Donations are a vital part of the AC PAW existence. Without your help, AC PAW’s success would not be possible. 94% of every dollar raised is used for direct care (food, kennels, veterinarian care, etc.) for the thousands of dogs and cats we save.

AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK
Cooper was found covered in flies and scabs on the Fourth of July. He was very thin with little energy left to walk. He mustered up all the strength he had to get in the back of the Jeep of his rescuer and laid there contently until after he ate a meal and had a drink. Later that day, he perked up enough to go into the house to sleep on a comfortable bed in the kennel. Over the last three months, Cooper has put on over 25 pounds, has learned basic commands and manners, and has loved being a companion. Cooper is very laid back while in the house, but needs to go outside for exercise and play on a regular basis. He does best with two long walks each day. Cooper gets along with the other dogs in his foster home, but needs a firm reminder of his place in the home. He would not do well in a home that has dominant dogs. Cooper is trying very hard to get along with the cat in his foster home, but has to be closely supervised and reminded often to "leave it". He would do best in a home with no cats or other small animals as he likes to chase things that move quickly. He has not been around small children, but has been around children older than 8 and has done well. Cooper needs an experienced owner who will be dedicated to being a strong leader and continue with his training. He has a fun personality and learns things quickly. Cooper loves to cuddle and give kisses. He rides great in the car, behaves well at the vet, and was reported to be an excellent dog by the owners of the kennel in which he has stayed. If you are interested in adopting Cooper or would like to set up a meet and greet, please fill out our pre-adoption questionnaire or contact us today.
Every year between 6 to 8 million dogs and cats enter shelters across the United States. Out of that number, 3 to 4 million are euthanized simply because there are not enough homes for them.

AC PAW started as a vision of two people, Brian Manley and June McGrath, to ensure a safe haven for animals from abuse, hunger, disease, and death. AC PAW was founded to give these animals a second chance at life. We all know too well the over-population problem happening at animal shelters, so one of our core missions is to spay/neuter all of our rescued animals prior to adoption. We are officially begining our 20th year of volunteer service, with a handful of dedicated volunteers and a small number of donors. AC PAW began on July 1, 1995 and was officially incorporated on Jan 16, 1996. During this time we have rescued and placed over 9,000 dogs and cats into loving homes. We are always looking for animal lovers willing to put some time and effort into volunteering or becoming a foster home. Any kind of donations such as financial support, pet food, litter, blankets, towels, collars, or any kind of miscellaneous items would also be greatly appreciated.
