Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
PAWS\' mission is to prevent cruelty to all animals by promoting humane standards through education and example, to provide care and shelter for homeless animals, aid in the reduction of domestic animal overpopulation, and aid in the enforcement of laws, including the investigation of animal cruelty and abuse. Our main goal is to provide the best possible care for the animals while in our custody and finding them new permanent, loving homes.rnrnWe designate our rescue ranch as a temporary shelter for horses affected by disaters (wild fires, floods). We also work with Travis Co. Sheriff and we take horses that are picked up as strays or confiscated due to neglect and abuse. We also rescue horses from kill pens before they are sent to slaughterhouse.
