About

PAWS is a no-kill animal shelter serving neglected and abused pets in our community

PAWS is a nonprofit organization founded in 1962 by Westport, CT resident Betty Long. We are a true no-kill shelter, and will do whatever it takes, however long it takes, to find suitable, loving homes for the animals in our care.

With your help, we can continue to provide the veterinary care, food, and temporary housing to the neglected and abused animals in our community until we find them loving, forever homes.
