Welcome to Petersburg Animal Welfare Society (P.A.W.S.).  Established in 2010 as a 501-c-3, P.A.W.S. serves Petersburg, southern Chesterfield, Dinwiddie, Prince George, Hopewell, Colonial Heights, Sussex and other points beyond.

  • We offer low cost spay/neuter services to the residents of Petersburg in partnership with Crater Road Veterinary Hospital.
  • Low cost microchips for dogs and cats are available through our services, often in support of local rabies clinics.
  • Outreach, in partnership with other rescue organizations, provides shelter, food, and medical supports to animals in the Tri-cities.
  • We can also be found at many local events giving out information and answering questions related to the care and welfare of dogs and cats.

If you are able to benefit from our services, we would love to hear from your. Or, if you would like to know more about volunteering, we would be happy to talk with you.
