P.A.W.S. of Southwest Virginia is a 501(3)c organization working with local animal shelters and the community to find forever homes for their very adoptable pets. Our shelters are high-kill shelters. All of our pets are spayed/neutered and vetted before they are adopted. If the pet is too young, they require a spay/neuter contract.
We believe these pets deserve a second chance!
Come Meet our Pets:
Adoptions are held in various locations throughout the region. Primary location is Tractor Supply in Wise. If you are interested in meeting one of our adoptable pets, we will work with you to make that happen. Pets are in foster care.
Our Adoption Process:
Adoptions are by application. References are required. Adoption fee based on vetting required.
Dog adoption and cat
adoption saves lives. Adopt
a dog or adopt a cat and you'll
have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
