Antigua's Sanctuary for Dogs & Cats

PAAWS (Protect Antiguan Animals With a Smile), registered March 1996, has its Animal Rescue and Re-homing Centre located in Parham, Antigua and is licensed by the Dog Registration and Control Authority. 

PAAWS is associated with the RSPCA and has been a member of the Caribbean Animal Welfare Group. 

In the past 11 years PAAWS has helped over 1,400 dogs and cats to find new loving & caring homes.

PAAWS is a no-kill shelter, which gives priority care to abandoned, neglected or abused animals.

Help us save lives and fight animal cruelty!




Bill and Nora with Hope, who was born without front legs,
have stepped away from PAAWS to allow others eager to serve to take
the responsibility to meet the needs of the animals in our care.

Your continued support for PAAWS will be greatly appreciated.
