Small Paws Rescue Information
The mission of Small Paws® Rescue Inc., a
charitable, Federal not-for-profit organization,
is to rescue and supply non-aggressive Bichons,
nationwide, with love, shelter, food, human
companionship, and medical care, until permanent
placement is secured into a pre-screened
loving home, as our resources allow.
We take responsibility for each Bichon rescued
and placed through Small Paws® Rescue Inc.
should they ever need to return to Small
Paws during their lifetime.
Educating and informing the public about
the commercial dog industry in America and
about responsible pet ownership is also very
important to us, as well as reviving the
spirit of volunteerism across our country.
Small Paws® Rescue Inc. is composed of approximately
6000 people in 26 countries, and over eight
hundred volunteers across America. Our volunteers
are willing to foster, transport, or otherwise
assist in this massive rescue effort. We
are supported entirely by donations and fund
Our vision: We hope to see a day when there
is no longer a market for puppies sold in
the pet shops of America. Then and only then,
will the suffering endured by thousands of
companion animals in the puppy mills of America,
Our Future Goal: Our goal is to rescue as
many Bichons in emergency situations as our
organization is safely able to manage.
Our Accomplishments: Small Paws® Rescue has
rescued, vetted and re-homed over 7500 Bichons
since it's inception in September of 1998.
Small Paws® Rescue is the largest organized
Bichon Frise rescue organization in the country
Small Paws® Rescue has been featured on the
cable network Animal Planet, twice in the
past 11 years.
Both episodes told stories of previous medical services provided for even the most critically ill Bichons.

Small Paws® Rescue has saved the lives of
74 Bichons, with heart murmurs. They each

heart murmurs and today are living normal

We are also invited to speak at national functions, to further educate the public about the need for breed rescue organizations to exist, the importance of spaying and neutering your pet, and about the suffering that continues daily in the puppy mills of America.
