Helping PAWS Pet Rescue is a nonprofit organization that has been active in the Washburn, Bayfield, and Ashland area of northwestern Wisconsin since February 2006. The goal of our organization is no adoptable companion animal should ever be euthanized for lack of medical care and a good home. This is not limited to dogs and cats, but extends equally to horses, rabbits, birds, and other domestic animals.
We are unique in that we care for not only young, healthy homeless pets but also surrendered animals and animals that have medical needs that would cause them to be rejected or euthanized at other rescues. We are also often on the receiving end of puppy mills and hoarding situations. For these animals, HPPR is often viewed as their “last chance to survive.” As a professional non-profit organization, we collaborate with volunteers, animal welfare partners, and other shelters to rescue animals in need. We are a no kill animal rescue, and as such, adoptable animals remain with us until they find their forever home.
We strive to provide unparalleled care to our adoptable animals. We have daily continued veterinarian support. The animals in our care are provided with natural, high-quality nutrition, regular exams, and all appropriate vaccines and preventive care.
