Give a homeless pet the ultimate gift: a loving forever family. PAWS’ matchmaking program brings together rescued pets and caring adopters ready to give them a new life. We strive to make the perfect match based on animals’ individual personalities and needs and adopters’ skills and preferences. The result? A priceless bond that lasts a lifetime.
Pictured: Benji was matched with Kristen, a wonderful first-time adopter who helped him make a smooth transition from a frightened shelter dog to a beloved family pet.
"We feel so lucky to have him for cuddles, play time, and long walks, and could not be more grateful to have him as a lifelong companion. Thank you so much for all you do and for bringing Benji to us!"
