Southern Paws Inc. is a Non-Profit organization that works very closely with southern rescue groups to provide needed homes for dogs in the Southern United States. Through our program we also work to help them gain needed resources and funding that is strongly lacking in the south. It is our goal to not only provide loving homes for these dogs but to also help better shelters and shelter life in the South.
All of our dogs are located in the Southern USA at our sister shelters. They are adopted on a pre-adoption basis and then transported to NJ after the adoption process is complete. Upon arrival they go into a 24 hour monitoring period, where we make sure that they have made it through transport safe, happy, and healthy. After that 24 hour period, these dogs go into their forever home. It is a long journey but it is well worth the trip. There is an adoption fee on our dogs. This fee is a reimbursement for all of the services that we have provided to the dog being adopted. We put all of our dogs through a very stringent vetting process, deworm them multiple times, run fecal exams, spay & neuter, vaccinate and have them checked multiple times by the vet. Before they are transported, each of our dogs must receive a health certificate clearing them for travel.
