Our Progressive Animal
Welfare System (PAWS) concept is that we do not impound these wonderful
creatures in an antiseptic, caged atmosphere, like that found in typical animal
shelters. The dogs and cats are kept
in a natural setting. They have the opportunity to roam in grassy paddocks
and forested areas with oversight and control by our staff. When an animal
arrives injured or sick they are quarantined and nurtured by caring human hands
back to health. Dogs and cats are kept separated from the main population
until an emotional, behavioral and psychological assessment can be made, then if
all is well, they are slowly integrated into a pack or cattery.
services are provided and all animals receive immediate examinations.
Birthing areas are provided until the female is
comfortable with her surroundings, then slowly introduced into the canine or
feline society. This psychology is necessary to ensure a successful
transformation in the adoption process.
Beginning training is
provided as soon as the puppy, kitten, dog or cat becomes acclimatized.
With older animals, this process is developed as soon as
the newcomer arrives at Happy PAWS Haven. Dogs that have been abused or
trained to attack are treated with gentleness and patience, until deprogramming
is achieved, which might take months or even years.
Our success with this philosophy is well documented.
Adopted animals are tracked to ensure compatibility with
the new family and to monitor their health and well being. We encourage
the new family to work with the adoptee, to have patience and give the
relationship a chance. If the relationship does not work, the family is
encouraged to return the pet to us.
