PAWS - Animal Care, Adoption and Education Center

Paws is a no-kill and nonprofit animal welfare center that relies almost solely on private donations to meet our operating expenses.  Our work is performed on a "shoestring budget" with more than 95% of donations directly supporting the costs of animal care. 

We now accept donations through our web site by clicking on the "Donate" button above. Also consider us when estate planning.  You can make a difference in the lives of hundreds of animals in Washington County. 

Donations can also be mailed to:
PAWS Brave Hearts
368 South Street
Calais, ME 04619

 Thank you sincerely for your support!
Your donations may be dropped off at PAWS during our walk-in hours Thursday - Saturday 1-4 pm or by appointment OR arrangement (outside drop off).  In addition to this list, we have an Amazon Wish List that you can view on that site.
