About Our Rescue Group...
For the Luv of Paws is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, 'no kill' rescue/sanctuary. 2015 is our 11th year of operation; staffed entirely by volunteers. The rescue/sanctuary is located on 10 acres approximately 25 miles outside of Kingman, AZ. We take in owner surrendered pets, pull animals from the county shelter, and rescue strays from city streets. All of our rescue animals are spayed or neutered and brought current on their vaccinations before being adopted out.
Pet Partners for Seniors program for seniors 60+ years of age, on a fixed income, who would like a companion animal. When able, we provide food, treats, toys and transportation to and from vet appts. Adoption fee is reduced by 50% for adult dogs or cats only. Application and home check required.
Pets for Disabled Veterans (service related disabilities). A companion animal is provided to the veteran with a reduced adoption fee. Screening process and home check required; fenced yard for dogs required; cats must be indoors only. When available, we provide help with food, treats, toys; also provide transportation to a veterinarian, if needed.
We also operate a thrift shop in downtown Kingman, Paws-itively Charming Thrift Shoppe & Pet Boutique, which benefits the community by selling gently used items at very affordable prices and the proceeds go directly to the care and comfort of our animals. It is staffed entirely by wonderful, friendly volunteers. 99% of the inventory is donated by the public in Kingman and surrounding areas and Las Vegas, Nevada; the other 1% is handmade and commercial pet products. It has been called 'the best little thrift shop anywhere' by many, many of our customers. We have on-going raffles and aluminum can drives to help raise funds for ongoing operating costs. We provide a large array of literature on spay/neuter, adopting and caring for a pet, training, etc.
For the Luv of Paws is a member organization; annual membership is $15 (individual), $25 (family), $250 (lifetime); We provide membership cards and logo T-shirts are available for $12 and $13. Membership forms can be picked up at the thrift shop or online on our website.
We are always looking for volunteers who would enjoy working in the shop for a few hours a day, a full day or as a fill-in for our regular volunteers; it's a fun place to spend a few hours of your time, whether volunteer or customer.
Volunteers are also needed at the sanctuary for property upkeep, socializing, walking and/or training our dogs, cleaning pens, catteries, brushing/grooming/nail clipping; building projects, etc.
We also need donations, including alfalfa hay pellets, which we use as cat litter,(1800 lbs. used a month); cat/dog food, canned and/or dry; rawhide and other treats, new or used toys; paper towels, baby wipes, detergent, bleach, borax, etc. Our wish list is posted on our web site. Donations can be dropped off at the shop, 204 No. 4th Street in Kingman, at the rescue, at Feathered Friends, 2845 Airway in Kingman, or we will gladly come pick them up.
All donations, goods or monetary, are tax deductible and donors are provided with written receipts.
