Organization Profile

People & Animals Who Serve Anne Arundel County


Volunteers for all P.A.W.S. programs visit one-on-one or with their pets at homeless shelters, nursing homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities, adult day-care centers or other sites where people lack visits from family and friends. Volunteers are asked to complete an application and attend a one hour orientation session. Please call the office or email us to obtain an application and set up a date and time for orientation. After orientation is completed volunteers will share at least one hour each week at the facility of your choice. With 62 facilities to choose from throughout the county, there are many opportunities to brighten someone's day close to your home. The minimum age is 18 if visiting one-on-one or with your own pet - under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Call 410-222-0738 or e-mail pawsaac@yahoo.com for more information.
