Our Mission

The Philippine Animal Welfare Society mission is to protect and advocate for companion animals in need, and to build a humane community that promotes compassion and seeks to strengthen the human-animal bond.

The Need

The Philippine Animal Welfare Society exists to prevent cruelty, alleviate pain, fear and suffering in animals and to promote a society based on humane principles.

The Solution

PAWS has developed programs designed to to promote humane treatment of all animals. The 5 main programs below aim to end pet homelessness through spay/neuter (kapon) initiatives: Clinic Kapon; Kabali-CAT (TNR); Fetch & Fix; Kapon Outreach; Kapon for All Pets.

Our Impact

PAWS campaigns actively against animal cruelty and pet neglect, including activities like dogfights, horse fights, and wild animals being used for entertainment.

PAWS also runs an animal shelter for over 300 cats and dogs rescued from cruelty or neglect. There, animals are rehabilitated in the hope of finding them new homes and a second chance at a good life.

There is also a low-cost clinic that provides veterinary services to the indigent community, including spay and neuter (kapon).
