Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
Paws and Claws Pet Rescue is a community service club run mostly by students at Mayflower High School. There are a few adult volunteers, and the group provides veterinary care and finds homes for stray animals, mostly from the Mayflower Animal Shelter, but also from other towns and counties.
We are a small but loving group that tries to break even. Our vet charges $100 for dogs and $75 for cats for his complete rescue package, including surgery. We provide heartworm prevention to our heartworm negative dogs and have fund raisers to pay for heartworm treatment if a dog needs it. We do not euthanize any of our animals. We also help animal owners by securing grant money to pay for spay/neuter, helping place pets that they can no longer keep, and in general do anything within our power to help pets and their humans, with our top priority being what is in the best interest for the animal. We desperately need fosters and volunteers of all ages. Volunteering is a great family activity.
Donate to Our Rescue Group...
All donations through Adopt-a-Pet should be made out to Mayflower Animal Clinic and will be used to pay veterinary bills.
Come Meet our Pets:
Animals may be seen by appointment. All of our rescues are currently in foster care, but readily available for viewing. We strongly urge potential adopters to bring other pets to meet the new animal and also all members of the family prior to finalizing any adoption. We will take any animal back that does not end up being a good fit with the family, but we prefer that you ask all your questions up front to avoid having to return an animal.
Our Adoption Process:
The adoption fee for dogs is $100. All of our dogs are fully vetted and spayed or neutered. They have friendly dispositions and leave us ready to become beloved pets. We provide vet records and a current rabies tag with each one. The same is true for cats, but their adoption fee is $75. Owners must fill out an adoption application, and the rescue may do reference checks prior to adoption. We will not adopt to anyone who wants to keep a dog outside in an unfenced yard.
