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.

I have been working with PAWS from past 3 years and its been a wonderful experience..Rescuing birds,animals,reptiles is PAWS empower us to help needy animals on the street. It could be an injured or sick animal needing medical intervention (vet or hospitalisation) or a young one needing a loving home… & yes, they have taught us to do it the right way … so that the animal does not suffer from unprofessional or amateur doctoring. Thanks a lot to Nilesh & team for all the support and encouragement, to help us make a difference in the lives of our “Feathered & Four-legged” friends and to become a better Human Beingamazing..I got a chance to be close to the nature..I love my job..I will like to advise all to join PAWS and do something for their country..Animal welfare is a part of help which you can do for the betterment of your country and its animals..They are a group of youngsters and no one is above 40 in their entire unit, none of the patrons come from affluent background. They make 2-3 news stories EVERYDAY raising awareness and confidence of animal lover as well as increasing positive perception of public on the issue of animal welfare. but news is not what they work for, animals is what they really work for, news just happen. They rescue animals, fight against cruelty, promote vegetarianism, carry out plantation drives, rescue wildlife, run vaccination drives, carry out vet medical camps, they do nearly everything that large animal NGOs do, but with fraction of funds and resources. Their real strength is the power of youth, almost everything is done by volunteers.

PAWS being one of the longest standing NGOs in their area do a great deal with awareness programmes and rescue to the utmost of their abilities. They have an active group of volunteers, who then take their education and move on to create awareness and care in their own areas. I have worked with this NGO on several occasions. They are also aware of their limitations which is rare. They limit themselves to work that they can do competently and within costs. This is commendable. They are generous with information and networking with others. It is difficult to say NO in our society when one is aware of the dimensions of the problem. I wish them continued good luck for all their enterprises.

apart from the wonderful work that PAWS does, what i admire most is that they focus not just on rescues, treatments and rehabilitation but also on the extremely important aspect of creating awareness. their awareness camps in schools will go a long away in inculcating respect and compassion among the larger public.

I have recently joined this organization and did 2-3 events together (stray dogs' vaccination, rescue of a physically challenged dog) I really appreciate PAWS working style and efforts which shows that there is still presence of selflessness kindness and humanity. PAWS not only help animals but it strives to help animals and show example of great inspiration towards compassion. I'm proud to be PAWS volunteer and I look forward to help animals and nature through PAWS guidance. THANK YOU PAWS-DOMBIVLI. Love Nature.

I have been volunteering with PAWS for over 3yrs now. With PAWS I get to be involved in animal welfare at a very grassroot level and that gives me a sense of satisfaction. I get a chance to take responsibility n make a difference. PAWS is a neatly managed ngo that runs like a well-oiled machine to get the job at hand done.

I am associated with PAWS for around 2.5 years now and I volunteer and attend rescue calls in my own capacity in and around Badlapur. Its been a great learning experience till now, where every day, every person and every animal is a new experience. PAWS is apt in responding to rescue calls and giving timely treatments to animals in distress. PAWS has its unique way to interact with all of its volunteers and discuss rescue cases. They use Watsapp...which I believe is one of the best ways to keep everyone in loop. With time I have seen PAWS improving day by day and I am sure (though its 15 years now)...this is just a beginning....many more to come :)

Plants Animal welfare Society (PAWS) run by Nilesh Bhanage is a NGO which works towards the welfare of animals in Thane district area. Based in Dombivali this NGO works vry effectively and efficiently when it comes to the rescue of any animals, reptiles, birds, etc... Im a part of this organisation since January this Year but i can confidently say that its one of the best NGOs in Mumbai. PAWS also arranges Anti Rabies Vaccination drives for stray dogs every month in various areas and suburbs., It also has tree plantations & other awareness workshops held in the city. It also specializes in late night rescues, which is well beyond its allocated ambulance timings. There is a rescue center at Murbad, run on d funding's by donors, where all the animals are treated & released back.

PAWS also has the best Volunteer relationships, with the personal touch taking it to the next level. For more than a decade PAWS has worked for animal welfare and is one of the elite non profit organisations in Mumbai. I recommend any animal lover or professional to be a part of PAWS n b d part of uncompromising & dedicated welfare organisation for animals.
