Support PAW

PAW Animal Shelter is a 501c3 No Kill Shelter located in Southeast Iowa. The shelter operates soley on donations from the community, refundable bottles/cans, memorials and small grants.  (No City , County or State funding) For over 30 years PAW have served the Tri State area taking in lost, abandoned and surrendered animals. We are a high intake shelter with a  daily staff of 4. With almost 200 animals in our care daily,  we have a lot of poop. We now find ourselves in need of a new septic system.  Without a functioning septic system, PAW will be forced to suspend operations and the lives of the 200 animals in our care will be in jeapordy. Many of our animals are "breed specific or special needs" making it difficult to place in other shelter. We find forever homes for almost 600 animals a year and are proud to say we have animals in wonderful forever homes throughout the United States.

We need your help. Each donation of $5, $10 or more will help us continue to find forever homes for the amazing animals in our care. 

Without YOUR help we cannot continue to do what we do...Save the lives of so many wonderful animals.
