Six years of our Capital Campaign and MANY more years of our adopters and supporters keeping the faith in our organization has resulted in this fantastic new shelter for the homeless animals of our area. However, we do have a large mortgage and could use your help in paying it off.  The sooner we pay it off, the sooner we can plan for offering even more services. Paws and Claws is a nonprofit organization entirely funded by donations and the small fee we charge for adoptions. Thank you to all of you that believe in helping the animals that find themselves in need of sanctuary. When so many thought they did not matter, YOU did. The new shelter is located just west of the intersection of 19th Street and 32nd Avenue NW. If you would like more information, please contact:
