Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Many dogs come to us from around the Memphis, TN area and get transported up to Northern WI. On transport day we can meet adopters along the route to pick up your new family addition. We also have fosters in WI, MN, and Upper MI. We are always looking for more fosters!

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small group of animal lovers that come from different backgrounds. We all have the common goal of saving animals. We strive to better the lives of pets and humans through adoption and education.

Come Meet our Pets:

Currently most of our dogs are in Phillips WI. You can call our main number to arrange a time to view a dog you may be interested in. Some of our pets are already in foster homes, and some are located in the south. We have teamed up with some of the shelters and rescue groups to do everything to help them. Of course we serve our community always.

Our Adoption Process:

We require an adoption application, which requires a veterinary check. Depending on the specific dog home visit might be required. Fees differ slightly depending on the dog.
Many dogs listed are cross posted from high kill shelters in the south. We do pre-adoptions to try to assist these shelters. Most are not yet in Wisconsin, so they are not available to just come visit them. We can assist more by having approved homes for them before they come up on transport.

How the pre-adoption process works for puppies pulled from kill shelters in the south:
-If you see one on petfinder that you are interested in adopting, email us at rescuepaws@yahoo.com for an adoption application.
-Return completed application.
-We look over your application. If you are approved you make a $50 deposit to us through Paypal. Your deposit reserves that puppy for you.
-We work to arrange transport that brings the puppies from the south up to Wisconsin. We will email you to let you know what day transport will be. We will set times to meet adopters along our route back up to Northern Wisconsin. The towns we can meet adopters in are Rockford, Madison, Portage, Stevens Point, Wausau, Tomahawk, Prentice, Phillips, and Park Falls.
-When we meet you at a designated area you will pay the remainder of the adoption fee and will take home your puppy along with any paperwork he/she comes with.

We do pull adult dogs as well. However we donít generally pre-adopt the adults. We prefer people to come and meet them after they are up in Northern Wisconsin before deciding if the dog is right for you.

Call Bob at 906.285.0819, or email us at rescuepaws@ymail.com for information or to recieve an adoption application.

~If you canít adopt, foster If you canít foster, sponsor If you canít sponsor, volunteer If you canít volunteer, donate.. If you canít donate, educate, network and crosspost on social networks. Everyone can do something, large or small, to help save a life~

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
