In 2009 Paws Malta was formed by merging two charity shops – The Charity Shop in San Gwann, and Charity of Choice shop in St. Paul’s Bay (now replaced with our Mosta shop).
We are people who have been involved in stray animal welfare in Malta for a number of years and we felt that two separate entities coming together under one umbrella would be far more beneficial than two standing alone, and so PAWS Malta was born!
Our primary aim is to help control the stray animal population by providing help to those people who dedicate their lives to taking care of stray animals. We help by issuing vouchers which entitle our members to have stray animals neutered completely free of charge. This system allows for the immediate neutering of strays with no long appointment delays, (which invariably results in further pregnancies and large numbers of additional strays being introduced onto the streets). We also provide pet food free of charge to a large number of feeders, and we have a close and happy working relationship with other animal charity organizations.
Our services are provided absolutely FREE OF CHARGE to our members and our funds are raised by operating the two shops and fund-raising events. Our hard working team is completely voluntary and therefore ALL funds raised are directed straight to animal welfare.
