PAWS makes every effort to find permanent homes for all of the animals that come to the Coronado Animal Care Facility. On occasion, animals come to us that require a special level of attention. This may be due to recovery from an illness or surgery. It can also include newborns that have been separated from their mother, who require bottle-feeding and an intensive level of care to increase their chances of survival to adulthood. When these situations arise, we find that these animals are more likely to thrive in a home with a dedicated, experienced caregiver, who can provide round the clock attention for a temporary period. This can last several weeks.
If you have experience caring for sick or newborn animals, and feel that you have the time and willingness to do so again, please let us know about your interest. Individuals like you are very unique indeed and we never know when an animal in special need will arrive at our doorstep!
Due to COVID-19, we had to close our shelter to our dog walker volunteers. These volunteers normally provide exercise and social stimulation to our dogs while they are awaiting their forever homes. Instead we are now seeking temporary foster families for these dogs.

PAWS will provide food and poop bags for each dog that is fostered.
