PAWS philosophy is that kindness to animals helps build a better world for all of us. Through the generosity of other caring individuals, we can ensure that animals who come into the care of PAWS will never again be alone, hungry, sick, afraid, or in pain.
The Public Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) was founded in 1976. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization considered to be one of Ohio’s most reputable long-standing cat and dog humane rescue groups.
Our group is dedicated to the rescue of pets in Northeastern Ohio. Our mission is to rescue stray and/or abused cats and dogs and place them in good homes. It is a PAWS policy to adopt animals to responsible homes only in the greater Cleveland area. We provide medical care to rescued animals and foster them in our own homes. We also make sure that they are spayed or neutered so that they do not continue the cycle of births that result in more pets than homes. The advantage of adopting a fostered animal is that we know all about our adoptable pets! They have lived with us and we know their personalities, habits, likes and dislikes. We can help you find the perfect companion for your home and lifestyle! We are a no kill organization (the only time we euthanize is on the advice of a vet in order to end suffering where no hope of recovery exists).
Everything we do is out of love for the animals.

CLEVELAND - A dog shot in a Cleveland Heights park led federal authorities to investigate
the home of Raymone Clements. Now a jury has convicted him of being a felon in possession
of a gun and ammo.
Raymone "Ramone" Clements was found guilty following a jury trial of one count each of being a felon in possession of a firearm and being a felon in possession of ammunition.
Federal investigators said they were led to Clements after witnesses reported a dog
shot in a Cleveland Heights park. Clements reportedly walked the Mastiff into Forest
Hill's Park in the early evening hours of Nov. 25, 2012, bound him to a tree and
fired four shots at him, striking him at least two times.
Forest has since recovered from his injuries and is living with a loving family.
Court records show Clements had ammo and a gun despite previous convictions for rape (2006), drug trafficking (2003) and aggravated robbery (1991).
"This case demonstrates why rapists and other felons are forbidden from having firearms,” Steven Dettelbach, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, said. “Whether is a person using a gun to commit a violent crime, a felon illegally obtaining ammunition or a straw purchaser trying to circumvent the law, we will aggressively pursue those who would violate our nation’s firearms laws."
Sentencing for Clements has been scheduled for June 13.
