The Performing Animal Welfare Society, otherwise known as “PAWS,” is a national organization that provides humane sanctuary to animals who have been victim to the performing animal trades. This include circus animals and exotic pets such as lions, tigers, elephants, bears, primates, and many more. For over 25 years, PAWS has investigated reports of abuse, documented cases of cruelty against performing animals, and maintained several sanctuaries in Northern California.
