Welcome to P.A.W.S. of Michigan

P.A.W.S. (Precious Animal Welfare Society) of Michigan is a 501 (c) (3), all-volunteer group that promotes the humane, compassionate, and responsible treatment of all animals.  It is our mission to protect and care for homeless animals by placing them with loving foster families until compatible permanent homes can be found, and to engage in benevolent and charitable activities to support this goal.

Save a life!  Spay or neuter your pets!

PAWS in the Park 2014 is a huge success!

Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with their pets on September 13 at Paws in the Park.  Despite being a little chilly and very windy, a good time was had by all, and over $13,000 was raised to help the animals in our program. Thanks, too, to all of our sponsors, vendors, and volunteers and bakers for making the day possible.  We appreciate all of you more than you know!   Please support our sponsors whenever you can:
