Core Mission - helping the pets of the homeless
Since 1999, the PAW Team has helped keep people and pets together during the most difficult times of their lives. Our mission is to provide vet care to the pets of the homeless. When the economy crashed, we extended our services to low income families to help out in the crisis.
We network with agencies that serve those who need it most such as domestic violence shelters, homeless youth, mentally challenged adults, people living on the streets or in transitional housing and families in extreme poverty.
We keep families together at the most difficult times of their lives.
