What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The PAWS Clinic aims to reduce euthanasia of healthy animals due to overpopulation in our local shelters. Making affordable spay/neuter services available to the community and feral cat caregivers is key in preventing the birth of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens.

Charting impact

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

To reduce animal homelessness and needless euthanasia in our local animal shelters by making high quality, affordable spay/neuter services available to our community. To work with local animal shelters and rescue groups to provide discounted services to them to ensure that the animals in their programs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

The PAWS Clinic works closely with a number of municipal shelters and animal rescue groups in our area to ensure that the animals in their custody are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. These groups work to help spread the word about our affordable, high quality services so that we can reach a higher percentage of the animal owning population.

The PAWS Clinic is part of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals' National Spay/Neuter Response Team. As such, we were trained by, and continue under the mentorship of that organization. NSNRT clinics employ best practices for safe, efficient high-volume surgeries.

The PAWS Clinic has gained an excellent reputation in our community. Most of our business comes from word of mouth recommendations. In 2010, we completed over 6500 surgeries, for a total of almost 67,000 between September 2011 and December 2020. This high volume of sterilization surgeries means that many, many fewer litters of puppies and kittens are being born each year. As many of these unwanted litters would be destined for animal shelters and likely euthanasia, our work has already saved countless lives.

We have seen a steady decrease in intake and euthanasia rates in our local animal shelters. We believe that our high volume of surgery is a strong contributing factor to this trend. As with the majority of businesses, COVID-19 has taken a toll on our productivity since March, 2020. A twelve week shut-down in the spring of 2020, followed by an ongoing difficulty in finding qualified veterinarians, has resulted in a decreased number of annual surgeries.
