PAWS is a non profit registered charity in Edmonton. We rehabilitate and re-home abandoned, abused, neglected and unwanted animals. We are run by a group of dedicated volunteers who give personal time to helping the animals that come into our care.
We operate a shelter for abandoned animals, a daycare and offer grooming services that along with donations and fundraising go to ensuring that dogs in our care get proper vet treatment, training and rehabilitation. We rely on our our amazing foster homes to provide longer term care as we search for a suitable forever homes.
We adhere to Force Free training methods and we are a member of Alberta Force Free Alliance.

PAWS for Life Foundation is run solely by volunteers. We ask for your patience in waiting for a response from us. Our volunteers also have jobs, families, and personal obligations and sometimes it can take a few days for a volunteer to get in contact with you.
