PAPAS Mission Statement

Mission Statement & Constitution

Mission Statement

The aim of the Pinoso Association for the Protection of Animals is to ensure the well-being and security of all animals lost or abandoned in and around the Pinoso area. We intend to work hand in hand with all sections of the community, the Police and the Local Authority to achieve this aim.

The Association will ensure that all animals coming into it's care will receive individual veterinary attention and appropriate care. We will make every attempt to find the animals temporary shelter until a permanent home can be found.

We intend to build and run an Animal Sanctuary, where abandoned, lost or mis-treated animals may live in a comfortable and loving environment until they are found a permanent home. Until we achieve this aim we intend to work with other agencies who have been  identified as having the same mission as ourselves.
