Involved

There is a place in Fort Walton Beach, FL where the abandoned are protected, the hungry are fed, the homeless are sheltered, and the injured are given care. It is your animal shelter, the Humane Society and Adoption Center at PAWS. We want your input and your expertise. Whatever skill you have—we have a use for you! 

PAWS depends on volunteers to contribute their time, energy, & ideas to make PAWS a better place for animals.

Shopping for a cause, donation items, and cash donations are always appreciated by our animals.
