What is the Angel Fund?
Financial demands of providing excellent care for our dogs and cats each year, combined with the extra cost of special veterinary treatments, limit our ability to meet unique medical needs. The Angel Fund was established by PAWS Humane Center as a way to cover expenses for treatment above and beyond the regular veterinary services animals receive while in our care.
Animals come in that require special treatment or surgeries, which may be from being abused, being hit by a car, or birth defects that require special surgeries.
George, is one of many animals, which has come to us in need of some extra attention. George came to PAWS in January of 2017. At the end of January he went to get his bilateral entropion repair on both his eyes. He stayed in foster until he was better and ready to be adopted. George is now happy in his furever home.
Pixie and Tinkerbelle came into the shelter in April 2017.Pixie within a couple of days had 2 hernia surgeries. They stayed in foster until their adoption in May to a loving home! Pixie is now Piper! Tinkerbell is now Willow!

Other Ways To Give
Kuranda Dog and Cat Bed
We have chosen Kuranda beds because they are of good quality, cost effective, and comfortable. Even though these beds are sturdy, they need to be replaced on a regular basis throughout the year due to general wear and tear. PAWS Humane Center is always in need of dog and cat beds! If you would like to donate a bed to provide comfort for our shelter friends, you can have a Kuranda bed sent directly to PAWS Humane Center.

4 1/2 years old, Shepherd Mix, Female Spayed. Hoku is a true cuddlier all the way. She is looking for someone to go on walks with and curl up on the couch. Hoku isn’t needy by any means but she sure does love just being with someone whenever possible. She likes her stuffed animal toys and takes good care of them. Meet and greets are required for any possible fur siblings because she can be a little picky. Hoku is a medium energy dog, the best of both worlds. She will love to lounge around with you or go have an adventure for the day.
