Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Today, animal welfare in Thane district has reached to a degree where people have started looking up to NGOs for helping an injured animal. All thanks to the Plants & Animals Welfare Society (PAWS) who acted as the guardians of animals and made this day possible where one phone call to the PAWS helpline number takes care of all your problems. The situation was not the same when PAWS started as a young NGO giving first aid to injured animals on the streets. At then PAWS did not have an ambulance, but few dedicated members took on their bikes and the first aid box to avail help for the injured animals on the streets. Time passed by and today PAWS boasts of having a couple of full-fledged ambulances serving to the needs of helpless animals. It’s no longer the same old PAWS. It has evolved to a degree where one can clearly say it has been a revolution, a certain youth movement where volunteers kept joining in the service of animals and the total number has surpassed beyond 200 and it’s increasing every single day. PAWS – a young NGO that was always determined to stand on its feet inspite of all the hard times. That’s the history of PAWS.

Out of my many experiences with PAWS, one has been of a dog with VG. He was in a very very bad condition,to the extent that he could not pee. PAWS took him, and even after sessions of chemotherapy, his swelling kept returning. But they persevered, and after 2 long months, he was ok! I think it was only due to the spirit of not giving up till he was completely OK which needs to be appreciated.

I have many rescue stories wherein stray life was saved with the help of paws team.But would like to share the one wherein paws saved life of one of the stray who was injured and maggots were on the wound.A stray in my uncles apartment was injured due to the belt which was tied around his neck.The iron buckle which helps tightened the belt slowly kept pricking the dogs skin and it made a deep hole in the neck which turned in a very big wound and maggots made the case more worse.Just one phone call was made to paws as dogs condition was worst and they not just got him admitted but released him only after the wound was completely healed and that too without any expectations.Dog was released in very healthy condition by the team.Thanks to team Paws for all the rescues, anti rabies drive, getting abandoned animals adopted and the organising events to educate people regarding animal welfare.....Vaishali Satish Kamath

PAWS is doing a wonderful job by educating the layman the significance of caring for animals, and yet at the same time not spoiling the environment around us. The volunteers of PAWS are spread across Mumbai, and it does a wonderful job to not only treat as many street animals it can, but also tends and rehabilates birds and wildlife to their safe environment. The NGO has been putting its consistent efforts to reduce the human- animal conflict through awareness programs, vaccination drives, tree plantation programs in various vicinities, educational institutions and corporate sectors too. It is lovely to have a young brigade NGO like PAWS working tirelessly for the animals and environment.

They helped me many times in different situations to treat and rescue the needy stray animals, But they have some limitations so sometimes didn't get help , still I rely on them.

A really active NGO who not only cares for the animals and birds, with consistent rescue and treatments, but also is educating citizens for improving the life and well being of the animals, birds and its environment by arranging workshops, awareness programs and exhibitions. Also going to the extent of roping in helpful and generous celebrities to spread the word of better well being for animals hence pushing the enthusiasm to a wider demography of the society.
Few of the initiatives include several drives to vaccinate and provide treatment to the stray animals in and around Mumbai.
PAWS has done a really commendable job for the well being of the Nature's precious creations.
