PAWS approves the keeping of companion animals only when there is full personal commitment to the welfare of the animals. The animals must be provided wit shelter, exercise, care, food and water appropriate to their physiological and behavioral needs.
We are opposed to all mutilations on companion animals carried out for non-therapeutic reasons (i.e. tail-docking, ear-cropping, declawing)
We believe that spaying or neutering of a companion animal is part and parcel of responsible pet ownership and is crucial to preventing animal homelessness and cruelty.
