** Saving Paws is a volunteer run organization that works to support the animals of Meriden Animal Control (a City municipality/pound). The City is legally responsible for the animals and provides housing for all animals; we provide anything "extra" the animals need to be more adoptable or healthy. Saving Paws also acts as a liaison between adopters and the Animal Control Officers by answering emails and helping to schedule adoption appointments. The City is limited in what they can provide the animals, as this is funded by taxpayers. Officers are often overwhelmed with daily calls and emergencies, so the role of Saving Paws is vital. Saving paws also funds the spay and neuter initiative at Meriden Animal Control which ensures all animals are sterilized before going home.
