Adoptable Animals

Prairie Paws Animal Shelter Inc. has served Ottawa and the surrounding counties for over 70 years. In that time, we have cared for countless lost, abandoned, stray or surrendered animals and promoted adoptions as we have continued to grow.


In 2010 we moved into a brand new facility located at: 3173 HWY K68 Ottawa, KS 66067 and have restructured some of our policies to better serve the community and the animals we care for. Prairie Paws Animal Shelter Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit meaning your donations are tax-deductible. We are a no kill animal shelter.
