Mission:

People Promoting Animal Welfare (PPAW) is a 501c(3) non-profit organization with the exempt purpose of operating a low-cost spay/neuter clinic for dogs and cats. Our clients primarily reside in 3 counties of East Tennessee area (Blount, Loudon and Monroe counties), but we have clients from 14 other Tennessee counties and three other states. The PPAW Spay/Neuter Clinic was started in late 1998, and we have sterilized over 50,000 companion animals to date. Our mission is to reduce the number of unwanted dogs, cats, kittens and puppies in our area of East Tennessee and thus reduce the number of euthanasia induced deaths at area shelters. We support rescue organizations to help them save dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from kill-shelters, and we support shelters who are working diligently to achieve no-kill status. Their quest and our mission work hand in hand.

Results:

2012 Calendar year to date through September, 2012, PPAW has fixed over 52,000 cats and dogs. We spay or neuter approximately 5000+ animals per year.

Geographic areas served:

Loudon, Blount and Monroe counties are the primary counties served in our area of East Tennessee, but our reach also extends beyond to Sevier, Roane, Grainger counties and many remote areas of Appalachia.

Can't say enough kind words about PPAW and the dedication of each and every veterinarian, staff member, the board and others who make spay/neutering of the animals affordable and accessible to all. Amazing folk helping four leggeds and two. Their knowledge is shared with the public and does make a difference. Thank you PPAW!

I have had all my pets and an entire feral cat colony spayed at PPAW. I Never had any kind of complication and I am always impressed by their dedication and professionalism. Without them, there would be no way I could have afforded to maintain the feral cat colony in the area. Love this place and the angels that work there!

Ppaws is a fantastic place with caring and knowledgeable staff. They spayed and neutered my three boxers and also many of the feral rescue cats I have taken in. This county would be at a great loss without all that they do.

Such amazing and caring people. I have taken my own and foster cats and kittens to this facility for spay and neuters. They are so kind and caring. I always recommend them to anyone with cats/kittens to be prayed and neutered.

I got my kitten spayed at PPAW two days ago. I got her from a rescue that paid for her spay, so I only had to cover the cost of her shots, which were extremely affordable.) They also microchipped her. All the services were performed with care and the spay seems to be done extremely well, especially compared to those of other family pets that had been performed at larger vet hospitals. The staff members were friendly and helpful. My kitten is currently resting on my lap and says, "Thanks, PPAW!"

I'd make sure more people knew about their great, low-cost services!

I can't say enough good things about this organization. One of the volunteers actually waited on me to get there after they had closed so that I could drop off a feral cat for neutering. They offer discounted spay/neuter services as well as discounted flea medicine. I love the fact that they have animals that live there and just have free roam of the place. These wonderful volunteers really do love animals!

The people that work at PPAW are always SO nice and willing to help and answer any questions. I work with a cat rescue so I visit quite frequently and I am treated the same every time I go in. Even before I worked with rescues I would take animals and recommend this place to anyone who asked. Truly an awesome group of people working to help animals and their owners.

P Paws has helped so many animals and people. They offer advice and equipment on cat colonies and how to help those animals get spayed and neutered. They are angels! They have also spayed and neutered and offered medical treatment to many of my animals throughout the years. They are a well deserving facility of any grants, donations, or funds they receive. They make the most of their small space. You can feel the love for animals when you are there! They are dependable professionals and affordable to all.

This group is terrific, offering low cost spay/neuter services, name brand meds for half the cost other places and have a caring staff of volunteers with great people skills. We are so blessed to have them in our county.
