... 105 years in dog years, that is! PAWS just celebrated their 15th year of being advocates for our animal friends in Jackson Hole. Amy Romaine, Executive Director, and Bobbie Whelan, Program Director, shared with us the story of their organization They work with several other organizations in the valley to provide support for pets and their owners, from offering a spay and neuter program to advocacy for dog parks and other recreational opportunities for our furry friends.
PAWS was instrumental in working with the local animal shelters to become no-kill facilities,and to help the Animal Adoption Center get established. They also administer a fund for low-income pet-owners to have costly but necessary medical procedures performed on their pet, averaging 65 pets a year that are saved by getting the necessary help.
