Results: We moved to our current location in 2003 and have added new enclosures and pens each year. In 2011, we added a flight pen for the raptors. Over the years we have expanded to the point that now, we hold more federal permits involving wildlife than any other facility in the state..

Paws is one of the best Wildlife educators out there. Tremendous care is always given to each individual animal needing rescue and rehabilitation. Tireless to teach the youth by giving wonderful outreach in the public and private schools, their education helps the next generation to respect and care for our wildlife. Many lil frail animal lives have been saved by their careful hands.

We saw a red tailed hawk get hit by truck and it couldn't get back up. Mate was screaming from above so we made note of exact location with hopes of full recovery so she could be released. Her injuries were extensive and it was touch and go for awhile. It took several months for her to get better but we finally got the call that she was ready to be released. Thanks Mac for taking such great care of her. What a amazing day it was seeing he fly.

Last summer, after finding a female hummingbird desperately trying to feed from one of my several feeders then falling under the feeder i found that she had a broken lower beak. Having been Facebook friends with PAWS I immediately called them then took the bird to Mac for help, While the bird did not survive the night I know that all effort was made to help her. I appreciated the caring and I appreciated being informed of the outcome. Thanks again PAWS!

I have recently had the pleasure of meeting Mac and being exposed to the wonderful work provided by PAWS. Because of the caring people behind this organization, our unfortunate wildlife get a second chance at life. I have been collecting baby possums who were orphaned. Because of PAWS, they will be able to grow into Possum adults and once again be released into the wild.
