About Carolina P.A.W.S.

Welcome to Our Site!

We are an all-volunteer based 501c3 nonprofit animal rescue centrally located in the greater Charlotte NC area. Our dedicated volunteers are devoted to helping abandoned and abused cats and dogs find loving homes. Carolina P.A.W.S. volunteers can be found "in the trenches," rescuing animals at high risk - those starving on the streets, languishing in shelters, and suffering in abusive situations. Each animal has a different past but our promise to them all is the sameā€¦a second chance. We provide them with medical attention, rehabilitate them physically and emotionally, and care for them in foster homes until they can be placed in loving permanent homes.

Along the way, we prepare them to become wonderful companions by taking the time to socialize them and patiently teaching them to trust. We also spay/neuter each one, provide all inoculations, and ensure that they are in perfect health before being made available for adoption.
