about the p.a.w.s. fund

Poor Animals Welfare and Surgical Fund

Since the P.A.W.S Fund was formed, Prince William County Animal Shelter has asked for a lot of help, and thanks to your donations PWHS has been able to answer their calls. We have paid more than $27,000 for medications, preventative treatments and Feline FIV/FeLV test kits just to keep the homeless pets at the Shelter healthy and ready for adoption. You also answered our cries for help when we got the calls to help 30 sick and injured dogs and cats including:

  • Dexter, the puppy who was thrown from as second floor balcony breaking his leg in 4 places.
  • Sparkle, a beautiful puppy brought in as a stray with a broken leg.
  • Ruby, a stray with a fractured cheekbone.
  • Romeo, who needed his leg amputated.
  • Sparky, the cat with a huge tumor on her leg.
  • Blu, with a prolapsed uterus.

We are happy to say that all of them found forever homes and are doing wonderfully. As can be imagined, there is a constant request for help from our P.A.W.S. Fund and thanks to you, our very generous donors, we have been able to do exactly what we had hoped when we created this fund…SAVE LIVES.





Thank you for making a difference in the lives of countless pets. Without your donations, gifts and support this wouldn't be possible. Please be sure to read some of the success stories of the pets below.

How your gifts have changed the lives of these sweet pets

Jack Frost

Emaciated and near death, Jack Frost was brought to the PWC Animal Shelter and they immediately called PW Humane Society for help. He was rushed to Minnieville Animal Hospital for x-rays and emergency surgery only to find the culprit was a squeaker from a dog toy lodged in his intestines.
Without such quick action by Shelter personnel, he could easily have died. The Vet bills exceeded $1000. Thanks to the P.A.W.S. fund, Jack's life was saved and he was able to find his forever home.


This sweet senior is 16 years old and was brought in to the Prince William County Animal Shelter injured by a relative who can’t afford to provide the necessary veterinary care. The owner has Alzheimer’s and is in a home. The pup is limping on front left leg and the veterinarian suspects that it might be fractured. Please help us get this pet the necessary treatment!

Millie got her cast off this week & is now getting used to walking normally again. This sweet & gentle lady is such a joy to have around. Millie is so beautiful because she gets a lot of beauty sleep during the day but loves to snuggle with her people in the evening. She is friendly to everyone & all dogs that she meets & would love a play mate who would enjoy playing with her. Millie does not like car rides & exploring new places much, she prefers to stay indoors & keep you company. If you have a place for this adorable & sweet senior citizen please contact the Adopt Shop at 703-634-0880 to set up a meet & greet with her foster.
