Your support helps to ensure homeless pets in our shelter receive lifesaving medical care and our outreach programs continue to grow to benefit both people and animals. Your generosity helps make Paws Humane Society the leading force in fighting pet overpopulation.

Meet Candie.

Today, we need your help. We’re reaching out to the entire Paws Humane Society family – thousands of animal advocates like you – in hopes you can help us find a very special dog a very deserving home. Candie is a three-year-old mixed breed dog who came to Paws Humane as a stray rescued from Columbus Animal Care and Control. She’s been waiting longer than most to find her forever home. More than 400 days to be exact.

That’s nearly half her life.

Paws Humane’s Foster program allows our volunteers to open their homes to puppies and kittens as well as sick, injured, and behaviorally challenged animals while they are preparing for adoption.
