The Animal Welfare Society, Inc. (AWS) was founded in 1965 as an independent, non-profit, non-destroy animal rescue organization. Our mission is to offer refuge to homeless and abandoned dogs and cats and place them in loving, responsible homes. Animal Welfare Society
Our shelter and the services we provide our animals are solely dependent upon the concern and generosity of the people and businesses in our community. We do not receive any public funds. We place many dogs and cats over the course of a year, but many more are waiting for the opportunity to come to our shelter. We encourage you to learn more about our organization, mission, work, shelter activities, as well as how you can help make it all possible through your membership, financial donations, sponsorship and volunteer support.
Animal Welfare Society is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are generally tax-deductible.

We are so very grateful for your support.
