Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS) is pleased to celebrate Petchitecture 12 (say: Pet-kuh-tek-chur). Petchitecture raises funds for PAWS by auctioning off pet habitats designed by local architects & designers. PAWS provides comprehensive support services to over 530 low-income clients living with HIV/AIDS and other disabling illnesses (as well as low-income seniors) to help them maintain the love and companionship of their 650 + pets. 2007 is the 20th anniversary of PAWS - started early on in the AIDS pandemic. Petchitecture is one of the only upscale fundraisers in which dogs are welcome.

PAWS is a nonprofit group that supports low-income people in San Francisco living with AIDS and other disabling illnesses. The funds raised at this year's event will help PAWS provide ongoing support for additional new clients in 2005. The organization provides comprehensive services designed to enable people with AIDS and other disabling illnesses to keep their animal companions. Services include a pet food bank, subsidized veterinary care, dog walking and much more. Now as awareness of the benefits of the human-animal bond grows, PAWS' work is more important than ever!
