MAWS was founded in 2005 due to a need for animal welfare education in our community, over the years we have worked tirelessly by CONNECTING, EDUCATING, ASSISTING and ADVOCATING for animals within our community. MAWS has worked with non-profit shelters and rescues, for-profit companies, schools, prison programs, as well as other organizations and individuals to help the humans and animals. Our volunteers often work behind the scenes without recognition for larger projects that benefits animals and their humans. Our goal with this organization is to share information, tools and resources so that people know they are not alone and there is help out there so that we can bring an reduce unnecessary suffering of animals and humans in this world.
2002 MIDLANDS HUMANE SOCIETY started from Independent Research Project at Creighton University, focusing studies on animals in society.
2005 MIDWEST ANIMAL WELFARE SOCIETY was founded focusing on animal welfare, humane education and sheltering in our community.

2021 M.A.W.S. comes full circle, refocused and rebranded as GOD'S ARMY FOR ANIMALS working to CONNECT, EDUCATE, ASSIST & ADVOCATE FOR ANIMALS.
Our mission for M.A.W.S. is to focus on HUMANE EDUCATION.
To raise the status of animals in society by CONNECTING, ASSISTING, and EDUCATING the community on animal welfare resources and services. As well as ADVOCATING for animals and being their voice as work to reduce their unnecessary suffering, by working together and helping one another.
Our vision is that one day pets will not be given up on, dumped at shelters and rescues, and met with a tragic end. Everyday pets are relinquished, re-homed or euthanize in our country. It sounds great that every year 1.5 million animals are adopted, but unfortunately half of these animals are returned and the number one reason is behavior issues.
We want to improve the systems currently in place to help people and animals. Whether it is mentally, physically, medically or financially. Our hope for our future is to reduce suffering happening in our country, by empowering people with tools and knowledge they will have for the rest of their lives.
Our vision is to continue to put together a strong network of people that have dedicated their lives to improving the lives of animals in our society working together. M.A.W.S. has been and will continue to be involved in creating and supporting programs in partnership with the following organizations:
We believe that we can help ourselves in the process of helping our animals. That's why we are building God's Army to work together to help more animals!
M.A.W.S. CORE VALUES FOR ALL CREATURES:
