Our Pets Are Looking for Someone like You
Because of tough economic times, fewer people can afford to keep their pets. So the number of homeless animals in and around Springfield is increasing dramatically.
Adopt-A-Paw is a nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter serving the Springfield area. Our mission is to give these homeless animals a second chance through our rescue, shelter, and adoption programs.
We were founded in 1990 with a few simple goals: save and place cats and dogs in new homes, and educate the public about spaying and neutering their pets.
We’re now one of the largest no-kill shelters in the state! Each year, Adopt-A-Paw helps more than 1,300 cats and dogs find permanent homes.
Adopt-A-Paw strives to provide a safe and healthy transition home to the animals we rescue and place. We hope our mission inspires others in the Springfield community to learn more about animal needs and how to care for and live with a healthy and happy pet.
