Paws and Claws Humane Society of Rochester Minnesota, strives to promote and provide humane protection and shelter for abandoned or lost companion animals, and seek adoptive homes for companion animals under their protective care.
Our Mission The Paws & Claws Mission is to:
* Promote and provide humane protection and shelter for abandoned or lost companion animals.
* Seek adoptive homes for companion animals under our protective care.
* Provide public education regarding the societal problem of animal overpopulation.
* Promote the principles of responsible companion animal care.
* Advocate the spaying and neutering of all companion animals.
Paws & Claws does not euthanize except on the advice of a veterinarian in the case of critical injury, terminal illness, debilitating pain, or severe behavioral problem in which the animal is a danger to themselves, other animals or humans.
Monetary Donations: Paws and Claws receives no financial support from any government agencies to cover the costs incurred in providing for the animals under our care. Most of our operational expenses are supported by donations from members of the Rochester community, and of surrounding communities. Without the generous support of these individuals and businesses, Paws and Claws would be unable to care for the animals that depend on us. 76% of our operational budget goes directly to animal care.
