Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
I started this rescue with my daughter Rachel about seven years ago (2004) offically. We love all animals, (especially kitties) and really saw a need for it in this area.
We really do acquire "rescued" cats and kittens. I do get a lot of my animals from the animal shelters in the area. I do this rescue because I really care about animals and believe that all animals should be destined to great loving homes that will take good care of them- they deserve it!
We do adoption events most weekends. Call in advance to see where we might be.
Gaiser Pets. 714 Plumas Street. Yuba City, CA 95991
Some of the best dogs and cats fall on hard times. Rescues give these animals a chance to find loving homes. Consider making a rescue animal your best friend.
Your adoption fee not only saves a life but also included is the spay/or neuter, 3 puppy/kitten shots, rabies vaccine, deflea, deworm and a free local vet check.
We want to thank everyone who has adopted or volunteered with our rescue. Without help and excellent homes we could not save as many lives as we have. This is a hard to stomach volunteer work that runs you down sometimes but it is the changes and difference that we make and see that keeps us going. Thank you for adopting and to those of us volunteering... THANKS! .
We are a Non-Profit Rescue
We are a small rescue that is foster based. Our rescues are placed in different foster homes until we do interviews and meet by appointment only. We solely survive and run our rescue on our adoption fees alone. . This rescue is also on volunteer basis alone. We all work full time at regular jobs. We are NOT PAID volunteers. The adoption fees cover expenses such as veternarian care- when needed, vaccinations, medications, testing, worming, flea meds, spaying/neutering, food, dishes, bedding and many other supplies that you need on a daily basis. cost per animal is what it basically cost us and sometimes it cost more than the adoption fees. Vet care alone can run from the hundreds and up. We sometimes (always) never recover from these expenses. Some rescues are with us for a year or more. Each and every day it is a struggle to keep up with costs for caring for the rescues. But one way or another it always happens. We have to... for them.
When adopting you are not only helping the animal you adopt, you are saving others too . It is the whole concept you are supporting. So you are not necessarily just saving one life you are contributing to saving MANY! PPR is non profit. This allows us to bring another rescue into the shelter/foster home. Donations or if any is left from the adoption fees goes toward helping others. So you are doing a noble and heroic deed... you are not just adopting your new little one and saving its life, You are supporting our cause~ you became a rescuer too! Warning! It feels GREAT!!
Foster Homes needed!!!!!!..
If you have a little space and a lot of love to give-We need you!! Kitten season is here! We are becoming overwhelmed with kittens and cats.
We desperately need foster homes. We have nursing moms that need foster homes with their kittens, cats or just kittens until they can be spayed and neutered and are able to go up for adoption.
Fostering can be very rewarding. It is a great way to help our animal friends and is immensely appreciated! If you are interested please call and we will provide you with more information.
We just want to remind everyone how important it is to spay and neuter your pets! There are so many wonderful pets at county animal shelters just waiting for someone to take them home and love them. Most do not get that chance. Please, Spay and neuter!!!
Just a thought....
Rescued pets know they are rescued. They are grateful everyday and they will not let you forget that. They teach us some of the most valuable lessons in life. They never give up, they always give second chances and they will always make you feel loved. Some come from the worst situations but their spirits will not be broken. I think we can all learn from them... I know I have.
Each and every time we rescue animals that come with some of the worst stories imaginable we learn some of lifes hard lessons. Some think how lucky the animal is, I always think how lucky we are to have meet these soft souls who are survivors and give them what they deserve. I promise them that their lives will never be the same. They will never go back to their broken pasts and they will always be loved!.
Who We Are
Paw Prints Rescue is a non profit 501 (3) (C) organization. We rescue animals currently in the Yuba and Sutter Counties. We rescue unwanted pets from local shelters, surrendered, homeless and abandoned pets. We place them into loving permanent homes.
CAT RESCUES, All of our cat rescues that are adults and up for adoption have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated + rabies, deflead, dewormed, and are AIDS and Leukemia tested and come with a free local vet check. Kittens under 4 mos of age have appts to be spayed or neutered when adopted. This adoption fee also includes the 3 shots + rabies, spay or neuter, deflea, deworm and free local vet check. DOG RESCUES. All adults 4 mos and older are spayed/ or neutered before they leave our rescue, vaccinated, deflead, dewormed, and come with a free local vet check. Grooming if needed. Puppies come with 3 shots+ rabies, spay/or neuter, deflead, deworm, nail trim and free local vet check.
Adopting a friend
We want to make sure our animal friends get the best home that fits their needs as well as the adoptees. Our first priority will always be our animals. We work hard to attempt to find the most suitable home for our animal's and their new families. We try hard to know a little of the background and about the animals personality.
We do have a contract that has to be signed before any adoption takes place. This is just to ensure that adequate care is provided for our animals so they can achieve their full potential in loving, permanant homes.
Contracts and Fees
We do have a contract that we will go over more thoroughly at the time of adoption. The purpose is to ensure our animals will be properly taken care of.
Our fee is $80.00 per cat or kitten CASH ONLY!! Due to receiving quite a few bad checks we no longer will accept a check. I am sorry about this inconvience. Our adoption fee is used for spaying and neutering, vaccinations, medical care, and various other expenses like food, medications, litter, and other supplies.
Our fee for our puppies and dogs varies. We do NOT ship any of our rescues. It is important for us to meet with the families and make sure it is a proper match. We do not oppose adopting outside of our county. We just want a home where our rescues will have long term commitments and forever be cherished as part of a member of their new family. Again, We accept CASH ONLY! We have received bad checks in the past and can no longer afford to accept checks. We are sorry about this inconvience.
Come Visit Us!
Dogs and Puppies are through appointments only. So please call and we will schedule an appointment. Please do not call way in advance (month, week, days ) We do NOT hold. Only overnight and that is if you are driving from a distance (hour-S). We have a wait list for new rescues to come in and it is not fair to them or the ones with us now. From experience, some people do not let us know they changed their minds until the last minute and we could have possibly placed the rescue in that time we had them on hold. Petfinder is updated daily so just keep checking if you see someone and call when you are ready to add your new family member! We look forward to hearing from you!
We also at various times on weekends do adoptions. Please call ahead to make sure we are able to make it (if we work and not enough of us volunteers we cannot do adoption events).
Their address is 714 Plumas Street. Come see us and check out Gaiser's huge selection of fish and reptile supplies. Also all you will need for your new member of your family! Call first to make sure it is not one of our off weekends. We would set up an appointment and meet if so.
Most of our rescues attend if we have enough volunteers. Again.... Please call ahead to make sure they will be at the adoption site. If there is not enough volunteers then we most likely will cancel. Adults are by appointment only. 530-923-5702 or 923-5701.
Volunteers and Foster Homes
If you love animals and would like to volunteer, please feel free to contact us. We always are in need of volunteers. Serious volunteers only! (sometimes volunteeres volunteer for one week and ask us to take in their animals- after that we never see them again)
We also want send out a big thanks to our Volunteers... Camille, Lynette, Bobbie, Andria, Shari, Jenny, Shauna, Kylie, Ashlie, Adri, Jake and Kylie . Without you there would be no us! Thanks!
Foster families are also needed. If you have a little space and a lot of love to give-We need you!! Fostering can be very rewarding. It is a great way to help our animal friends and is immensely appreciated!
We are always in need of donations.Things we are always in need of are litter, cat toys, climbers, beds, carriers etc. Money donations are also very helpful. They can be helpful with our costs such as veterinary expenses, food etc.

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.
