Our Mission

People Helping Paws is in need of foster homes! If you would like to foster one of our adoptable pets please email us at We do ask that a home visit be set up prior to foster placement to ensure the safety of the animal and the foster home. Thank you!

People Helping Paws is a Dog/Cat Rescue and Pet Food Pantry located in Jefferson City, MO. We are committed to pulling bully breeds from death row and to help keep beloved pets with their families by providing food and supplies where needed.

All members of this organization carry full time jobs outside of People Helping Paws but we still remain dedicated to our animal companions.
