Educating
Pet Breeders

Our mission is to protect and preserve the rights of animals and their owners and assist the owners in meeting their responsibilities to properly care for their animals.

We serve the public by providing pet owners with good information and guidance on animal welfare, socialization, treatment, breeding, health, and training of animals.

ABOUT US

higher standards, healthier pets

PAWS (Pennsylvania Animal Welfare and Safety) is a group of pet breeders who are dedicated to helping the industry by providing guidance in areas such as pet safety, marketing, public relations, and legal requirements. We believe that pets should be treated humanely and with respect. We work to provide our members and the industry with tools and education so they can meet and exceed state and federal standards.

WHAT WE DO

WHAT WE DO TO PROTECT ANIMALS

KAP Review Program

KAP (kennel assistance program) was created to assist pet breeders in meeting and exceeding legal and ethical guidelines. This provides a platform for PAWS to give hands-on training and advice to pet breeders in the state.

Pet Owner Education

We work to help our members educate their customers on caring for their new family pets.

Accredited Breeders

The review program helps our members become excellent at breeding and raising healthy pets. Our team inspects facilities using guidelines that go beyond legal requirements. Only the very best are given the accredited breeder award.

Events

We host events that raise awareness and help educate breeders, customers, and the general public.

TESTIMONIALS

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

"PAWS has given me the educational tools and energy to do my best with overall kennel management by providing more interaction with other breeders. I’m also excited about the KAP program because it will help us help each other through a peer to peer evaluation, which in turn will result in better socialized pets."
