Although we do ask for minimum donations, NO animal will ever be refused sterilisation because of lack of funds. Please contact the nearest PAWS shelter to speak to receptionist for financial assistance information.
Transportation Services: For sterilisation only
PAWS offers a limited transportation service on certain working days for those pet owners who do not have their own vehicles. As this is a popular service, please call the shelter nearest to you to make an appointment. First come, first served.
We ask for a minimum “fuel” donation depending on distance from shelter however NO pet owner wanting to sterilise their animals will be turned away for lack of funds.
Please speak to receptionist for rates.
All payments for services and transportation should be paid at reception to receive an official PAWS receipt.
