We couldn’t be more proud of the year we’re having – we transfer in, care for, and adopt out more animals now than ever before in our nearly twenty-five year history.
PAWS has implemented progressive and robust programs over the past few years, including community low cost spay/neuter, open adoptions, innovative animal housing, trap-neuter-return, managed admissions, and other animal welfare best practices. Through the efficacy of these efforts, PAWS has experienced tremendous growth, all the while consistently maintaining a monthly live release rate over 90%, and sometimes even higher. We’ve also been recognized as a “Model County Shelter” in Kentucky – one of twenty in the state – by a study done by the University of Kentucky.
None of our success would be possible without the continued support from our great community. Please consider helping us as we continue providing excellent care to the homeless animals in our region!
