Pendleton Animal Welfare Shelter (P.A.W.S.) is dedicated to helping facilitate the placement of stray and unwanted animals into loving homes; to establish and maintain a safe haven animal shelter that promotes proper health, care and handling of our "guests", and prevent overpopulation and cruelty in our area.  We have saved the lives of nearly 500 stray/unwanted animals in Pendleton County since we started in 2005.
We are a registered 501(c)3 animal rescue that is dedicated to help unwanted, neglected, or abandoned animals located in Pendleton County, West Virginia.  Our rescue depends completely on caring volunteers and donors that are willing to help with our cause.
We do not receive any government or state funding so we can use your help.
Every year there are 6-8 million homeless animals that enter shelters in the United States, only half of these find forever homes.  The rest are euthanized due to no homes being available.  Please don't add to this staggering number...spay and neuter your pets.
If you need help to cover the cost for spay and neuter, please
contact us at (304) 358-3644 or email us at:
