Precious Paws is an all volunteer incorporated 501(c)3 non-profit dog and cat rescue organization based in Encino, California. It was established in October 2003 by Georgyne La Lone, and aims to educate the public on the need to spay and neuter pets to prevent overpopulation and euthanasia. It also assists in assisting low-income households with veterinarian expenses, continue trap/neuter/release efforts for feral cat colonies, and house pets in the homes of volunteers until a permanent home can be found. In the future the organization aims to establish its own pet sanctuary.

The group has received help from several celebrities, most notably Susan Olsen who starred in the 1970s television show The Brady Bunch and also serves on the organization's board of directors,[1] but also her former costars Christopher Knight and Robbie Rist, plus comedian Elayne Boosler, Paul Reuben, Richie Sambora, lead guitarist of Bon Jovi, Erin Murphy, Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry, son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry,[2] Eric Roberts, Drew Tyler Bell, Joan Rivers, Mark Hamill of Star Wars, Anthony Michael Hall, and others.[3]

The organization receives no government or public funding, and its activities are all paid for by private donations, auctions of celebrity lunches, items, and concert tickets.

As of the end of 2007, the organization had a total annual income of just over $39,000.[4]
