Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
We adopt our dogs and cats into homes that can provide for them. The dogs and cats brought into our rescue are mostly taken from high kill shelter. Many have had a very rough start in life. We take them in, treat them for injuries and health issues if needed and then find wonderful homes for them.
We started Purrs, Paws, and Claws in 2005. We saw to many animals being put to sleep because of shelter overcrowding. We started rescueing cats and now work with farm animals and dogs mostly. We feel that we make a difference for each animal that passes through our doors. Seeing the difference if make for each of them is very rewarding. I enjoy adopting out our dogs and meeting each family. I love seeing the smiles on the faces when they meet their new family member for the first time. We have made many friends along the way and get many updated pictures of animals that we have placed. This is what keeps us going. Rescue is not always a happy thing. We shed tears all the time for the little ones that have been pushed just to far and that have given up. We show them as much love as we can until the end. As least they can leave this world knowing that they had someone that really did care for them. It's also because of these babies that we will always do what we can to make a difference for as many as we can.
Our Adoption Process:
We always have our adopters fill out an application for adoption. Just because you fill out an application do not mean you will be able to adopt from Purrs, Paws, and Claws. We try very hard to work with any one that is wanting to adopt from our group. If we see an issue we will talk with you about it and make sure you understand any issue. We want good, forever homes for our animals. There are adoption fees on all our animals as well. All adoption fees go back into the rescue to help with pulling fees, medical costs, food, bedding, cleaning supplies, and many others things needed to keep our doors open.
Our Adopted Pets:
We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!
