Let's be best friends!

Hi guys, Alfie the Australian Kelpie here! I heard you were looking for a dog? That’s so cool! I’m a dog, did you know? I know it’s silly, but I spend most of my time with other humans at Paws 4 You, so I thought maybe I was a human too. Turns out I’m a dog, who would have thought? But hey, that’s what you’re looking for. If you’ll have me, I’ll be the best companion to you. I have heard from my people friends at Paws 4 You that I’m the most loyal dog around. That’s because I love humans SO MUCH. But, even though I love to follow humans around and play with them all the time, I’m an independent guy when it comes to other dogs. So, I’d prefer to be the only dog in the house. I hope that’s ok with you. If it is, I promise I will be the best friend in the world to you. I also heard that I am “easily trainable.” I guess that means that I’m good at learning all the silly tricks humans like, and I’m a good boy on the leash.  It’s kind of true… but I don’t like to brag. Give me a chance to show you how good I am, and maybe we can be best friends!

About Paws 4 You Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Paws 4 You Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer 501(c)3 animal rescue organization based in Miami, Florida. Our top priority is to save animals from euthanasia at Miami-Dade Animal Services. An average of one hundred animals are destroyed every day at this county shelter! Rescued animals vary from being sick, injured, homeless and surrendered to simply lost. We give these animals a safe environment, professional medical care, hope and lots of love. Our animals are sterilized, vaccinated and ID micro-chipped. Some require major surgery from a specialist to repair broken limbs while others may need additional rehabilitation time and specific medical care - ranging from bordetella (kennel cough) and skin infections to cherry eye and heartworm treatments. Once Paws 4 You Rescue commits to helping an animal, we seek the best quality treatment available - taking no shortcuts. Our dogs stay at veterinary clinics, boarding facilities and foster homes until they find their forever families.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Every Sunday from 11am-4pm, volunteers are located at the PetSmart on US1 & SW 136 Street (in Miami across from The Falls). There are various other events that occur throughout the year that are listed on our website. Appointments can be made for during the week or evenings as well -- please call the Rescue Line to set one up or email

Our Adoption Process...

There is an adoption application used as a pre-screening tool (available on, references are required and house visits are made by volunteers. We request a donation with every adoption which includes sterilization, microchip & registration, current vaccinations and a heartworm/ehrlichia test. The adoption donation covers the boarding and medical expenses incurred on all rescues, not just one.
