As you read this, another innocent animal is being deliberately abused, neglected
or forced into fighting. Every day, helpless dogs, cats, kittens and puppies are subject to the cruelest of treatment. The shocking number of animal cruelty cases reported every day is just the tip of the iceberg as most cases are never reported. At PAWS, we take our commitment to rescuing these voiceless victims very seriously and do everything within our power to treat them for injuries and illness, and find them safe, loving forever homes.
Animal abuse and cruelty are not only the actions of an individual or small group. They can be widespread and carried out by businesses and large corporations. Countless puppy mills
are still in operation across the world, many right here in Ohio. Filthy, overcrowded, inhumane conditions are the norm for these businesses, and death and disease run rampant all in the name of profit. Some corporations still use animals for testing, subjecting them to cruel, painful punishment to test products before selling them to the public.
PAWS recognizes that there is more than just a need to rescue these animals, there is a need to expose these business
and change the laws
that govern those who would abuse them.
