Programs and results

What we aim to solve

PAWS's vision is a community where responsible actions result in fewer homeless dogs and cats. We serve as the primary transfer partner of the Hertford County Animal Shelter - taking 80-90% of their animals into our care annually.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Saving our Tails Building Repairs

The Saving Our Tails Building Repairs Program is to assist in making high priority repairs to our facility. We currently have two 25' x 35' portables (a pup room and a cat room) that were donated several years ago to PAWS and act as our facility on the local shelter's grounds. The floors in both buildings and our deck were recently replaced due to damage associated with age, costing thousands of dollars. We now need to replace the air conditioning units in both portables and grade our yards. These improvements will allow for PAWS to better focus on saving more lives in the community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

PAWS's mission is to provide animal welfare and security within the community.

We assist animals in the community in a number of ways. 1) We serve as the primary transfer partner for Hertford County Animal Control. We take in 80-90% of their cats and dogs annually and find safe outcomes for them through our rigorous adoption and transfer programs. 2) We offer low-cost spay/neuter to community members and their pets. This services approximately 20 animals each month. 3) We offer free rabies vaccinations annually to community members and their pets to help them keep their pets safe and healthy. 4) We partner with other organizations to provide community service hours in an effort to educate others.

Through our volunteer, adoption, foster, and transfer programs, we are able to assist hundreds of animals and people each year.

We have helped save the lives of over 10,000 cats and dogs since founding in 2006 through our adoption and transfer programs. Over 2,000 cats and dogs have been provided with low-cost spay/neuter and hundreds have been provided free rabies vaccinations at our annual clinics.
