PAWS Position Statement

PAWS does not view euthanasia as a compassionate or sustainable means of managing the stray dog and cat overpopulation problem in Mauritius. 

PAWS primary mission through our education programs is to inform the public of the dire need for sterilization and provide subsidized and low cost sterilizations to pets of those who come from financially disadvantaged households. Although we do ask for minimum donations, no animal will ever be refused sterilization because of lack of funds. 

PAWS provides an extensive island-wide adoption service to place appropriate animals in safe, responsible homes and practices TNR (trap/neuter/release) whenever appropriate.

At PAWS, we uphold that there are no "throwaway" animals.

PAWS will always do the very best we can for each individual animal.

When there is no other way to help alleviate further suffering and hardship, PAWS accepts to humanely euthanize the animal.
