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.

Who would have thought that a Harvard student’s desire to connect socially would become the life-saving […]


Supply and Demand in Animal Rescue

There is a direct correlation between supply and demand. A long time ago, there were Cabbage Patch dolls. My daughter was the target age at that time and, yes, her world included one of the dolls. Were they overpriced – – yes; did they remain a collector’s item – no; did supply eventually exceed demand […]


Fitting The Pieces Together Gets You A Picture

When you work a puzzle, all the pieces, when they’re put together, form a picture. In rescue, you can eventually find all the pieces for your puzzle, but all too often they are scattered across a wide area – they are not within a logical distance. Since January, 221 dogs and 41 cats have found […]
