Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Pick Your Paw Animal Rescue is a small, grass roots network of 10 to 12 animal lovers working together to rehabilitate 6 to 10 rescued dogs at a time, until that rescue is ready for placement as a companion animal. We pull dogs from both local kill-shelters, as well as pulling from the New York City Animal Care and Control’s nightly “To Be Destroyed List”, and Miami-Dade Animal Services to be destroyed list as well. We are committed to providing spay/neuter, all appropriate medical treatment, foster homes/kenneling, training, socializing, and creating behavioral improvement plans for every dog who enters Pick Your Paw Animal Rescue. Pick Your Paw makes a lifetime commitment to each dog to help them become stable pets and to match them to their best forever home. Education of the adopter and general public are vital components of our program as we work to end the ease with which people give up on, and ‘throw away’ their family pets. Each dog that exits a shelter, a surrendering home, or a transport vehicle hears the same whispered words, “You are safe. You will not be hurt again. You will find your home, I promise you.” In every walk, play date, CGC class, adoption event or adopter interview, this promise is made good.Our dogs are placed in foster homes, or boarded at a nearby kennel/day care. Dogs are fully vetted, providing the same level of veterinary care for our rescue dogs that we provide to our own family pets. We consult with animal behaviorists to address issues that dogs enters our program with in order to make them more highly adoptable. Dogs have attended and graduated from Canine Good Citizen classes. All applicants are carefully screened, including a comprehensive reference check (veterinarian and personal references), multiple phone interviews, and home checks. Follow up check and calls continue past the adoption. We provide support, advice, and continued contact for each adopting family. Educating the public, one dog at a time, to create a different viewpoint of the pit bull terrier is also an integral part of our mission.

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.
