SXM PAWS has been actively helping the island animals since 2005.  We are an independent group of dedicated volunteers helping to make a difference in the animals lives through rescuing, spaying/neutering, adopting and educating.

We at SXM PAWS are dedicated to giving the island animals a better chance at life.  Since founded in 2005, SXM PAWS has rescued, rehabilitated, and found loving homes for over four hundred animals on the island as well as many finding their forever home in the USA, Canada, France and Holland.  In addition we have spayed and neutered countless hundreds of animals while also providing assistance to local families in need of spaying or neutering their animals.

SXM PAWS is an all-volunteer organization.  We are not a kennel, nor do we have a physical location such as a shelter facility.  We are a network of foster homes, where our animals are kept and nurtured until they find their forever families.

So often, the animals we rescue have suffered abandonment, neglect and abuse, and it is why we are dedicated to making a positive difference in their lives from the moment they enter our foster program.  Our goal is to help them in every way we can…. emotionally, socially, physically…. so that the transition into their forever homes will be as smooth as possible.

One by one we can make a difference!  Thank you for helping us to help the island animals!!!
