PAWS of Adams County

Adoption policy

PAWS stands for Pets Are Worth Saving. Our main goals for this group are to provide quality care and shelter for as many homeless animals as resources permit. P.A.W.S. endeavors to provide each animal with loving care, including vaccinations and spay/ neuter. Our main focus is cats and dogs. We hope to help larger animals in the future. We hope to enhance the quality of life by fostering sentiments of kindness and compassion that result from pet ownership. We strive to educate the public about the plight of homeless animals and encourage responsible pet ownership. Another goal is to secure a permanent, quality home for every animal in our care. We do a thorough backround check on all families who are interested in adopting any pets and make sure they are spay/ neutered. Only responsible pet owners are encouraged to consider adopting a pet.

FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
