About Purple Power Animal Welfare Society of Kansas
Purple Power Animal Welfare Society (Purple PAWS) is a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Manhattan, Kansas, that advocates for and rescues homeless cats and dogs in Kansas and beyond. We are licensed by the Kansas Department of Agriculture as a Pound/Shelter.
Purple PAWS is dedicated to the idea of a no-kill nation. We believe our culture can end the unnecessary euthanasia of dogs and cats by:
- Spaying or neutering all companion animals
- Promoting adoption of homeless pets
- Effective regulation of breeders
We work as an all-volunteer network to advocate for these three things in our area and fundraise in support of our mission. Our board members and volunteers are not paid; all funds go to supplies, medical care, and other needs of the animals we care for.
