Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Paddywack Pooches - Give a Dog A Home serves the 7 county Twin Cities Metro area, although we work closely with several out-of-state shelters to bring dogs who are in unsafe or life threatening situations home to Minnesota.

About Our Rescue Group:

Family owned and founded on a history of care, inspired by Rosa Camille Williams, Mary T. and companies have been providing service to senior communities and persons with disabilities since 1976.
We continue to offer this personal tradition of care to you and your family through home health care, rental and senior housing, human service program options, independent living services, and hospice care. Locations include Minnesota, Wisconsin, Maryland, and Arizona.
We provide programs and services to seniors, people with traumatic brain injuries, children and adults who are medically fragile, individuals with physical and developmental disabilities, and those who need accessible rental housing.

The Mary T. Inc. organization now offers companion animal services, working within the community to bring animals in need together with with seniors, people with differing abilities, and the community at large. Our goal is to provide rescue services and education to help bridge the loneliness gap and enhance the human-animal bond, while providing safe-haven to abused, neglected, or forgotten animals.

Our Adoption Process:

The Paddywack Pooches staff try to return all adoption inquiries within 2 business days. The primary goal of Paddywack Pooches is to offer safe haven to dogs who have been neglected, abused, or forgotten. Most of our adoptable animals have come from difficult situations, and before adopting them to a forever home they are kept with one of our fosters to allow for a trust bond to be re-established, and for the dog to have a period of rest and rehabilitation.

Our adoption process involves an initial application, followed by a phone interview, background check, and a home visit. Once these have been successfully completed, one of our staff will work with you to choose the perfect companion for you, your family, and your lifestyle.

We work closely with residential group homes, assisted living facilities, seniors, and veterans who are looking to expand their love to include a companion dog. Because this sometimes involves a more specialized process, we will partner with you and share our experience and background in selecting the right companion for your home, family, program, or facility.

After a match is made, an adoption contract is filled out, and we offer resources (training, nutrition, coaching on how to acclimate your new family member) to help with the re-homing process. Depending on the amount of vetting we have done with an individual dog, our adoption donation ranges from $100-$250.

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.
