What We Do . . .
Pendleton Animal Welfare Shelter (PAWS) was
formed by a group of concerned Pendleton County residents in April
2005. We are working towards the goal of establishing an animal
shelter to serve the needs of Pendleton County's companion animals.
Since November 2003, over 160 Pendleton County
dogs and puppies (this does not include cats, whose numbers are
a lot higher) needed homes because they were stray and unwanted
pets. Please note: this number does not
include those strays or unwanted dogs of which we were not notified;
therefore, the actual numbers of needy dogs and cats could easily
be many times this amount. Pendleton
County needs an animal shelter!
To this end we have established PAWS as a
tax-deferred nonprofit organization. This has been the first step
to making the shelter a reality.
How you can help: Our
organization is small. We can use volunteers for the following:
Foster a dog or cat.
Transport a dog or cat for veterinary care
Transport kittens to and from PetSmart in Harrisonburg for the
Transport a dog or cat to a rescue organization meeting point
Work at the flea market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on a Saturday
Work at the flea market booth for 3 or 4 hours during SpringFest
or the Treasure Mountain Festival
Help with the Fun Dog Show at SpringFest or the County Fair
Donate and/or sell food and drinks at Country Store Opry concerts
Donate aluminum cans and/or empty inkjet cartridges
PAWS is a nonprofit corporation, so all
donations are tax-deductible.
