Petersburg Animal Welfare Society
Our future Petersburg Animal Shelter will be located somewhere in the City of Petersburg on a wonderful piece of land that has yet to be identified, properly zoned and affordably acquired. The animal shelter building shown below is, at this time a wish, a hope and a dream. We've acquired a non-profit 501(c)(3) which will be called the Petersburg Animal Welfare Society or P.A.W.S. for short!
Our present old 1200 square foot cinder block building was built in 1976. In case you have never been to the present Shelter, you can see it for yourself at 1600 Johnson Road. Perhaps if you stop by you will then want to become a part of this community initiative. Together, we can make the new shelter a reality.
How Can I Help?
We will depend on donations & grants to fund our mission of making possible the building a new state of the art animal shelter in Petersburg, Va. All donations are INCOME TAX DEDUCTIBLE as provided by IRS regulations. We will welcome donations of any size.
