About Our Rescue Group:For the Luv of Paws is a 'never kill' rescue/sanctuary, fifth year of operation; staffed entirely by volunteers. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. The rescue/sanctuary is located on 10 acres in the mountains with an awesome 360 degree view; no neighbors for a mile in any direction, surrounded by BLM/designated wilderness, approx. 25 miles outside of Kingman, AZ. We take in owner surrendered pets, pull animals from the county shelter, rescue strays from city streets. All of our rescues are spayed or neutered and brought current on their vaccinations before being adopted out. We have launched a Pet Partners for Seniors program for seniors 60+ years of age, on a fixed income, who would like a companion animal. We provide food, treats, toys and transportation to and from vet appts.
Our newest program is Pets for Disabled Veterans. A companion animal is provided to the veteran with no adoption fee. Screening process and home check required; fenced yard for dogs required; cats must be indoors only.
We also operate a thrift shop in downtown Kingman, Paws-itively Charming Thrift Shoppe & Pet Boutique, which benefits the community by selling gently used items at very affordable prices and the proceeds go directly to the care and comfort of our animals. It is staffed entirely by wonderful, friendly volunteers. 99% of the inventory is donated by the public in Kingman and surrounding areas and Las Vegas, Nevada; the other 1% is handmade and commercial pet products. It has been called 'the best little thrift shop anywhere' by many, many of our customers. We have on-going raffles, sidewalk sales and aluminum can drives to help pay our vet bills. We also video tape the dogs and cats in their play yards and catteries, which run continuously on a TV at the shop. We provide a large array of literature on spay/neuter, adopting and caring for a pet, training, etc.
For the Luv of Paws is a member organization; annual membership is $15 (individual), $25 (family); logo T-shirts are free with a membership and we provide membership cards. (T-shirts are donated; no FLP funds are used)
We are always looking for volunteers who would enjoy working in the shop for a few hours a day, a full day or as a fill-in for our regular volunteers; it's a fun place to spend a few hours of your time, whether volunteer or customer.
We are always in need of volunteers at the sanctuary for property upkeep, socializing, walking and/or training our dogs, cleaning pens, catteries, brushing/grooming/nail clipping; building projects, etc.
We also need donations and are so appreciative of any brand of scoopable cat litter (1800 lbs. is used a month); litter deodorizer, cat/dog food, canned and/or dry; rawhide and other treats, new or used toys; paper towels, baby wipes, detergent, bleach, borax, etc. Our wish list is posted on our web site. Donations can be dropped off at the shop, 204 No. 4th Street in Kingman, or we will gladly come pick them up.
All donations, goods or monetary, are tax deductible and donors are provided with written receipts.
