Welcome to PAWS Humane Society!
- Provide low cost spay/neuter to reduce pet overpopulation and its resulting cruelty
- Assist in finding homes for adoptable animals
- Provide humane education materials and programs to the community
We have a feline adoption center inside of PetCo on E. State Street, Rockford. Our Cat Adoption Program started in 2005. We handle hundreds of feline adoptions annually.
Our Dog Adoption Program officially started in late 2010. To date, we have no adoption center to house our dogs, so they are kept safe and healthy in foster homes.
In 2014, PAWS funded the spay/neuter of 1,664 dogs and cats. We placed 368 felines in the forever homes and 75 dogs. Currently, we sponsor 357 classrooms in the RPS 205 school system with The Kind News put out by the Humane Society of the United States.
In 2015, PAWS will continue to stand for all of the above. We ask for your continued support as we head into the New Year making a greater impact on animal welfare.
Come visit us at PetCo, on Facebook, or at our Four PAWS Resale Boutique (opening early in 2015!) or join us at our largest event of the year, the 2015 Fur Ball! Thank you for your support!
