Paws Program

PAWS East Bay

Berkeley Humane launched the PAWS (Pets Are Wonderful Support)/East Bay program in 2008 to provide support for the pets of low-income seniors, people with life-threatening illnesses, and people with disabilities in our community.


By providing volunteer-based services and supplies to our clients, PAWS/East Bay aims to preserve the
important human-animal bond and prevent relinquishment to shelters.


PAWS/East Bay relies heavily on volunteers and solely on donations to continue our important work.
