As you look at them, please give them serious consideration.

We continue to rescue unwanted and stray dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens, and are now able to provide the public the opportunity to meet and get acquainted with these precious little ones. If you are interested in adopting, please e-mail Carol at pawspawscs@yahoo.com for an application, and she will get back to you as soon as possible. If you live in the area, please come see us!! If not, please keep us in your thoughts. We need monetary donations badly in order to keep this wonderful operation going, so, if you are able, please send whatever you can. At the present time, PAWS' Place is full of kitty grins and doggy smiles. Please help us keep it that way!!


WHO WE ARE Pets Are Worth Saving,Inc. (PAWS) is a not-for-profit, no-kill animal welfare organization. PAWS was founded as a means of dealing with the increase in the animal population--specifically dogs and cats--in the Union County (Illinois) area. PAWS was formed primarily to prevent the destruction of valuable, adoptable animals. PAWS is solely funded by donations and fund raisers. PAWS rescues and makes available for adoption homeless and unwanted animals.

Adopting a Friend Adoption Fees: ONLY ILLINOIS CHECKS WITH PROPER ID CAN BE ACCEPTED. WE ASK OUR OUT OF STATE ADOPTERS TO PLEASE BRING CASH. WE ARE NOT EQUIPPED TO TAKE CREDIT OR DEBIT CARDS.

Dogs: Dogs: The adoption fee for PAWS' puppies and small dogs under the age of three is $200. The adoption fee for PAWS' large dogs one year of age and over is $175, and for small dogs three years of age and over is $175. Occasionally, the adoption fee will be higher and, if that is the case, it will be noted on the animal's profile. When you adopt your new dog or puppy, it will be spayed or neutered, wormed, micro-chipped, and up to date on its shots, with the exception of its rabies shot, which must be given by a vet.

Cats: The adoption fee for all PAWS' kittens and cats is $75. When you adopt your new cat or kitten, it will be spayed or neutered, wormed, micro-chipped, and up to date on its shots, with the exception of its rabies shot, which must be given by a vet.

We certainly recommend that you continue your pet's routine vaccination regimen with your veterinarian.

SAME DAY ADOPTIONS ARE NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE, SO IF YOU ARE DRIVING FROM A DISTANCE, PLEASE MAKE ADVANCE ARRANGEMENTS.
