STRAY PAWS RESCUE

Stray Paws Rescue is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, foster-based rescue. Our organization believes it is our moral responsibility to protect and improve the lives of rescue dogs

Our mission is to save lives, keep our community informed on humane education, training and loving treatment of our companions, and finding the best fit for both the animals in our care and potential forever families!  We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue organization we do NOT have a shelter. We have a group of amazing foster parents who open up their homes to provide these babies a safe, loving, and caring environment while find them great forever homes.  Our animals stay in loving foster homes where they are socialized, loved and evaluated to determine the best type of environment for their personalities.

We are funded solely by donations and adoption fees and continually need contributions to continue our crusade to help as many homeless, abandoned animals as possible.

It costs you nothing to foster!  Please fill out a foster application we need your help!

Foster Rescue Dogs

Stray Paws Rescue would not be able to save as many dogs as we do without the valuable help of foster parents! Your loving and supportive environment plays a huge role in helping each dog recover from the anguish of their past life and once again know how to experience love and trust.

Adopt a Rescue Dog

Stray Paws Rescue saves awesome dogs of all sizes, breeds and personalities and matches them with equally awesome humans from all walks of life, creating families with every adoption.  We saved hundreds of dogs, and we couldn’t have done it without our amazing adopters!

SOME OF OUR RESCUES NEED A LITTLE TLC

Occasionally we rescue dogs that have been neglected or have lived on the streets for so long they need vet care and special treatments. Check out a few of our rescues that need a little help from our friends so they can be healthy enough to adopt.

Your donations will go a long way to help these dogs in need!
