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.

New Year – New Goals – Saving More Lives at PAAS

Second Chances

We all get second chances and, most of the time, we learn the lesson and try to not get caught again or, best case scenario – we don’t do it again.
