Welcome

We do rescue different…

PAWS Humane Society of Rockford, Illinois, a volunteer organization supported by donations, was founded in 1988 as a spay/neuter assistance operation. We have grown into a full-service humane society, even reaching into our public school systems to educate future animal owners.
