Riverton Animal Adoption Center

Paws for Life Animal League started in 1993 under the name Dare to Care Animal League. We have since changed our name, but never our mission to see a world of no more homeless pets. Paws took over management of the Riverton Animal Adoption Center from the City of Riverton Police Department in July, 2004 and have since saved the lives of countless animals due to the generosity of our community and hard-working volunteers, employee’s, and board members. Paws is a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization and relies solely on donations from the community to operate. Remember, no effort is too small to help the animals in our area.
