The Paradise Animal Shelter Rescues Our Furry Friends

There’s a paradise in Paradise for animals too—and it’s called the Paradise Animal Shelter (PAS). PAS takes in dogs, cats, and other animals to find them better lives in a loving home.

“Our goal here is to care for the animals and to give them a better quality of life,” says Mollie St John, Interim Supervisor for Animal Control & Shelter. “From wherever they started, we want to give them that chance to have a home again.”

Many more animals may soon have that chance: Paradise Animal Shelter may be expanding!
