SAVING LIVES.  Providing Care.  Finding Forever Homes.

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.

Our Amazon Charity List is up and running!  You can purchase items right online and have them delivered to us!

Did you know that when you shop through Amazon a portion of your purchase can go towards the homeless animals at Paws?  That's right!

Go to and type in Floyd County Humane Society (it's Paws' legal name) in Charles City, Iowa!  Bookmark that page so your purchases count!
