What The Caws is All About

The CAWS is committed to being the leader in next-generation animal welfare and rescue groups. We will be proactively developing a full-range of programs and services dedicated to helping people connect with lifelong companions and working with those that want to keep their relationships with their current pets balanced and happy.

On every level of interaction we strive to create positive, hopeful experiences that can change lives. Our pet residents will always be provided a healthy, safe, loving environment in either our Adoption Program or our Guardian Angel Program. Our supporters can expect to be treated with compassion and respect, and you can trust in our integrity, dedication, competence and transparent accountability.

Our Mission

We provide assistance to people whose lives are in transition by:

Providing temporary care for pets until they can be reunited with their family through our Guardian Angel Program (GAP)
