MEET LEXI--  (Check out her video)

Yes - this is the dog who was SHOT in the leg and left for dead in Hollywood, FL.  A Good Sam saw her and brought her to the hospital and Grateful Paws was asked to step up and try to help raise funds for her vet bill--AND-- find her a new forever home. 

SHE IS DOING GREAT!  She is in a foster home with a couple other bully breeds and is happy, sweet and trying very hard to be better socialized. But she does like to play rough!  

She is now about a year old, still a puppy, playful and very people friendly. A basic obedience class with a trainer would be helpful... We believe she had been a 'yard dog', so she is learning how to greet new dogs. Her leg has totally healed and she doesn't even walk with a limp!   They saved her leg without surgery - with daily sedation and frequent  bandage and cast changes.  

And we are looking for an ADOPTIVE home for her. Her ideal home would be where she could be the only dog - and with an physically active family who can tire her out.  

Because of her life as a yard-dog prior to coming into our care, she had not been socialized with other dogs as she should have been, so she is re-active when meeting other dogs.  We are working on it that behavior - but for now, an only dog home would be best. 

If interested in adopting/fostering, please email for an application:

An adoption fee of $150 will apply. 

NOTE: Adoption fees are applied towards the vet bill: Exam, blood tests, vaccinations, fecal, worming, spay/neuter, and microchip. There is rarely anything left over, but if that happens, the monies get applied to the next or previous pet - who may have had to have an x-ray, be groomed or have a dental.

About Grateful Paws Dog & Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of animal loving people who volunteer our time to save the life of a dog or cat in need. We are not breed specific but our ability to help depends entirely upon whether we have a foster home in which toi place the pet while we are looking for a new forever home.

We are entirely volunteer and none of us are compensated for our time or efforts. Monies donated go directy to the animals in our care.

Come Meet Our Pets...

For the most part, we reply primarily on the internet because we all work full-time jobs during the week!

We do not have a physical building - but we try to participate in Saturday adoption events from 11am - 3pm, on a regular basis. Please check our website for our most current calendar that shows where we will be.

It is always best to check the Upcoming Events page of our website

or give us a call to find out where we are going to be. Week nights 954-462-8840 eves after 8pm or on the week-ends: 954-579-3753.

Our EMAIL is monitored day and night, and is the BEST way to contact us.


Our Adoption Process...

We perform a telephone or in-person interview and ask our perspective adopters to complete an application for review by our board (generally takes a day or less). We want to meet the family, so we will come to your house to see where our pet will live. We do a vet check and if applicable, a landlord or condo association check as well. And finally, we accept an adoption donation that is applied towards the vet and care bill for that pet. The range is from $75 to $300.
