PAWS of Jackson Hole serves as a resource for animal welfare services for the surrounding area. Jackson Hole is a place that adores its pets, particularly dogs and cats. In a town where everyone has a four-legged friend and the outdoor opportunities are incredible, but where living space is at a premium, pet ownership can prove challenging in numerous ways. “PAWS provides tools and programs to pet families to make sure pets lead long, happy, healthy lives,” says Program Director Jess Farr. PAWS of Jackson Hole has nine community programs that aim to help protect pets, encourage responsible ownership, prevent pet homelessness, and ensure all the non-human residents of the valley are properly cared for.
