About Forever Paws Animal Shelter,Inc.
About Our Shelter...
Forever Paws Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. We believe there is a home out there for every animal we take in. We work to give each animal the gift of time, therefore we are a no-kill shelter.
Every animal taken into the shelter is given complete veterinary care, is neutered or spayed, evaluated and when available some training and behavioral rehabilitation, if needed.
Our shelter mission is to provide suitable care, food, shelter and humane treatment for any abandoned, owner surrendered, sick, lame, overworked, old, cruelly treated and/or confiscated dog, cat, or any other domesticated animal. Educating the public concerning animal welfare and owner responsibility for the purpose of advocating humane treatment for animals and to prevent animals from being sold or given to laboratories or institutions and/or subjected to experimentation. Our motto is to "give animals a new leash on life".
