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.

Penny's Promise is a fund created in honor of Penny and the thousands of puppy mill dogs just like her.

Penny came to us as a 10 + year old commercial breeder with severe cataracts, a ruptured ear drum and severe diabetes.. ALL of which could have been EASILY prevented with proper care. At P.A.W. Penny had her first chance to experience really love, proper care and even grass for the very first time. Our promise is to honor Penny by continuing to give all commercial breeder dogs in our care a chance at love, grass and the life they deserve.

Penny's Promise will go to help all commercial breeder dogs in our care with major medical issues and life enrichment care.

Meet Avi. This sweet, pure bred, 4 year old West Highland Terrier was brought to PAW suffering from severe yeast infection, ear infection, flea allergies and huge hair loss. Over 70% of her body is HAIRLESS due to PLAIN and UTTER neglect. Because of the generous support of people like you, Avi will receive the best care and in a few months will be the gorgeous Westie she was always meant to be.

The Community, Businesses and everyone who believes in our cause, have been amazing in donating to PAW's Septic System problem . We have been in continuous contact with the Lee County Health Dept who is working closely with us to insure we are doing everything we need to do. They are also helping us every step of the way, as they too want to see PAW continue the work we do. . Because we are a business we will most likely need an engineer to design the new system. We will have the expense of pumping, digging up and disposing of waste and the old tanks. Fencing will also need to be taken down/ replaced as well as gravel for the area after the new tanks have been placed. We are also looking into a few other options. Though this is a HUGE need for the shelter we are blessed that our current system is still functional and gives us a window to be pro-active and research ALL options. We will be meeting with professionals and the Lee County Health Dept in the next few weeks to explore and discuss what will be best for PAW Animal Shelter not just for the next few years but for many years to
