Our Featured Dog...Murphy
Murphy was found lying in the middle of the median on the highway. He had been hit by a vehicle and left to die. The guy who stopped to check on him, said when he got close to him, he started to wag his tail. That was Murphy's way of telling him, "THANK YOU," for stopping to help me. He was taken to the vet and evaluated. His pelvis had been broken and he could not walk. Murphy is continuing to improve, but it is going to take some time. What hasn't been damaged is his heart. If you would like to help contribute to his medical expenses please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 601-529-1535. Or if you would like to use a credit card, you can donate directly to our vet, Animal Medical Clinic, 601-636-9410 (just give them Murphy's name when making the donation) or you can send a check to Paws Rescue, PO Box 13, Redwood, MS 39156.

Thanks and Appreciation
Paws Rescue is providing high-quality, free spay/neuter services for homeless cats and kittens living in Vicksburg-Warren County, Mississippi. To humanely manage feral cat populations in the community, Paws Rescue will provide free spay/neuter surgeries and rabies vaccinations for 300 feral and stray felines over the next year, thanks to a grant from PetSmart Charities (www.petsmartcharities.org/). We're on our way to making Vicksburg-Warren County a place where no more unwanted kittens are born and ultimately euthanized. Call us today at 601-529-1535 or email Leigh@pawsrescupets.org to make an appointment to get the stray and feral cats you are feeding and caring for fixed.
Thanks to a generous grant from the ASPCA, Paws Rescue is continuing its Community Canine Neuter program by providing reduced spay/neuter services for dogs owned by Vicksburg-Warren County residents who are senior citizens, disabled or on a fixed income. If you have a dog that needs to be fixed, call us today at 601-529-1535 or email Leigh@pawsrescupets.org to make an appointment to get your dog spayed or neutered. Do the right thing and have your pet fixed -- it saves lives!
Paws Rescue depends upon its volunteers, foster homes, feral colony caretakers and financial donors to continue its mission of rescuing, providing medical care and finding forever homes for our communities homeless animals. Thanks to all of the wonderful individuals and business who contribute each month with financial or food donations!
Homes Urgently Needed for Barn Cats!
A feral cat will keep your barn rodent free for the price of daily cat food, and you'll be helping to save a life! We have several beautiful, healthy, neutered and vaccinated feral cats that are looking for outdoor homes with a barn, shed, or other shelter. If you would like to adopt a barn cat (or several) e-mail us at email@example.com or call 601-529-1535.
Paws Rescue asks you to help stop Mississippi's pet overpopulation by purchasing an "I Care for Animals" license plate. A portion of the fee from this this specialty plate will be sent to rescue's and shelters throughout Mississippi to help spay, neuter and care for homeless animals.
Opt to Adopt! -- Please adopt a rescued dog or cat from a rescue, shelter or pound instead of purchasing an animal from a pet store. You save the life of a homeless animal while at the same time sending a strong message to the the horrible puppy mills that you do NOT support their actions!
Keep your pets safe! Be sure all pets are wearing current identification tags and consider microchipping your pet for easy and permanent identification.
According to a recent study conducted by the Humane Society of the United States, in Mississippi more than 109,000 homeless animals enter shelters each year and of these 73,000 are killed because of a lack of adoptive homes. Please keep your pets from contributing to the problem! If you need to spay or neuter your pet cat or dog, contact Mississippi SPay and Neuter (MS SPAN) toll free to learn about its voucher program and its Big Fix Clinic located at 2104 Old Brandon Road, Pearl, MS. MS SPAN offers low-cost spay or neuter service for both dogs and cats. Please phone 1-866-901-7729 to make an appointment to have your pet fixed. Clinic hours are 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Have a heart and do your part to stop animal over population in Mississippi! Have your dogs and cats spayed or neutered today!
Paws Rescue is a network of volunteer foster homes, not a shelter. The more volunteer foster homes, the more animals we can save. If you live in the Vicksburg area and are interested in fostering a dog or cat, please contact Paws Rescue at 601-529-1535 for more information.
Paws Rescue is committed to assisting any dog or cat in need and does not concentrate on rescuing any one particular animal breed. There are always many wonderful mixed-breed dogs of all sizes and personalities and both long-hair and short-hair adorable cats of all colors available for adoption through Paws Rescue. All pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and treated for any illnesses or injuries before placed into their forever homes.
If you live in Vicksburg or Warren County and are feeding stray or feral cats that need to be spayed or neutered, contact Paws Rescue for assistance at Leigh@pawsrescuepets.org Additionally, if you can support Paws Rescue's efforts to humanely care for feral and stray cats by providing a bag of cat food each month, please contact Leigh at 601-529-1535.
