Paw Works helping make Ventura County Animal Shelters no kill

 By Debra Tash

On Saturday and Sunday, September 6th and 7th, noon to 5pm, Paw Works was at the Thousand Oaks Mall to help find forever homes for a few of their furry friends.  Founded by Christina Morgan, Esq CEO and Chad Atkins COO, Paw Works started in January just this year.  Their mission states:  “Paw Works represents a unique partnership between public animal services and the private sector to establish a No Kill shelter system.”

They have already saved 500 former four-pawed inmates of the Ventura County Animal shelters from an uncertain future.  Paw Works plans to be out again every weekend until the end of September.  Volunteers foster the animals, giving them a chance to heal, and also train the animals to make sure they are on their best behavior for their new humans.  The group charges $200 per animal for adoption.  It goes to Paw Work’s newly formed 501 (c) (3) and helps defray the cost of shots, spaying/neutering for each and every critter in their care.

On August 10th, 2014 the group organized an exodus of rescued animals to Puyallup Washington.

Their goal is make certain Ventura County Animal Shelters maintain their 94% adoption rate.  They would love to see every animal in need find its forever home.  Visit them on Facebook or their website to see where their adoption even will be or view the animals available for adoption.

Come see for yourself.   You may have a furry friend waiting there for you.
