Rescue Spotlight: Pets Are Worth Saving, Inc.

Located in Union County, IL, Pets Are Worth Saving (PAWS) is a non-profit animal welfare organization. This group was founded to help deal with the increase in the animal population by rescuing rescue unwanted, homeless and abandoned animals and then working to find them permanent homes. The PAWS adoption shelter is “no-kill” and is funded solely by donations and fund raisers.

If you live in the area, you can meet the dogs and cats available for adoption at their shelter facility which is open in the afternoons Tuesday through Saturday. You can also browse the PAWS website which includes a link to pets available for adoption as well as an online adoption application. Any pet you adopt from PAWS will be spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, wormed and microchipped.

If you are not able to adopt but would like to help, you can volunteer to help at the PAWS shelter, or to assist with fundraising. PAWS happily accepts and appreciates your monetary donation, or donation of needed supplies such as cleaning supplies, towels, kitten or puppy food, and pet toys. PetMeds was proud to help support Pets Are Worth Saving with a donation of pet supplies.
