Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:PAWS & More Animal Shelter primarily serves the city of Washington, Iowa, and the rural area surrounding it. The shelter also frequently takes in stray and abandoned animals from the rest of Washington County and counties bordering it, including nearby communities such as Ainsworth, Crawfordsville, Kalona, Richland, Riverside, Wellman, and West Chester.
About Our Shelter:The shelter was established as the Washington County Humane Society Animal Shelter in 1993 as a caring alternative to the local city dog pound. The shelter’s first home was a small building on the east side of Washington. In July of 1998, the shelter was moved to a much bigger building on the west side of town thanks to a generous donation from a local patron and matching funds raised by local Humane Society members and supporters. The name “PAWS & More” was chosen in 1999. PAWS & More Animal Shelter is a private, no-kill shelter located in Washington, Iowa. “PAWS” stands for “Providing Animals With Shelter,” while “More” stands for the loving care and treatment we give to every animal who passes through our doors.
