PAWS Introduction & History

 Today, animal welfare in Thane district has reached to a degree where people have started looking up to NGOs for helping an injured animal. All thanks to the Plants & Animals Welfare Society (PAWS) who acted as the guardians of animals and made this day possible where one phone call to the PAWS helpline number takes care of all your problems. The situation was not the same when PAWS started as a young NGO giving first aid to injured animals on the streets. At then PAWS did not have an ambulance, but few dedicated members took on their bikes and the first aid box to avail help for the injured animals on the streets. Time passed by and today PAWS boasts of having a couple of full-fledged ambulances serving to the needs of helpless animals. It’s no longer the same old PAWS. It has evolved to a degree where one can clearly say it has been a revolution, a certain youth movement where volunteers kept joining in the service of animals and the total number has surpassed beyond 200 and it’s increasing every single day.

PAWS – a young NGO that was always determined to stand on its feet inspite of all the hard times. That’s the history of PAWS.

Both the ambulances cover the entire road map of  Kalyan, Dombivli, Ulhasnagar, Ambernath and Badlapur.

Modern and sophisticated equipments like Graspers & Grabbers, first-aid kits, medicines and imported 2 pet carriers are always loaded in the ambulance.

In addition to all this, the NGO has also added up snake and bird rescue accessories to attend maximum cases pertaining to aves and reptile rescue.

    Hi,
    I just came across the web portal PAWS, so would like to offer my help professionally to the organisation, I am an advocate by profession and would like to help in any manner as possible, by providing counselling or taking up any legal matters for the organisation in purely public spirit.
    Therefore a request to the members of the group, that in any event any help is required then kindly contact me. At my email advocatemonish@gmail.com.

    Also I am interested in adoption of a male dog, so what can be done in this regard , if made known to me shall be of great help.

    Regards
