In keeping with Paw Works mission, To Lead, Protect, Heal, Comfort and Shelter Those Who Cannot Speak for Themselves, we have begun a new Paw Works Pet Approved Business program. This program is designed to acknowledge those organizations that have made a concerted effort to accommodate pets at their businesses. Whether that means providing outdoor access or play areas, or safe, well-maintained pet relief areas, Paw Works wants to support these businesses with much-deserved public recognition and celebrate their concern about animal welfare.
Indoor or outdoor play areas must be located in a separate room or be gated or fenced. These areas must be clean and environmentally comfortable, have fresh water and clean beds or blankets, be free from potential dangers to animals and have healthy treats and toys.
Pet relief areas must be in safe locations and be well maintained with proper signage, including “keep pets on leash” signs, waste bag dispensers, fresh water and live grass.
