Paws and Claws receives no financial support from any government agencies to cover the costs incurred in providing for the animals under our care. Most of our operational expenses are supported by donations from members of the Rochester and surrounding communities. Without the generous support of these individuals and businesses, Paws and Claws would be unable to care for the animals that depend on us. Almost 80% of our operational budget goes directly to animal care.
It also takes the efforts of many many volunteers and many fundraisers for Paws and Claws Humane Society to be able to rescue, shelter and place for adoption over 1000 cats and dogs each year. Often the pets require medical attention (sometimes quite serious) and that can be very expensive too. We encourage you help in any way you can. Click on the links below for ways you can help.
