PAWS (Powell Animal Welfare Society) is an all-volunteer, all foster-based dog rescue serving the Columbus, Ohio area. Our volunteers rescue, provide veterinary care and find loving homes for abused, neglected and/or stray dogs from high-kill shelters in Ohio and neighboring states.
PAWS strives to eliminate the needless killing of homeless animals, one dog, one adopter at a time. We are in need of more loving foster homes for homeless dogs that are rescued from death row. PAWS can only save a dog if we have a foster home to care for it since we have NO kennel. Each foster home provides shelter and care, while PAWS provides food, veterinary care (including spay/neuter) and all necessary supplies such as crates, bowls, leashes, collars, etc.
The Ohio Pet License Plates are Ohio vehicle registration tags with special pet images. The purchase of a special image from the BMV raises funds for spay and neuter of dogs and cats at qualifying agencies like humane societies, non-profit dog and cat rescues, and government animal control facilities, helping more homeless animals to find forever homes!
