PAWS concentrates on promoting public awareness regarding animal welfare issues, pet health care, disaster preparedness, and most importantly, the necessity of spaying and neutering. We visit local schools, churches, and civic organizations in an effort to educate the public about what they can do to help the nationwide epidemic of pet overpopulation. PAWS also takes a role in rescue operations during a national disasters and we assist with large scale hording and cruelty cases. In addition, we have education programs for kids in schools and a therapy pet program in hospitals and nursing homes.

PAWS is versatile. I adopted 2 horses from PAWS. I drove from Northeast Texas because Prima made everything so easy. I was uncertain about becoming a horse owner after not riding for 30 years. One of my horses was injured when I adopted him. Prima helped me take care of him and find a vet. We ride all the time now. I have had both horses for over a year now. Prima helped us see what a great fit we were for each other. My horses are the best. PAWS is great. And Prima is fantastic.

Prima is amazing! I was blessed to be able to adopt our sweet Roxie from her as well as help when I can with her efforts. I just wish I could give more.
