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
Peanut is a very sweet and very affectionate girl who wants to be with you all the time. She loves to sit on your chest and rub her face with yours. She also loves to sleep with you and oh how she loves to eat! Peanut was owner-relinquished when she came to AC PAW. She has a cleft paw on her right foot due to any injury. The injury has caused her to lose some of her toes and her main pad is missing. On that paw, she does get corns that need to be removed periodically and are removed by simply having them trimmed off. She can't run so a nice quiet home without dogs would be best. She tolerates other cats but would prefer to be with people. Peanut has been in her foster home for over a year now. She does not show well at PetSmart due to all the commotion during adoption hours. Peanut is going on nine years old and her foster parents would love to see her find her forever home. If you think you would like to adopt Peanut or would like more information about her, 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 in 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.
