Building Relationships, Saving Lives
At Paws Humane, we understand the importance and value of the human-animal bond. Therefore, all of our community outreach efforts reflect our goal of promoting animal welfare, preventing the overpopulation of pets and improving the lives of not only animals, but the community as a whole.
Paws is proud to be mirroring the Pets For Life model, a program developed by The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) that uses innovative outreach strategies to extend animal services, resources, and information to underserved communities. Through Pets for Life, Paws Humane offers outreach services such as free or low-cost spay/neuter surgeries, educational events that include pet care and training, and humane education. By comprehensively addressing the lack of accessible, affordable pet care in under-served communities, Pets for Life keeps pets in the homes they already have, improving their quality of life and elevating the human-animal bond.
Paws Humane has also developed partnerships with other animal welfare organizations and service providers to improve the lives of pets and their owners. Pets for Life builds humane communities using innovative strategies and fresh approaches designed to extend the reach of animal services, resources, and information to underserved areas. Addressing the critical need for accessible, affordable pet care, our program helps animals by empowering the people who care for them. Pets for Life embraces the human component of the human-animal equation by approaching people in a respectful way and recognizing that people’s love for their pets transcends socioeconomic circumstances and cultural differences. Building trustful relationships with people and establishing an ongoing presence in the community is critical to making a real impact. Experience has shown us that when we extend our compassion to human beings as well as animals, we can create long-term and meaningful social change.
