We provide animal welfare services to serve the best interests of our community's animals.


PAWS, the Paradise Animal Welfare Society, provides animal welfare services in Crested Butte and surrounding areas north of Round Mountain. Our specific objectives are assistance with animal rescue, spay/neuter assistance, foster care, pet placements, prevention of animal cruelty and neglect, and educating the public about our furry friends. We are a "no kill" facility.
