PAWS is dedicated to providing affordable spay and neuter services as the primary way of decreasing pet overpopulation and controlling the number of unwanted, neglected and abandoned pets in Pamlico County and surrounding areas.

We are a North Carolina 501(3)(c) non-profit organization striving to provide a better life for local animals. While our primary mission is assisting with the cost of spaying and neutering to reduce the number of animals euthanized in shelters, we are also dedicated to “Helping the Helpless” by educating the community about humane and responsible pet ownership and helping needy pets by providing dog and cat food from our Pet Pantry. Our New leash on Life program through the Pamlico Correctional Institution is over 2 years old and found homes for over 60 shelter/rescue dogs. PAWS relies solely on our fundraising activities and your generous, tax-deductible contributions. Thank you for supporting us.
