Our Services

PAWS NY services are designed to help our clients overcome the physical and financial limitations they face caring for their animal companions.  If you are a senior or someone with an illness or disability, and you are struggling with the day to day care of your pet, then PAWS NY might be able to assist.  Please note our focus is on physical assistance, and we are unable to provide financial assistance.

Housecall Program: This is our core program through which PAWS NY volunteers provide on-site home visits to our clients. Visits generally include: dog walking, litter maintenance, medication administration, and provision of food and water.  Other services may be provided to existing clients who are already receiving the aforementioned services.
