Donations are a vital part of the AC PAW existence. Without your help, AC PAW’s success would not be possible. 94% of every dollar raised is used for direct care (food, kennels, veterinarian care, etc.) for the thousands of dogs and cats we save.

AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK
Callie is a very friendly and sweet kitty! She came to AC PAW from animal control after her owner was moving and could not take her along. Callie is not a fan of adoption days at PetSmart. She will usually hide under her blanket so people will just pass her by. It is sad, because she is such a wonderful cat who will be a wonderful friend and companion if given the chance. Callie's favorite pastime is sitting in front of the window and watching the birds and other critters. She also loves her scratching post. Her foster parents say she is not afraid of new people or situations, but will do best in a home with no small children. If you think you would like to adopt Callie or would like more information about her, please fill out our pre-adoption questionnaire or contact us today. We know she will win your heart.
Every year between 6 to 8 million dogs and cats enter shelters across the United States. Out of that number, 3 to 4 million are euthanized simply because there are not enough homes for them.

AC PAW started as a vision of two people, Brian Manley and June McGrath, to ensure a safe haven for animals from abuse, hunger, disease, and death. AC PAW was founded to give these animals a second chance at life. We all know too well the over-population problem happening at animal shelters, so one of our core missions is to spay/neuter all of our rescued animals prior to adoption. We are officially in our 20th year of volunteer service, with a handful of dedicated volunteers and a small number of donors. AC PAW began on July 1, 1995 and was officially incorporated on Jan 16, 1996. During this time we have rescued and placed nearly 10,000 dogs and cats into loving homes. We are always looking for animal lovers willing to put some time and effort into volunteering or becoming a foster home. Any kind of donations such as financial support, pet food, litter, blankets, towels, collars, or any kind of miscellaneous items would also be greatly appreciated.
