At PAWS For Life – Animal Welfare & Protection Society we take the process of adopting a new family member quite seriously.
Due to the problems that can arise when someone is surprised with a “live” gift – we prefer that all potential adopters visit the shelter and visit our dogs in “pawson.”
You should bring the whole family, including dogs, to meet potential new
family members in our meet and greet area.
Pit bulls require a home check and all large breed dogs require a six foot fence.

In accordance with state law if a puppy is not spayed/neutered, an extra
$50.00 must be added to the above fees and will be refunded when owner provides
proof that the animal has been spayed/neutered. A certificate will be issued
to the adopter to give to the spay/neuter provider. To view our shelter residents, see the Petfinders link on the Home Page to see which dog is the perfect fit for you.
