Support PAWS


A critical aspect of the success of our operation is the recruitment of volunteers. Volunteering your time is one of the best ways to help the animals.  Persons are continually needed to assist with the cleaning, care and exercising of the animals.  Whether you can help walk dogs, clean cages, or assist with a fund-raising event, you can make a difference in each of the animal’s lives.








The PAWS Humane Society relies on public support to continue to provide for the needs of our animals. Monetary donations are always needed and welcomed! We would also appreciate it if you would consider donating anything on our wish list, such as bag of food on a regular basis or even just your time in volunteering.

Donate towards our Rummage Sale Fundraiser!

Fall Rummage Sale!

Our Annual Fall Rummage Sale is BACK!

Please save the date and plan to shop our sale Saturday, October 17th from 8-1pm at the Columbus Club in Charles City!

We are looking for donations of items that are in GOOD condition that can be dropped off at the shelter during adoption hours - Saturday 11-2 or Sunday 1-4pm!

We also NEED VOLUNTEERS to help on Thursday unloading the trailer beginning at 5pm and volunteers all day Friday, helping set up!

This is one of our biggest fundraisers, but also requires a lot of help from multiple people.  If your high school student needs silver cord hours, have them stop out and help!

We will begin accepting donations on September 1st.  Drop them off at the shelter anytime and a volunteer will put them in our trailer.
