Puppymill Awareness Working Solutions is a volunteer, non-profit group in Ottawa, Ontario dedicated to raising public awareness and educating the public at large regarding the cruelty and abuse associated with puppy mills and irresponsible breeding practices. This includes the selling of puppies from anonymous sources via the internet, newspaper advertising, and in pet stores.

Through education and awareness, we empower individuals with the knowledge required to make responsible and ethical choices when choosing a puppy/dog.

PAWS fully supports and promotes the adoption and/or fostering of homeless animals via reputable non-profit rescue groups, as well as reputable and ethical breeder sources.
