We are a volunteer foster based rescue. Our fosters are located in the Twin Cities area. We adopt animals out to surrounding cities and states.

About Our Rescue Group:

Protecting Paws Animal Rescue was created, founded and operated by Keri Marsh . Our rescue saves animals from shelters, pounds, and unsafe situations to give them their chance at a happy and healthy future. We are a foster based rescue and all of our animals are in loving foster homes who incorporate training to match each animals needs in order to make them great companions to potential adopters!

PPAR was created in September 2012 and is growing everyday but we are always in need of more fosters, volunteers, and donations. If you want to get involved in rescue please visit our website http://protecting-paws.org/ or send us an email.

Our Adoption Process:

All of our available dogs are currently in foster homes. If you are interested in meeting one of our available dogs please email infonow@protecting-paws.org or go to our website and fill out an adoption application. Approved applicants will be contacted and we will set up a time for you to meet the available dog. If a match is made we will do a home visit, complete an adoption contract and finalize the adoption. All available dogs are given age appropriate vaccines, veterinary exams, spayed/neutered, and dewormed prior to adoption. Adoption fees are based on age and breakdown as follows; Under 1 yr $350, 2-3 years $300, 4-6 years $200, 7 years and older $150 (tax not included).

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.
