Welcome to Petersburg Animal Welfare Society or P.A.W.S. for short! Located in the historic City of Petersburg, VA, where Lincoln was filmed, we are a non-profit 501(c)(3).
While working towards the goal of a new shelter for the City, P.A.W.S. is also focused on the health and welfare of the animals in the Tri-Cities area through Spay & Neuter clinics held with Crater Road Veterinary Hospital. We also participate in community events to bring awareness and education to residents of Petersburg and the surrounding areas.
There are many wonderful animals in the City's shelter and surrounding areas that need our help and support. Many families in our community also need access to information and services to better care and support their pets. If you have a pet that needs to be spayed or neutered, or know someone who might benefit from that service, please contact us. Maybe you are just an animal lover who would like to volunteer. We are interested in hearing from you. Donations are also always welcome and tax deductible.
