Helping PAWS Pet Rescue, Inc. was founded for the sole purpose of helping to stop the suffering of companion animals caused by homelessness, overpopulation, and mistreatment. Our goal is that no adoptable companion animal ever be euthanized for lack of medical care and a good home. This goal is not limited to dogs and cats, but extends equally to horses, rabbits, birds and other domestic species. Our mission is to proactively aid homeless and unwanted animals by offering, not just a “humane” alternative, but to provide in each case the best possible process that would result in each individual pet finding its forever-home. Our mission is unique in that we include not only young, healthy homeless pets, but also owner surrenders and individuals with medical needs that would cause them to be rejected by or euthanized by other organizations.
Helping PAWS Pet Rescue, Inc. believes that the means to accomplishing our mission should be two-fold: Serving animals and educating people.
Serving Animals: Spaying and neutering all homeless pets in our care prior to adoption as well as offering low-cost spays and neuters to low income families is primary. Veterinary care is available to homeless pets, with procedures, medications, and special diets provided as needed. We arrange foster homes for pets awaiting placement and adoption services by application.
Educating People: Equally important is education of the public in every way possible to keep their chosen pet happy, well, and in their home. Our presence at Country Care Pet Hospital promotes daily our philosophy of preventive maintenance, optimal nutrition, medical care and the importance of the human-animal bond. Helping PAWS participates in a great variety of local pet-related events and presentation opportunities, including visits to local schools, retail outlets and community groups.
