Our Programs

PAWS provides low cost spay & neuter, vaccine clinic, and help animals at San Jose Animal Care Center. PAWS believes in population control for all our companion animals, to reduce euthanasia (kill) rates at shelters. The Humane Society of the United States estimates 2.7 million healthy shelter pets are not adopted each year. There are several methods for birth control. The most common method is to have the animal spayed or neutered.
