...adopting a dog! Millions of dogs are found as strays or surrendered to shelter every year and statistics show that as many as 65% of these dogs are killed. Why? There simply aren't enough homes for them all.
....fostering a dog! Many dogs cannot make it from a shelter to a rescue and then on to a forever home with out a stop in between. Fosters are greatly needed but always in too-short of supply.
...sponsoring a dog! Some dogs who are with rescue groups are in boarding facilities because there isn't a foster home for them yet. Sponsoring would be a one-time or monthly donation to help with the costs of their boarding.
We organize monthly Spay-Neuter Days at an area vet office. These Sp-Euter Days allow individuals to get their dogs fixed for a reduced rate. Spaces are limited and by reservation only. Contact us for details.
Do you need financial assistance to get your dog fixed? If you live in or near Blair County, PA, we may be able to help. Please contact us for an assistance application and details.
Who We Are
Happy Paws Happy Homes is NOT a rescue or a shelter. Rather, our organization serves as a liaison between rescues, shelters, the public, and DOGS. We believe that every dog deserves a home where their needs are met and hope that one day soon, EVERY dog will have his day. We are a registered business in the state of Pennsylvania and received our 501(c)3 status in September 2005.

* We provide no-cost consulting services to adopters and potential adopters about animal care and behavior.

Adopting a friend
Please don't buy while shelter pets die! So many wonderful animals are available for adoption from shelters and rescues. Many of these animals come fully-vaccinated, altered, or the alter surgery is included in the adoption fee. If you're looking to add a furry addition to your family, please visit your local shelter or do a search on PETFINDER to meet your match!
