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 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.

We try to save as many dogs as possible but we can’t do that without you!

Please scroll down and meet some of our rescued dogs looking for their forever homes, needing fosters and who are undergoing medical treatments and need kind donations to help cover costly medical expenses!
ADOPT A RESCUE DOG!

WE ARE LOOKING FOR OUR FOREVER HOME

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.
RESCUE DOGS NEED IMMEDIATE FOSTER (OR ADOPTION!)

PLEASE FOSTER A RESCUE DOG

Opening your home and giving these sweet pups a safe, loving place to live while waiting for their forever home is one of the most generous things you can do for an abandoned, abused or surrendered dog!   Stray Paws Rescue covers everything; food, vetting, crates, puppy pads, toys, whatever you need! It costs you nothing to foster!

 

SOME OF OUR RESCUES NEED A LITTLE TLC

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

Many times the dogs we rescue dogs 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.
  1. Letty Wiggle Butt Baby
    Donated: $0.00
    Letty needs surgery to remove the hip ball joint so it stops popping out of place and scraping on the hip bone. Letty is in a lot of pain. Only surgery will make her feel better.
  2. DIESEL’S HEART WORM POSITIVE
    Donated: $0.00
    Diesel is about 1 and a half years old, and he is need of immediate heart worm treatment. Unlike most cases, Diesel will be Neutered before starting his treatments, so right now we are praying that he makes it through the surgery so we can start his treatments right away and find him his forever home.

    Piglett’s Heart Surgery
    Donated: $50.00
    Little Piglett has a heart defect that if not surgically repaired, will cause her to go into congestive heart failure and die. She is only 8 months old. We need to raise $3,500 to cover medical costs for tests and surgery. As a non-profit rescue we rely 100% on donations so please donate today!
  4. Luke The Fun Loving Tri-Pod!
    Donated: $0.00
    He is full of energy! Luke had a bad back leg when we took him in. After a couple vet appointments it was decided that we needed to have his leg amputated for his well being. He is now our fun loving TRI-POD. Nothing slows him down long. Luke is learning fast and furious how to do anything and everything on 3 legs.
  5. Princess Sia’s Road To Recovery
    Donated: $0.00
    This is Princess Sia. She is a 1 year old pit mix. She had a leg amputated due to a severe break but that hasn’t stopped her from being an amazing little girl. Please donate to help cover medical costs for Sia's amputation.
  6. PLEDGES FOR GIZMO!
    Donated: $0.00
    Gizmo was living on borrowed time in a rural pound and needed Rescue to pull him before the worst would happen! Unfortunately, Gizmo has heartworms and needs treatments. Stray Paws Rescue swooped in and grabbed this sweet boy up to give him the chance every dog deserves! Gizmo is sweet, friendly with dogs and people and housebroken.

    Help Barnes
    Donated: $100.00
    Lot of people probably remember this dog sleeping on the sidewalk across from Barnes hospital. He has heartworms and he would have die out there with that homeless man.
