Chad Atkins and Christina Morgan founded Paw Works, a non-profit with two storefronts in Ventura and Thousand Oaks, in 2014. Their initial intent was to make Ventura County "No Kill," a goal they achieved less than one month after starting the organization. Paw Works is now the largest animal non-profit 501(c) (3) in Ventura County, already placing over 5,000 abandoned shelter dogs and cats in permanent homes. Now in its fifth year, Paw Works recently acquired its first boarding facility and sanctuary, continuing the organization’s growth from its foster-based roots. Actress, Kaley Cuoco, (Big Bang Theory), is both a Celebrity Ambassador and previous Board Member.
