PAWS is a non-profit organization with its sole purpose to help improve the overall well-being of the animals in our area.

“Our Mission is to provide no-kill solutions to reduce the number of homeless cats and dogs, through education, rehabilitation, and re-homing.”

Why is spay and neutering so important? According to the Humane Society of the U.S., a single female cat can have three litters a year with an average of five kittens per litter. In only seven years, she and her offspring could potentially produce 420,000 cats. In just six years, one female dog and her brood can produce as many as 67,000 puppies!

About Us

PAWS (Pets of Aguirre Welfare Shelter) is a Costa Rican non-profit association and a 501(c)(3) charitable organization in the United States (eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions). This wonderful organization was founded by the Quepos Ladies Group to address the issue of homeless animals in the Quepos, Manuel Antonio, and Aguirre area. PAWS reduces the number of homeless animals by sponsoring spay and neutering programs and promoting responsible pet ownership. PAWS is happy to offer assistance to qualified locals who shelter abandoned animals in their homes as well. Please see our Events and Adoptions page for recent accomplishments, thanks to our special supporters!

Thank you for your hard work & dedication

PAW's has done an amazing job in the last few years in finding homes for our homeless pets and providing medical attention when needed and so much more then we even see. If you can't be there you can still help by making a donation at La Feria on Saturday mornings. I'd like to thank the team behind PAW's for all their hard work and dedication. You're awesome!
