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 organization.  Our mission is to advocate for the humane, compassionate, and responsible treatment of all animals by promoting and funding spaying and neutering efforts, as well as supporting other initiatives that provide care and comfort to animals in need.

Please note that we no longer have a foster program, and cannot accept any new animals for adoption.
