The Pet Safe keeping program is a partnership between those agencies that shelter and provide assistance to people experiencing intimate partner violence in the Greater Moncton Area. The program assists those who may be delaying their decision to leave an abuser because they can not take their pets with them.
The purpose of the program is to provide temporary care for pets of owners who are victims of intimate partner violence and require immediate safe space for their pets to facilitate their leaving.
The information of those utilizing this program is strictly confidential. Pets are able to remain in the program for a maximum of 15 days after the owner departs a violence crisis center they have been receiving assistance from.

Barn Buddies is a program intended for cats who are not happy living in homes as companion pets but would make wonderful barn cats, or “working” cats. These are cats not suitable for life inside of a house nor are they happy living indoors. We are looking for cat-loving property owners to adopt them.
Adopters are assuming responsibility for the cat and should monitor their wellbeing. They must have a heated barn or other suitable structure (such as a shop or warehouse) for the cats to call home as well as provide fresh food and water daily.
Cats eligible for the program are chosen by PAW. Our goal is to find these cats safe places to continue to live. All cats in the program are fixed prior to placement.

Foster homes assist with socialization, behavioural issues, and preparing pets for adoption.
Some of the animals that come to PAW need a little extra love before they are ready to be listed for adoption.
Our wonderful PAW Foster Families help take care of some animals who may need special attention to get them healthy enough for adoption.
PAW Pals Academy is a community outreach initiative encompassing several in-school education programs all of which aim to give youth in the Greater Moncton Area an opportunity to engage meaningfully with animals and learn how to respect, advocate and show kindness for all living beings and the environment.
Our first PAW Pals Academy program has officially launched! Critter Classrooms allows teachers to foster a small pet at school. This program provides a small pet with a break from the shelter while they await adoption and allows teachers an opportunity to incorporate real world lessons about responsibility, kindness and respect into their classrooms.
