Our  Objectives

Educating the public is very important to Precious Paws. We will campaign tirelessly to inform the public about the importance of responsible animal guardianship.   By informing the public about the necessity for responsible animal care and the importance of spay and neuter we help solve the problem of homeless animals.  The number of unwanted animals due to overpopulation is intolerable and heartbreaking.  By ensuring that animals are spayed and neutered, we can help to alleviate this overpopulation.  Informing the public about the positive effects of spaying and neutering will help to educate them about this important matter.  Every time we are working with the public we provide this service.  We also provide them with reference materials about how to take care of their animals (i.e. information on spay/neuter, vaccinations, care of newly-adopted cats or dogs, feline and canine diseases, etc.).

 When funds do permit, we will provide assistance for individuals who cannot afford proper veterinary care for their animals.  This helps to keep the animal with the individual and to alleviate any unnecessary suffering for the animal.  It also will help provide spay and neuter to people who may not be able to afford this service and therefore will prevent unwanted puppies and kittens from being born when they are not wanted.  Funds will also be dispersed to offset trap/neuter/release efforts and expenses relating to the overpopulation of feral cats in the surrounding communities.  Precious Paws ultimate goal is to establish a sanctuary to house orphaned cats and dogs until they can be placed in permanent, loving homes and a forever home for those dogs and cats that have special medical needs and/ or are not adoptable.

 Until Precious Paws establishes a sanctuary ....

Our rescues stay at the homes of our volunteers.  None of our rescues are kept in cages. 
The only time a cage is used would be for medical / isolation needs of the pet.
Because our rescues are living in home environments we can evaluate
their behavior and provide guidance or training as needed.

Any sanctuary we may eventually have
will maintain this home style quality of life for our rescues.
