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
Gilligan is a loving, friendly, laid back and handsome guy. He was adopted out but very sadly returned as it was not working out. His adopter's home was quite active, and it may have been too stressful for Gilligan. A calm and quiet home will be the best placement for Gilligan. He will need to remain on a special diet to maintain good urinary tract health. Gilligan is a wonderful cat with the softest purr. He would make a wonderful companion and friend for just the right person or persons. If you think you would like to adopt Gilligan or would like more information about him, please fill out our pre-adoption questionnaire or contact us today.
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.
