"Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever."

- Karen Davison

Pets Are Worth Saving,Inc. (PAWS) is a not-for-profit, no-kill animal welfare organization, rescuing and making available for adoption, homeless and otherwise unwanted animals. PAWS was founded primarily as a means to prevent the destruction of valuable, adoptable animals due to the rapid increases in population--specifically dogs and cats--within the Union County (Illinois) area, solely funded by donations and fund raisers within the greater community. PAWS' Place Adoption Center is located at 139 East Vienna Street in downtown Anna, IL.


Feel free to reach out to us, we look forward to matching you with one of our adorable rescues!
