A Helping Paw is a volunteer pet adoption rescue group of individuals that strive to rescue as many homeless, abused & neglected animals as possible, our rescue pets come through various situations we save the throwaways, strays, owner turn-ins, puppy mill survivor, breeding retireies & high kill shelter dogs that are close to euthanasia.
Our main focus is animal welfare, including rescue, shelter, education, & low cost options regarding spaying and neutering, vaccanations, care, and training.
We are committed to rehabilitaiting, socializing, getting proper medical care, and finding loving forrever homes for the small dogs we have our rescued.
Adopting a friend
The first step towards adopting a pet is to submit an application by e-mailing us @ firstname.lastname@example.org & we will send you the application; for additional informations e-mail us & we will e-mail you back.. No adoption is considered with a adoption application, We are not a shelter we are strictly a foster home based pet adoption rescue group. Our rescue pets are kept in private family volunteer foster care until they are adopted to their forever homes, we don't have a facility for visits therefore, pick ups are handled by scheduled appointments in a netural location.
Our rescue runs on Adoption fees & Volunteers, adoption fees are used to pay for vet expenses & medical needs of our dogs, as many require surgery or expensive diagnostics. and many times our vet bills are higher than our adoption fees,
All adopted animals must be kept as indoor pets, this is to help ensure that the adopted animal will receive daily attention (Not just food and water tossed out to it) but brushing, grooming as needed, cuddling and most of all love. There are too many animals outside on chains, crates or in fences that do not receive the proper attention they deserve!! Our goal is to place the pet in the best possible home therefore we reserve the right to withdraw any application for any reason or at any time prior to finalizing the adoption process.
We accept out of state adoptions, adoption fee's are paid through western union and money gram prior to transport.
Thank you for your interest in adopting with us.
