Check out our CEO’s monthly blog to stay informed with pet related issues in the Chattahoochee Valley.

It’s Time to Talk about Cats

To say that cats are controversial is an understatement. I and many others, some of them innocent bystanders, have been held hostage in city council meetings battling over the merits vs. the dangers felines pose to society. Knowing cats the way I do I’m pretty sure...

No-Kill by 2025

Best Friends Animal Society, based in Kanab, Utah is a mover and shaker in the animal welfare world. Just a couple of years ago they came out with an incredibly bold vision to achieve a no-kill nation by the end of 2025. It’s a moonshot at which some may scoff....

Hurricane Barry Disaster Relief

Hurricane season hit early this year. In fact, we got our first call in mid-July, coincidentally the same day we had set a meeting to review our hurricane response protocol to ensure that it was up-to-date. Tropical Storm Barry was threatening to swamp Plaquemines...

We Do This Together

You have, no doubt, read about animal hoarders and puppy mills, discovered and then broken up by law enforcement. Too many of these cases occur right here in West Georgia. Just a few short months ago 700 dogs and puppies were seized from a puppy mill in Berrien...

4th Annual Barks and Blues Festival

Saturday, May 11th marks the date of the fourth annual Paws Humane Society Barks & Blues Festival. What began as a modest attempt to bring more families onto the Paws campus drew such a crowd that we had to move it to Woodruff Park last year. This year we expect...

700

Berrien County made national news during the first week of March but not all news is good news. Instead, this community learned they were home to one of the largest dog breeding operations ever busted in Georgia. Over 700 dogs and puppies were pulled out of a facility...

A New Year’s Resolution That Sticks

I’m not crazy about New Year’s Resolutions, mostly because I’m not so great at following through with them. I don’t know about you, but my resolutions tend to be pretty self-centered, growing out of a desire to improve my quality of life. In any given year this has...

The Joys of Pet Parenthood

I find it hard to imagine, though I really do understand, that pet parenthood is not for everyone. Having pets is a lifestyle choice that is not to be taken lightly. These critters depend on us for literally everything, from the most basic necessities to the niceties...

If Not For You

At Paws Humane Society, our mission is to be a resource to companion animals and the people who love them. The product of a merger between the Muscogee County Humane Society and PAWS Columbus, we have been at this for nearly 40 years. To maximize our effectiveness, we...
