We are PAWS!

PAWS Volunteer Form

Make it Your Lucky Day – Volunteer!

PAWS is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting respect for all living things, as well as attempting to reduce the increasing companion animal population. We have no paid staff, consultants or expensive office space. What we DO have is our volunteers – and the time, energy and expertise that they bring! The more volunteers we have, the more animals we can help and save!

Remember, we are not a shelter; we do not have animals which require care.

There are many ways you can volunteer. In fact, you may have something to offer that we haven’t even thought of yet. We’d love to hear your ideas! Your involvement is the key to our ongoing success. We can’t wait to get you started!!

Our Address:

P.O. Box 861, Hicksville, New York 11802-0861
Phone: (631) 306-4616 

Please remember that adopting a pet from the shelter means that you have saved a life.
