PAWS of Wilburton, OK. was formed in January of 2001 immediately after a citizen went to visit the city pound and found the most barbaric, inhumane conditions ever. He found dead dogs, all frozen, with no dog food or water in sight. They had suffered to death. There was a small metal death box that they crammed the dogs into and gassed them to death with the exhaust of a truck if they didn't die from starvation or lack of water or worse. This was totally unacceptable to the animal lovers of our town. As we voiced our outrage, things became better for the dogs and the metal death box was taken away and destroyed. The president of PAWS donated a small piece of land and some pens were put up so we could start saving dogs right away. It has been a long hard battle because it seemed as though the city was against us but as time has gone by, we have had support from people who care and now have less opposition. With donations, we have been able to add on to our small no-kill shelter and care for more dogs. We rescue most of them from the rebuilt city pound. The pound is small ,but much better than the old one and has a very kind and caring Animal Control Officer now who works with us to try and save the innocent, abused dogs. As donations allow, we have all the dogs spayed and neutered and all their shots and any medicine they may need. Our local veterinarian is wonderful and helps us all he can. There are few volunteers and lots of needs, but somehow, with the help of prayers, we get it done. Please feel free to make a donation to help our cause in our small, southeast Oklahoma town.
Volunteers are always needed and welcome.

Come Meet our Pets:
We have adoption days in front of our local grocery store when weather allows and we also have adoption days inside at Pet Sense in McAlester. Pet Sense donates food and toys and other animal goodies when someone adopts one of our rescued dogs.
Our Adoption Process:
We have an adoption form that states our adopted animals must be kept inside or in a fenced yard.
Paws has the right to to check on the welfare of the adopted animal for a period up to one year from the adoption date.
If the adopted animal is found to be abused, mistreated, sick or hurt we can take them back.
All adoptions must take place in the presence of an official Paws member.
Any adopted pet may be returned at any time to Paws if it is not working out.
We run solely on donations and ask only that people pay us the cost of the spay or neuter and any vaccines they have been given but it can be waived if the person cannot afford it if the animal is going to a good home.
