About Us

Bowie Citizens for Local Animal Welfare (Bowie CLAW) is a 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization located in Bowie, Maryland. The mission of Bowie CLAW is to advocate for the interests of animals in the greater Bowie area. We are advocating for the establishment of a local holding facility to assist with placement of Bowie's homeless animals and the return of lost animals. Bowie CLAW also runs a Pet Assistance & Support (PAS) program, which provides pet food, toys, and cat litter to area residents who are struggling to afford their pets' needs in this challenging economy. In addition, Bowie CLAW assists Prince George's Animal Management and other local rescue organizations in the placement of adoptable pets.
