PAWS, People for Animal Welfare Society, is a volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. Our purpose is to promote the humane treatment and care of Greene County animals.  We offer a low income spay/neuter program for Greene County residents who meet the criteria. We also care for the animals at the Greene County Animal Shelter, which is a small shelter for lost and abandoned animals. We strive to find loving, permanent homes for these animals through our adoption program.

Happy Tails
Once again, during the month of June, PAWS is the recipient of HyVee's Red Bag program.  For every bag purchased at $2.50, PAWS will get $1 - easy peasy!  Please ask for your reusable shopping bag when you are in HyVee this June.  Thanks much, PAWS!
                      *******ATTENTION PLEASE*******
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, beginning Saturday, April 11th we will be available by appointment only for people who are seriously interested in adopting one of our animals.  
We are not accepting new volunteers, and while we understand people like to drop by and see our animals, we have to keep our shelter worker and volunteers safe.  We have observed that not everyone believes in, or follows, the social distancing guidelines, so we feel this is the best route we can take.  Please understand that this is temporary and you can still see our adoptables on our website and Facebook.  Thank you for understanding - PAWS Board of Directors
