Rockwall PAWS is a 501 (c) (3) organization formed to help animals in Rockwall and the surrounding area. Rockwall PAWS works in support of the Rockwall Animal Shelter now operated for the City of Rockwall as the ‘Collin County Humane Society @ Rockwall Animal Adoption Center. CCHS@RAAC maintains a 97 – 98 % LIVE OUTCOME and Rockwall PAWS works to help make that happen through several programs.
a) “Save a Heart – Save a Life” is a program initiated by Rockwall PAWS in 2010 to provide funds for the treatment of Heartworm Positive shelter dogs at the Rockwall Animal Adoption Center and is now helping Royse City shelter dogs. Heartworm Positive dogs were previously considered unadoptable and prior to this program ALL HW positive shelter dogs were euthanized. Heartworm disease is easily prevented but very expensive to treat and is fatal if untreated. Over 110 heartworm positive dogs have been helped.
b) “Litter-Free Rockwall” by Rockwall PAWS sponsors low-cost spay/neuter clinics in partnership with Spay Neuter Network. Spay Neuter Network prices for care are very reasonable, but Rockwall PAWS offers financial assistance to those still in need of help getting their animal(s) ‘fixed’. Spay/neuter is the #1 method of reducing the number of unwanted and homeless animals that enter any shelter.
c) We encourage Shelter Adoption! All dogs and cats adopted from the Rockwall Shelter are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, wormed, checked for heartworm, and microchipped. We assist in adoption events and invite anyone wishing to add a family member with four PAWS to visit:
CCHS @ Rockwall Animal Adoption Center, 1825 Airport Road, Rockwall, TX, or call 972-771-7750, Ext 1.
Royse City Animal Shelter, 1101 N. Josephine St, Royse City, TX 75189. Phone: 972-635-6609
Both facilities are full of wonderful animals needing FOREVER HOMES.
Rockwall PAWS is excited to continue working to serve the animals in our community. To learn more or to make a donation to these programs please visit http://www.RockwallPAWS.org or you may mail a donation to Rockwall PAWS, PO Box 44, Rockwall, TX 75087
