P.A.W.S. Humane Center



You may have seen the news story regarding Bela, the German Shepherd dog being housed at PAWS Humane Center. We would like to take a moment to clarify the circumstances of Bela’s stay at our Center. 

Legally, Bela is considered the property of the estate of the deceased person and not PAWS Humane Center.  He is only being housed and cared for at our Center while legal proceedings with the estate are being finalized. 

PAWS has no legal right or control over his outcome.  Bela will not be euthanized at our facility, either by PAWS staff or the Dearborn County Animal Control Officers.  If a euthanization decision is reached by the estate, then it will be the responsibility of the estate to make those arrangements elsewhere.

 This matter is still being decided by the estate's legal representation.  Any information in regard to donating to him when and if they decide to transport Bela will be released by the lawyer’s office, and local media will be notified immediately.

We appreciate your care and concern for Bela and all of the animals in Dearborn County.




Stop by PAWS Humane Center and see the new, lovely Memorial Gardens. This is a lovely spot to sit and rest with a Center dog while out for a walk.
