When you adopt from a no-kill shelter, you save two lives. The animal you adopt and the one that replaces them.

 

Pet Spotlight

 Meet Maxine


Maxine is a 2.5 year old Pit Bull Terrier that is looking for a family to call her own. While Maxine may smile on the outside, she’s been quite stressed and sad since her owners never came for her after she was found as a stray back in July. She’s an energetic love bug that just needs someone willing to take a chance on her and teach her some manners. Maxine would do best in an experienced dog home with older children and a fenced yard. Being a Pittie, she hardly gets a second look from potential adopters. Maxine is eagerly waiting for someone to come and take a chance loving her!

MISSION STATEMENT

Our Mission

 

The Peoples Animal Welfare Society of Tinley Park is a no-kill animal shelter dedicated to the protection of domestic animals and to the attempt to prevent animal cruelty in the surrounding communities.

We will provide shelter to abandoned, lost and relinquished pets.

We will provide humane education in animal care to the communities.

We will strive to prevent the overpopulation of our pets by offering spay/neuter programs, rather than through the use of euthanasia.

To promote these goals, we are dedicated to finding safe and permanent new homes for our domestic animals as well as helping the public choose the right companions for their families.

P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, religion (creed), physical or mental disability, or any other category protected under federal, state, or local law.

The Peoples Animal Welfare Society (P.A.W.S.) of Tinley Park is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit locally governed by a volunteer board of directors. Like most U.S. animal shelters, we rely entirely on our program revenue and fundraising to sustain our operations, provide care for animals and serve the community. Despite a similar name, we are not affiliated with the PAWS Chicago .
