Their Work

The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) has been dedicated to the protection of animals and the promotion of humane treatment since 1954.  It runs an animal shelter that currently houses 45 dogs and 186 cats rescued from cruelty or neglect.  The volunteer-based organization rehabilitates these animals in the hope of finding them new homes and a second chance at a good life.  The PAWS shelter also serves as an animal-welfare information center and a low-cost spay-neuter clinic.  It receives an average of 50 calls a day concerning animal welfare, care, and control, and helps local government officials with many animal-related challenges.  PAWS campaigns actively against dogfights, horsefights, and wild animals being used for entertainment. It lobbied for the Philippine Animal Welfare Act, passed in 1998 - the country's first national law prohibiting cruelty to animals.

SPCA International is pleased to honor PAWS with a Shelter of the Week grant that will go toward purchasing large water tanks.  With no running water at the shelter, these tanks will make caring for the many dogs and cats in residence easier for staff and volunteers.
