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, veternarian care, etc.) for the thousands of dogs and cats we save.

AC PAW PET OF THE WEEK!
Skyler is one of our special needs cats. She was owner-relinquished as her owner could no longer care for her. Skyler is an older kitty and this sudden change in her life was very sad and confusing for her. Skyler's only special need will require that she be on a special diet of food that supports urinary tract health. This is a small thing to ask for a sweet girl that has so much love to give in return. Skyler is 11 years old, but still has many quality years left to be your best friend and companion. She is a beautiful tiger and white cat with short hair. You can meet Skyler during our adoption hours at PetSmart or for more information on her, please 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 19th 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 nearly 8,000 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.
