PAWSS will provide information to help obtain access to sterilization of all pets in our community through spay, neutering or injection (if that method becomes a viable option) by educating the pubic and helping provide information.

At a minimum of once a month, PAWSS will have a Pet Food Pantry Providing pet food and education on proper feeding of pets who might otherwise be surrendered to the local shelters. We also provide pet food to shut ins through Meals on Wheels of Grant County.
We are hopeful that our organization will continue to grow and receive donations so that we can provide more assistance to pets and their owners which will hopefully provide our local shelters with relief from pet owners that feel they have no choice but to surrender their pet. In the future, we hope to be able to assist with immunizations and assistance with flea preventative and basic immunizations. We also hope to Improve the environment of outdoor pets through education and a fence fix program modeled after FIDO Indy.
PAWSS hopes to develop a Foster care program (list of foster care volunteers) and provide a list of business that would offer discounted services and donations to the local shelters and animal rescues so that we can be a central call center for emergencies for our pet care people. We will work with local shelters and rescues in finding foster care and alternative housing for animals in the shelter.

PAWSS Pet Food Pantry offers assistance to those in need so their pets do not go hungry. We also offer help signing up for the Spay Neuter Indiana Initiative to receive a SNAP Certificate to get their pet spayed or neutered for only $25.00.
Our shelters are full. Pet owners struggle financially to care for their beloved animals so they are surrendered. ‘I don’t have the money this month to get them fixed’ and then ten more mixed puppies are born. This is the cycle PAWSS is hoping to help our County change. Through a monthly Pet Food Pantry and help with Spay/Neuter initiatives, we believe we can have a great impact on pets and their owners in our community, thus taking the strain off of the shelters.
We want to help owners keep their fur babies even when times get tough. The PAWSS pet food pantry is open at S. least once a month at “The Office”, 301 S. Adams Street in downtown Marion. You will need to bring a picture I.D., Utility bill showing proof of address, and proof of income, or one of the following: WIC card, Food Stamp Card, Free lunch program acceptance letter, Social Security Disability award letter, Medicaid Card.
