PAWS (People & Animal Welfare Society Inc) is a non-profit organisation promoting community welfare through Ahimsa (non-violence) and is largely staffed by volunteers.

PAWS People & Animal Welfare Society was created in the year 2000 and incorporated in the year 2004. PAWS is essentially a community group attracting  members, supporters and volunteers who feel inspired by the goals and purposes of the society. PAWS represents the culture of non-violence and PAWS members try to exemplify this principle in their day to day lives. Anyone who comes in contact with PAWS has the opportunity to become more aware of the value animal welfare holds for human society and how a meat free diet is the best choice to alleviate animal suffering, help to protect the environment, and to bring goodness to people.



 People & Animal Welfare Society Inc PAWS would like to acknowledge and thank all our volunteers and supporters who have worked tirelessly alongside our team again throughout 2014.  This year has been a big year for PAWS and we certainly couldn’t have achieved what we have achieved with out the dedication of all our loyal supporters.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!
