Housecall Program

We designed PAWS NY services to help our clients overcome the physical and financial limitations when caring for their animal companions.

Housecall Program

If you are an older adult or are living 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.

The Housecall Program 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
  • Provision of food and water

Once a client becomes part of the Housecall Program, PAWS NY is able to provide holistic, wrap-around pet care services as needed. Click here to learn about our Additional Services.
