PAWS, People for Animal Welfare Society, is a volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. Our purpose is to promote the humane treatment of Greene County animals by providing humane education, helping with neglect/abuse calls as needed and providing a low income spay/neuter program for Greene County residents who meet the criteria. We also care for the animals at the Greene County Animal Shelter, which is a small shelter for lost and abandoned animals. We strive to find loving, permanent homes for these animals through our adoption program.
Happy Tails
** Join us at Deal's Orchard next Saturday, October 10th from 10am - 2pm.  We'll have some dogs and cats available for adoption along with all the fun at the orchard!
Our annual microchip event is set for Saturday, October 17th from 1-4 pm at Kelso Park in Jefferson, IA.  Bring your dogs, bring your cats - everyone welcome!  The cost is $20 per animal, which includes the microchip implant and registration.  For appointments, email us, Facebook us or call us at our voicemail number - (515)386-9814, leave a message and someone will get back to you about setting up a time. We prefer appointments, but walk-ins are accepted.  If you are a walk-in, please expect a small wait time between scheduled appointments.  Don't miss this event!  If you have a little munchkin who is "a runner", an escape artist, one that likes to check out the neighborhood, or if you just want the peace of mind that if your beloved pet gets lost and ends up at a vet office or shelter, one little chip the size of a grain of rice will identify your pet and get him/her home safe, now is the time!!  Schedule your appointment early - you won't be sorry!
Adopt - don't shop!
