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 formed 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.

PAWS will re open again on the 16th of January 2017.
