Welcome to the Plett Animal Welfare Services (PAWS) providing care for animals in impoverished communities in the Greater Plettenberg Bay Area (Bitou).

PAWS Credo:
- PAWS’ core function is to prevent cruelty to animals through proactive and reactive work
- We are a Pro-Life organisation, meaning that we do everything in our power, medically, physically, socially & emotionally, before considering euthanasia.
- We acknowledge that euthanasia is not an action to be taken lightly, all animals have the right to life, and there is never a justification in taking a life.
- We educate and offer assistance before confiscating any animal
- We strive to work with the community, enhancing the relationship between human and animal
- We acknowledge that every animal must be assessed individually and treated with love and respect.
- Our organisation has been created to sustain the welfare of animals and in doing so we will do whatever necessary to rescue, rehome and rehabilitate the animals that have been forgotten in our community.

- PAWS deals with emergency call-outs of lost and found animals and abuse reports.
