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.

PAWS Adoption Event!

We are offering all our cats and kittens for the bargain price of just $25, from now until the end of the year! This will include all the same benefits that we currently have for our cats:

spay or neuter

rabies shot



feline leukemia and FIV testing

Revolution (flea treatment) upon intake and adoption

This is an extraordinarily good deal, as this is a HUGE savings to the potential adopter!

With this event, we still have the same adoption process in place, as we still want the best forever homes for our fabulous felines!

Come on in and check them out—you won’t be sorry you did!

You can also see them online at www.pawsofgreenecounty.org

Any questions, give us a call at 515-386-9814 and leave a message;

someone will return your call within 24 hours!
