WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO:
Parke County Animal Welfare Services Inc (PAWS), formerly known as "OTIS" or "The OTIS Foundation Inc" is a 501(c)3 registered tax-exempt nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of animals in our community and beyond. We are a foster-based organization.
Because we have no physical location or facility, we take on ONLY the most extreme cases, which generally consists only of STRAY companion animals in need of emergency veterinary care (hit by car, shot, etc.) and animals seized by law enforcement in cruelty investigations. We do NOT accept owner surrenders; that is what an animal shelter/humane society is for. We are not an animal shelter.
We are a small group of people who love animals and believe in the value of all living beings. We want to ensure that our community's pets are treated with respect and teach others to recognize and understand the value of the animals' lives.
Through education and advocacy, we strive to promote the importance of proper animal care, spaying/neutering, adoption/fostering, as well as the importance of enhancing animal protection laws.
