If you wish to adopt a PAWS dog or cat, please proceed to the nearest PAWS shelter and choose your dog or cat.
Our adoption fees are:
Rs 600 (for a dog or a pup)
Rs 400 (for a cat or a kitten)
Adoption fees include deworming and vaccination. If old enough, the animal is also already sterilised. Otherwise if you are adopting a puppy or kitten, then at 6 months of age, you can bring back your adopted pet and we will sterilise it for FREE!
After choosing your dog or cat, you will be asked a few questions to assess if you will be a responsible owner.You will then need to fill in a form with your details and then to sign the Adoption agreement which you can read here.
