PAWS, People for Animal Welfare Society, is a volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. Our purpose is to promote the humane treatment of Greene County animals by providing humane education, helping with neglect/abuse calls as needed and providing 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

 Bring your cats; bring your dogs - especially if they enjoy an occasional day out wandering around town! We here at the Greene County Animal Shelter like nothing better than reuniting Fido or Fifi to their rightful owners! One of the best ways to do this is with a microchip implant. It’s easy, it’s inexpensive –just $20 – and it is peace of mind for you, the pet owner! Give us a call to set up a time that works best for you at 515-386-9814, or send us an email at pawsofgreenecounty@hotmail.com. Advance notice is always best, but walkups are welcome too! 

We thank you, and so do your pets!



The Greene County Animal Shelter is now open the
4th Saturday of each month from 10am - noon!
We'll be there for the public to come and visit our animals, check into volunteer opportunities, exercise  the dogs, socialize the cats, drop off any donations you might have and adopt out some of our wonderful animals!  
Mark your calendars for this monthly event, and we'll see you there!
