MIDWEST ANIMAL WELFARE SOCIETY has always been focused on humane education and how to raise the status of animals in our society for over 20 years. We believe that by caring about all of God's creatures we can learn to care about each other and the world around us. We are all in relationships with each other, so we believe our relationship with animals should reflect love and respect just as God loves and treats us.
Even with the thousands of HUMANE SOCIETIES and RESCUES around the country, we continue to have a MASSIVE PET EUTHANASIA PROBLEM. So maybe it is time we as a society look at the root causes of this problem. The number one reason that pets are relinquished to shelters and rescues is due to BEHAVIOR ISSUES. It is because of this reason, we are taking a different approach about how to help animals.
M.A.W.S. IS focused on creating and sustaining RELATIONSHIP BASED SUPPORT SYSTEMS AND NETWORKS to help more humans and animals. We want to empower as many pet owners as possible with tools and information to help their own animals. Once they have the information they can help other humans and animals. God's work has always been done by His people, and we believe in treating everyone and their animals as we would want to be treated.
We operate under the philosophy animals have similar feelings as humans, however they are a different species so they communicate differently. Human and animal psychology is not that much different, and our focus is to help pet owners understand the problems they are having with their animals, without jeopardizing their RELATIONSHIPS, but instead actually improving the bond between them. Learning what animals are trying to tell us is key in solving or preventing problems and conflicts.
We believe good animal care and training should always involve the "LEAST INVASIVE MINIMALLY AVERSIVE" (LIMA) techniques designed to affect the animals "state of mind," so that people are not chasing problems but building a relationship with the animals so that most behavior problems fade away. Our hope is by sharing information and resources we can focus on helping animals and their owners life a happier life, and most importantly keeping these pets in their homes.
