Our Mission

Paws and Hands United is a 501(C)3 non-profit foster based animal rescue in Southwest Missouri. Our focus is on animals that are in high kill shelters and those in immediate risk of being euthanized.

Our animals live in loving foster homes until they are adopted. Foster homes work on housebreaking, socialization, and basic obedience.

Our animals are fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered and current on flea/tick prevention and heartworm prevention.

We rely solely on donations and volunteers to make this rescue work. We do not receive any funding and are always in need of monetary donations and donations of cat, kitten, dog, and puppy food and also cat litter, toys and treats.
