The Public Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) was founded in 1976. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization considered to be one of Ohio’s most reputable long-standing cat and dog humane rescue groups.

Animals in the News - Cleveland Plain Dealer
December 27, 2013: The 49-year-old Cleveland resident has headed PAWS for nine years. Founded in 1976, PAWS is a network of 45 foster homes that rescues more than 500 dogs and cats each year from the streets and government shelters.
"Amy literally sleeps with her cell phone," PAWS volunteer coordinator Carol Triefler wrote in her nomination letter. "She has crawled in the mud under a shed to rescue freezing puppies; tramped through filth and feces in a condemned house to rescue 200 Labrador retrievers; spearheaded an expedition to New Orleans to bring back 20 Katrina dogs and 12 cats; hand-fed countless abandoned litters of kittens; and nursed and prayed for far too many that died in her arms."
