A 303 Shaw Avenue, Charles City, IA 50616 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats.
This rescue hasn't posted any pets that match these criteria.
For many years, Floyd County has operated under a state certified shelter. Lost dogs and cats would be picked up and if the rightful owners did not claim their animals within seven days, the animals would be destroyed. Countless healthy and beautiful animals would never get a second chance. The public sought change and fortunately our city agreed. Hence, the PAWS (Pets Are Worth Saving) Humane Society was incorporated July, 2000. We rely on financial support from private donations, fund raisers, contractual services, adoption fees, and a portion of tax dollars to operate.
The city allowed us to take over the existing animal control building as our new shelter. This building now provides two functions: an animal control facility where animals will await their owners and a humane society where unclaimed, lost, unwanted, or mistreated animals are guaranteed a chance at adoption and a loving home.
The PAWS Humane Society is a nonprofit organization acting as a regional sanctuary for the needs of animals and the community at large in areas served by the society. We are dedicated to preventing neglect, abuse and cruelty towards unwanted or abandoned animals. We strive to encourage humane care and treatment for the animals we shelter and see that their interests and well-being are humanely protected by an aware and caring society.
Some of the animals in our shelter are stray. Others are unwanted and have been abandoned, while still perfect in all the important ways. Many have been cast aside by their owners. Some owners didn’t have enough time. Some had to move. Some dogs were surrendered because they barked too much, others because they didn’t bark enough.
The one thing all these animals have in common is that each is hoping for you to bring them home and give them a loving new family. We hope you will help us help them.
