Featured Pets


7 years old

Mastiff/Pit Bull Terrier mix  

Female - Spayed


 Our MOCHA is just so sweet - standing on her three legs, wagging her tail and poking her nose forward to say, "hello."   This 7-year-old pup uses a wheelchair for supporting her three legs.  She LOVES to be near people and is so happy and grateful for any attention.  She is very good natured and gentle.  She thinks she is a lap dog, so be prepared to deal with a big gal who thinks she is a Yorkshire Terrier!  This special “special needs girl” comes with her own wheelchair.


Domestic Short Hair 

Orange Tabby

Male - Neutered


Tugs is a real charmer.  He's friendly, smart, and loving.  He will be a perfect furbaby for your family.

Since the P.A.W.S. Humane Center opened in October, 2011 we have:

  • adopted 3,806 dogs and cats into their loving forever homes.
  • reunited 562 lost pets with their very relieved owners.
  • placed 1,175 dogs and cats with approved rescue groups who found them great homes..
  • provided financial assistance to Dearborn County residents to help defray the cost of spaying and neutering their companion animals.

Raising these funds is a daunting task!

However, we look forward with confidence because we, and the animals, HAVE YOU!

Got Love?

What does the P.A.W.S. Humane Center mean to me? . . .

“P.A.W.S. Humane Center offers a new chance at life for the animals we shelter, and an opportunity to add life to the families who adopt them” – Pat Hawkins, P.A.W.S. Board Member

“I like to think our Center is a bridge between what was . . . and what can be . . .a restoration of love, integrity and self-esteem for these precious pets.  They deserve our best.”  - Becky Foster, P.A.W.S. Volunteer

"Puppy dog tails, purring kittens and seniors - all with a story to tell.  A temporary home with food, shelter, staff and volunteers - devoted to their care and welfare. Love, laughter, tears and joy - when they find their forever homes." - Barb Dennis, P.A.W.S. Volunteer

"Where best friends are made." - Jeremy Hollin, P.A.W.S. Humane Center Staff
