What to Expect

Paws for Life...where our favorite breed is rescue.


Paws for Life is a 501(c)3 non profit that is run by a board entirely made up of volunteers. Paws took over the city of Riverton's animal shelter in 2004 and has been caring for the stray, homeless and abandoned animals of Fremont County ever since. All our animals are vaccinated, de wormed, micro chipped and spayed or neutered before adoption. By shelter standard we are a No Kill facility, we do not euthanize healthy, adoptable animals. Our goal is to place homeless animals into loving forever homes. We strive to educate the community and youth about the pet overpopulation problem, proper pet care, commitment, responsibility and compassion towards animals.

About Our Shelter





Adopter & Volunteer

I would rather go shopping at the shelter than at the mall. Thank you to all the wonderful staff that take care of all the sweet little fur kids.
