Peace Love & Dog Paws Rescue, Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit, all volunteer, dog rescue organization.
Peace Love & Dog Paws Rescue, Inc. was incorporated on Feb 11, 2010 as a Non-Profit Alabama Corporation. All contributions/donations are tax-deductible!! We are comprised up of volunteers who have a love for dogs and a passion to help save their lives! We depend on our volunteers more than you can imagine, and are so grateful for their commitment to rescue dogs and help pave a path to their new life! We cannot answer each dog's cry for help without dedicated volunteers!
Our passion drives us each and every day. Each one of us has a story to tell about a dog or in most case, multiple dogs, that have touched our lives and remained in our hearts forever. Just as each one of us has a story, so does each dog we rescue, whether it is a story involving abuse or neglect, or losing their owner after being by their side for years... it is our mission to see every dog we save find their way to a fabulous forever home!
Peace Love & Dog Paws Rescue, Inc. believes that it is our moral responsibility to rescue, protect, and improve the lives of abused, neglected, and homeless dogs of all breeds. We pledge to be the voice for those dogs that cannot speak and be their saving grace when all hope has been lost. Our goals are to promote kindness to animals through education and by example, encourage responsible pet ownership, and support spay/neuter of dogs to help control the pet population. We believe in building strong alliances with fellow, reputable rescues, and rescuers, so that we can work together in the relentless fight to save lives… one dog at a time.
