PAWS, Promotion of Animal Welfare Society
- Pet Care & Supplies
PAWS, Promotion of Animal Welfare Society was established in 1981. PAWS is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide low-cost spaying, neutering, and some minor medical services for pets of low-income people and the general public. PAWS strives to lower the dog and cat population in Butte County in an attempt to lessen the neglect, suffering, and death of the numerous animals that cannot find good homes. Every loving pet deserves a quality of life that includes a loving home.
PAWS Thrift & Gift Shop is located at 3557 OroDam Blvd. in Oroville (534-5713) in the same building as our spay-neuter clinic. Hours are 10:00 to 5:00 M-Th, 10:00 to 4:00 on Friday, and 10:00 to 2:00 on Saturday. We sell only good quality merchandise including gently used and new clothing for men, women and children, housewares, jewelry, novelty items, books, and many more wonderful things. Proceeds go to help spay and neuter dogs and cats. Please drop in and shop with us. We take VISA and ATM.
We are always in need of cash donations from the community to help our program and to assist financing our spay-neuter clinic. Please mail to PAWS, PO Box 5715, Oroville, CA 95965.
