart off of Airport Road) is staffed part-time on weekdays from 8 to noon. It houses both our available cats and dogs that aren’t being fostered. Volunteers come in at night and on weekends.

The work involves cleaning, socializing, and providing fresh food and water for all. On weekends, we like to have extra volunteers signed up to accomplish everything that needs to be done, plus those to help during open hours.
