Currently in the U.S., there are approximately 70 million stray animals on our streets. Only 6 to 8 million of those strays enter shelters, with approximately 3 to 4 million dogs and cats being euthanized each year. This equates to a healthy animal being killed every 13 seconds.

 Christina Morgan and Chad Atkins founded Paw Works, a non-profit with two storefronts in Ventura and Thousand Oaks, in 2014. Their initial intent was to make Ventura County "No Kill," a goal they achieved less than one month after starting the organization.

Paw Works is now the largest animal non-profit 501c3 in Ventura County, already placing over 3,600 abandoned shelter dogs and cats in permanent homes. Now in its fourth year, Paw Works recently acquired its first boarding facility and sanctuary, continuing the organization’s growth from its foster-based roots.

Meet momma Sapphire(middle) she and her 8, yes 8 pups, came to us from Central Valley. She and all of her babies were at risk to be euthanized Fortunately, Paw Works pulled them in time and they were SAFE.

Due to being abandoned, momma was terrified and ended up having some major separation anxiety but our team worked with her and her babies to get through it!

She and all of her babies are now in loving furever homes and it’s all because our community’s constant support and donations. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to save all of these precious lives.

Having a special nursery will allow us so save more moms and babies and give them the special attention they so desperately need. ❤️

If you’re a parent(human or fur baby alike) you know the overwhelming need to protect your babies. Imagine having that feeling while you’re abandoned, scared and not knowing who to trust

All too often pregnant dogs are put into the shelter system and are scared not only for their lives but the lives of their unborn babies. We make it our mission to build their trust and show them everything will be okay..This is Josie’s story.

Josie came to Paw Works from a rural shelter in Central California and upon taking her in she seemed aggressive and wouldn’t come out of her crate or let people near her. She was so fearful she had not eaten in almost two days as she was unsure of leaving the safety of her crate. After many methods of luring her out with food, one of our team members climbed into the pen with her and after 45 mins of waiting with delicious wet food on their hand and soothing words, Josie finally came out.

It was when she climbed into the lap of our team member that we noticed her belly felt a little more full than normal and once she understood she was not in harms way, we took her in to get an ultrasound and low and behold, this little lady was pregnant! Every day was full of showing her she was loved and safe and when her babies finally came into the world she trusted our team to help her through it. She and her babies are now doing great and will soon be ready to move on and into homes of their own✨❤️

Having a special nursery would allow us to give so many more mommas and babies a calming and peaceful place to feel secure. Please help us care for more animals like Josie and her pups by helping us build our Rescue Facility Nursery ❤️
