Rescue of the Month

Excited to Present our Rescue of the Month: PAWS CARE


 PAWS CARE, Inc. located in Montgomery County is a not-for-profit volunteer animal welfare group. 

Our goal is to rescue, re-home and provide better lives for companion animals in Montgomery County and surrounding areas. We are an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff.

We are more of a "boutique rescue" as we do not have a shelter and only use private foster homes. 

Our Basic Objectives:

  • Prevent cruelty to animals
  • Provide forever homes for animals through adoption
  • Promote compassion for pets through education
  • Provide shelter and care for homeless animals
  • Reduce overpopulation by supporting spay and neuter programs
  • Assist individuals with emergency food during troubled times
  • Relieve the suffering of all animals 

Paws Care of Montgomery County offers various community programs. We not only help the lives of the pets in need, but the lives of the people who care for them.

Spay/Neuter Voucher Program: Individuals who live in Montgomery County can apply for a spay/neuter voucher for their pets. We use a budgeted amount of monies per year to support this program. There are no financial restrictions. You must download the form by clicking here, then print and mail. The vouchers are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. We use county veterinarians and the Animal Protective League's spay/neuter clinic in Springfield, IL.

Paws Care "Andy & Debbie Schum" Scholarship Program: This Award is available to individuals in Montgomery County, IL who plan on attending a college or technical school in the United States. This year, two $500 scholarships will be awarded. Certain qualifications must be completed prior to submitting your application. Download the qualifications and volunteer form by clicking here.
