Paws & Claws Adoptions is a small self-funded volunteer group located in South Australia, dedicated to caring for and finding furever homes for abandoned and surrendered animals. By enabling fostering and promoting adoption, Paws & Claws Adoptions aims to re-home the rescued/surrendered animals into what we call their ‘furever’ home. An interim foster home ensures animals are kept in a family type environment to help them better adjust to new homes.
All our animals are desexed prior to adoption, as well as micro chipped, vaccinated, flea and worm treatment.

It is with great sadness that the Paws & Claws Committee has lost our Vet Coordinator Michelle Dew, who has passed away earlier this week.
Our condolences go out to Shelly’s family and those who knew her.
Shelly was a visitor at P&C and started volunteering at the adoption centre on 5th Jan 2016 with great enthusiasm, energy and ideas.
She then later on the 9th of March joined the P&C Committee taking on the role of Vet Co-Coordinator as well as deciding to adopt our dear cat Henri who was at the time looking for his furever home.
Shelly was a dedicated and passionate volunteer and animal lover who always knew how to lighten the mood and also at the same time provide the organisation with down to earth advice and direction.
She had great fundraising ideas and when her mind was set on something she would go in full throttle. She embraced life and with all it imperfections.
To Shelly, we will always remember your dedication to the animals, your personality, and those cat stickers you kept posting in our Facebook messages. You will be greatly missed.
May you rest in peace Shelly with kittens all around you ❤
From the Paws & Claws team
