feature   The Virginia Partnership for Animal Welfare and Support (VA PAWS) was formed in 1998 and serves the New River Valley including the counties of Floyd, Giles, Montgomery, Pulaski, and the city of Radford. VA PAWS believes the problems faced by many companion animals in today’s world – overpopulation, neglect, abandonment, abuse and euthanasia – can only be permanently resolved by addressing their causes. Most of the suffering can be traced back to irresponsible breeding, irresponsible ownership and inadequate animal welfare legislation and enforcement. VA PAWS seeks to ease this suffering and work towards its elimination through five goals:
  1. Education, Public Outreach, and Spay/Neuter Services
  2. Support and Encouragement of Other Groups
  3. Promotion of Policies and Efforts Incorporating Animals into Daily Life
  4. Improvement of Animal Legislation at Local and State Levels
  5. Rescue, Placement, and Referral
