It Takes a Community to Help a Friend

There’s a place in our community where the hungry are fed, the homeless are sheltered, and the abandoned are given care. It’s PAWS of Dearborn County Humane Center, which provides comfort and care for our community’s unwanted and lost animals.

Saving animal lives, ending animal suffering and homelessness, and eliminating cruelty and violence toward animals is not just the responsibility of any one group of people.

It takes a concerted effort by many . . . It takes a community.

Become a foster parent . . . a volunteer . . . and/or help with monetary donations or items on our wish list. You can also help by spreading the word to your friends and family that there are dozens of healthy, loving adoptable pets waiting to share their love with a family.

As we’ve said before, “It takes a community.” PAWS is grateful for the support of our community, and we ask that you continue to help us help those who can’t speak for themselves.
