The Valley Animal Center is honored to have the support of wonderful individuals who donate year after year to ensure our life-saving efforts. To recognize these loyal donors, we have our very own Annual Giving Society called PAWS (Providing Animals with Shelter). Members of PAWS are donors whose yearly generosity and dedication have allowed us to make a greater impact for companion animals in our community.
