Teams and Allies

It takes a village.

Never were those words truer than at PAW Alliance! As an all-volunteer animal-welfare nonprofit with two very different programs, we need all the fellow villagers who might out there. We know them when we see them. Come join us, as volunteers, adopters, and fosters.

We remember and honor Loretta Elliott, our co-founder, vice president, and adoption counselor since we began PAW Alliance in 2017.  She joined NLOL when another animal welfare agency managed it in 2011, after adopting her beloved NLOL dog, Zoe. She and the devotion she gave keep her in our hearts, always. 
We also honor Danny Rawley, a former prison trainer who joined our board and helped us with his unique understanding of prison dog-training. He remains a beloved and revered advisor.

PAW Alliance works with animal shelters and forms alliances with area nonprofits to help people and pets most in need. We love working with all our partners. In our current, 13th, session, BIG thanks to Friends of Stokes Shelter (FOSS Animal Adoption Center) and Davie Coounty Animal Services for the pups.


Our thanks to all, especially:
