To significantly reduce the burden on Vermont animal shelters, refuges and humane societies by supplementing their needs, allowing them to provide a cleaner, happier and healthier environment for homeless animals.
PAWS fundraises throughout the year as well as works with community business partners that provide donation sites during the holiday season, where the public can contribute items such as cleaning supplies, toys, treats and food, to benefit area shelters, refuges, and humane societies for homeless animals. PAWS then distributes them to the organizations at the end of the season.
“All of us here at NCAL are so appreciative of the generosity and effort that PAWS brings out from our communities, which is such a strong testament to the holiday spirit. The transition period while our dogs and cats wait to find homes can be stressful for them so the fact that the team recognizes the need to make them feel comfortable and cared for during this time, makes a big difference. Thank you for everything… your contribution has made ours that much easier!” —North Country Animal League
