Help our PAWS kitties this Giving Tuesday!

This year PAWS veterinary expenses have been higher than ever!  With this in mind, we have set a goal of raising $20,000 this Giving Tuesday to ensure we can continue to support our local felines and pet parents. 

Please help us meet this goal. 

Together, we can make a difference for more local felines.
