"I saw this poor (hungry/thin/mangy) kitten, dog/puppy in the street - how do I admit it into the PAWS shelter?"
PAWS receives this question a lot.
To clarify --
PAWS admits only:
For these, we need the help of the concerned citizen to take a more proactive approach and agree to foster or temporarily keep the animal while we assist in rehoming and giving low-cost veterinary care /spay-neuter. A Foster Agreement Form is signed at the PAWS office. See PAWS Foster Care Agreement Form here.
Please see excerpts from our Admission Policy:
Therefore admission of some animals reported to be in need may be delayed to ensure the well-being of other animals in our care.
Due to the fact that there are always more animals in need than those who are willing to provide homes for them, PAWS’ limited-admission policy will look at the special circumstances of each “animal in distress” presented for admission which will be weighed against the needs of animals already in our shelter.
For any other concerns not answered in the PAWS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and our FAQ site, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 475-1688 (during office hours only: 10am-5pm Mondays to Saturdays, except holidays).
