PAWS Columbus, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to prevent overpopulation and suffering of companion animals, to teach kindness and responsibility toward them, and to promote the remarkable capacity of pets to enrich human lives through pet-assisted therapy programs. We work in partnership with the City of Columbus to enhance and supplement the services offered by Animal Care and Control, reduce the need for euthanasia of unwanted animals because of severe pet overpopulation and find a loving and compatible forever home for every adoptable animal. PAWS is supported by private contributions from the citizens of our community. We are People Helping Animals, Animals Helping People.

Our Adoption Process...
Adopters must be 21 years of age or older and present a valid driver's license or picture ID
The adoption fee for our animals varies and is dependent on many factors including age, size, behavior, medical condition and demand.
Setting higher fees for some animals enables us the ability to put funds towards our elderly and "special needs" animals that would otherwise not make it.
Adoption fees include:
Age Appropriate Immunizations Rabies Disease Appropriate Testing Deworming Internal & External Parasite Prevention Spay/Neuter Microchip & Registration Training DVD 5 lb. Bag of Science Diet Food 1 Month of Pet Health Insurance.
