Prairie Paws Animal Shelter, is a non profit, no kill animal shelter. We serve the Ottawa, Kansas area and the surrounding eight counties. Last year we took in over 1,000 homeless, lost and abused animals. We do not euthanize for space and will never stop trying to find new homes for the over 1,000 animals who critically depend on our care.
We need your help to continue to be the voice for the homeless voiceless pets. As you know Prairie Paws keeps it doors open through donations from heroes like you. It doesn't matter if you can give just a little or a lot because it all adds up to help cover medical, food, and sheltering costs.
Currently we have 3 dogs that need medical treatment. Logan is a great dane mix rescued from a kill shelter who tested positive for heartworms. Because of his size it will cost us close to $700.00 to treat him. Aniston is a new mother, a delightful shepherd mix, who was brought to us with a bad hip/leg which most likely will need to be amputated. In tow were her few week old puppies and sadly enough she too tested positive for heart worms. And then we have the lovely Caterina who was previously adopted from us but was returned because she has Ehrlicha (It is a disease transmitted by ticks). A treatable disease but one that also has costs associated with it. These are just a few of the animals you would help by making a donation. We have another 70 needing daily food, flea/tick/ heartworm preventatives, and an air conditioned or heated shelter along with any enrichment we can provide. Please help us help the voiceless. Purrs and tail wags in advance!
