Our mission is "To work as one in helping homeless animals irrespective of breed, location or circumstance." We are a 501(c)(3) mostly volunteer, no-kill rescue. We have two locations, one in Evansville, Indiana and one in Chisney, Indiana. We have helped over 5600 animals find forever homes since we were created in 2010. WE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL ALL PAWS HAVE A HOME!
