PAWS is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that began in 1962 by Westport, Connecticut resident Betty Long to rescue homeless dogs and place them in permanent homes. In the early 1980s, rescue efforts were expanded to include cats. For 37 years, PAWS rented space from local boarding kennels & veterinary hospitals. As demands increased, PAWS, In 1999 undertook the task of building a shelter of its own, greatly increasing the number of pets they have been able to help. As a registered non-profit, all contributions to PAWS are fully tax-deductible as allowed by law.
