MADISON COUNTY PET SHELTER

aka PAWS AND CLAWS PET SHELTER   |   Huntsville, AR   |  www.thepetshelter.org

Mission

To help pets in need, in a no-kill environment, through sheltering, spaying and neutering, adoption and community outreach.

Notes from the nonprofit

In late 2014, this pet shelter adopted the goal of placing each dog and cat in a loving home, and rejected the standard of killing pets to make room. We maintain an animal enrichment program to ensure each homeless pet receives love and care while at our shelter. Our goal is to find local homes for our homeless pets so that we can continue to work with and educate our adopters on best practices for proper animal care . We believe in treating all animals and people with love and understanding and kindness even during the most difficult situations. We are solution minded and do not fall victim to the stressful situations we face daily in the animal shelter environment . We are a loving, welcoming team of people that work with our community for the best solutions for our homeless pets.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our existing building has only eight dog kennels and limited feline and intake cage space. Our growing community is bringing more demand in us being able to provide animal sheltering services at a larger scale than what we can do in our current location. We are working to make improvements to our current location to be better able to care for animals in our current environment while we look at options of a new location for growth.

Charting impact

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

Construction of a larger, more efficiently designed shelter will enhance not only the lives of the dogs and cats we serve but also the lives of everyone in the county. When respect for life is a publicly expressed and promoted value, everyone benefits. Until we are able to find a new location to build a more modern facility, we are working to make improvements to our current locations to better serve the homeless pet population .

Working to partner with our community to work for a common goal of providing great animal sheltering service for our community .

Dedicated Board, staff and volunteers working cohesively for our common goal.

We have currently made improvements to our outdoor kennels to allow us to have puppies in a safer environment. We have also purchased cat kennels that are larger and provide a better environment for mother cats with kittens.
