Are there other PAWS branches?
Why wont PAWS put up branches in the province?
Sana may PAWS dito sa lugar namin.
PAWS is located at :
Aurora Blvd., Katipunan Valley, Loyola Heights Q.C.
Office hours: Mondays to Saturdays (except Sundays and holidays), 10am - 5pm
Telefax: 475-1688 (only during ofc hours)
There is no provincial office or other branches.
Putting up another PAWS branch/shelter elsewhere entails a huge sum of money - One has to take into account available ample-sized property, construction materials, information/telecom infrastracture, personnel, veterinarian/s on duty, vehicles, utility bills, etc.
Donations and active volunteers are crucial to the effectivity of the lone PAWS shelter in QC as a non-profit animal welfare organization. We would like to remind everyone that PAWS is not funded by the government and relies on donations from kindhearted people, fundraisers and volunteers to help the animals.
If you are far from the PAWS shelter in Quezon City or do not live in Manila and you want to volunteer to help the animals, please consider the following options:
1. Be a SUPPORTING MEMBER.
Supporting Members are also considered active volunteers and help us continue our work for the animals. Volunteers can do both volunteer work and be a Supporting Member for as little as P300 a month.
Click here to BE A SUPPORTING MEMBER.
2. send us YOUR IDEAS/PROPOSED ACTIVITIES and we can coordinate with you
We also have volunteers located far from the shelter and outside of Metro Manila who do lobbying and all other campaigns for animal welfare in their areas. If you do not live in Manila, please let us know what your ideas are and how you think you can help as a PAWS volunteer in your province. You may email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org to check feasibility and coordinate activities/projects in your area.
For all proposed activities that would like PAWS' participation (collecting donations for the benefit of PAWS, wants PAWS to help organize, etc), please email email@example.com with the details of the project and wait for approval before including the PAWS name and logo in your event poster.
Interested animal lovers (whether in Manila or in the province) who want to do their part to help the animals can also get tips by listening in to a previously recorded segment of Animal Chronicles where Li, a PAWS volunteer who also shares her time to help the Mandaluyong Animal Shelter and other animal welfare organizations, talks about how an "ordinary person" can make a difference (http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/16235980 - please wait until after the President's SONA which took up half the time of Animal Chronicles' program).
FOR HUMANE EDUCATION INQUIRIES OUTSIDE MANILA
PAWS offers free seminars about responsible pet ownership, animal control facility or pound management, information on animal welfare laws, etc. for barangays, including provinces (for as long as transportation can be provided for the volunteers). Please see read this link for more info: Responsible Pet Ownership Seminars, Pound Management and Vaccination Drives
FOR INFO ON HOW TO REPORT ANIMAL CRUELTY/NEGLECT OR HOW TO RESCUE AN ANIMAL IN YOUR AREA OUTSIDE MANILA
If you are asking if there is a PAWS branch in the province because you want to be able to report animal neglect, abuse or cruelty - kindly read the PAWS Frequently Asked Questions to read the guidelines posted about what actions one can take when they come across injured strays, rescues, pet neglect, animal abuse or cruelty.
FOR ADOPTION INQUIRIES OUTSIDE MANILA
Check with your local pound or shelter to see if they have animals available for adoption.
You, as an individual, can do your own bit from where you are. Educate, enlighten, inform, intervene, rescue, foster, adopt, donate, volunteer at your local pound/shelter, talk to your city vet to see how you can help, download & distribute flyers, lobby, blog responsibly about animal welfare issues and how others can help. Help get the animals at your local pound/shelter adopted.
Use your facebook wall, twitter, blog, etc as your responsible dissemination platform.
Enjoin others to do the same. Start in your own home, enjoin next door neighbors, then work up the street. even your barangay.
Concerned private citizens may have limited powers but are not entirely helpless.
YOU CAN make a difference. It may take a lot of time and effort but when you harness your potential to improve things in your corner of this world + inspire/motivate others to act.. CHANGE HAPPENS. :)
Thank you for wanting to help the animals and God bless!
