Welcome To PAAS!

The Peaceful Animal Adoption Shelter (PAAS) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Vinita Oklahoma created to assist in finding permanent, loving homes for rescued animals.

PAAS Vinita is not just another animal shelter...we offer a variety of services related to the intake, care, and processing of abandoned, stray, and unwanted pets in our communities.

We also provide a place for education to proper pet care, small animal resources, provide events, host events, and offer a place where people who want to make a difference can volunteer.

For questions about adopting a pet, caring for your pet, becoming a foster parent, our adoption events, or returning any pet that has been previously adopted from PAAS Vinita, please contact us at (918) 256-7227.
