PAWS Cats & Dogs of the Month


  • PAWS Reading Program
    The PAWS Reading Program is an opportunity for elementary-age students to come to PAWS and read to cats. The program is open to the community every first and third Tuesday of the month, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at PAWS. Reading to cats, serves to socialize the cats and provide a non-threatening reading environment for kids to develop their literary skills. More Information.
