About Our Rescue Group:

PAW PALS, Inc. is a non-for-profit organization founded in 2001 as a community outreach program. PAW PALS, Inc. focuses on assistance and education for low-income pet owners in the Quincy, Ill area, by providing all free services including: spay/neuter, vaccinations, shelter, food, urgent vet care and on site education. PAW PALS is modeled after "Training Wheels", founded by Sue Sternberg. There are no payed employees, only volunteers. Even though our goal is to assist the pet owner in ways to help keep their pet in the home, it is not always possible. Therefore, we do offer to find new homes for these pets, either through breed rescues, the local humane society, or our veternary provider.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
