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.
