About Our Rescue Group:

Our Mission Statement:

“For The Love Of Paws” mission is to humanely minimize the overpopulation and abandonment of domestic animals in our local community. By confronting this issue, we will offer assistance to animals, their keepers and the local community through education, awareness campaigns, and low cost or near free spaying and neutering to local community citizens with low incomes along with assisting the working class.
Our nonprofit organization will initially use a voucher program utilizing our local community veterinarians.
With volunteers we will promote a Spaying/Neutering and Pet Responsibility Awareness Campaign to local school children.
A Pet Pantry and local vet assistance to animal foster parents in conjunction with our pet adoption program. Along with professional veterinarian services in our county, we strive to abolish animal abandonment through the association with facilities in neighboring counties when possible.

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.
