Currently Living at: SC boarding. Abigail needs a foster, or better yet, an adopter!

This sweet pup has her eye on YOU! If you're looking for a dog who isn't afraid to show her love, this could be a match made in heaven. She loves being with her people. Like most pointers, she's also very energetic and intelligent. Abi would make a great dog for an active family.

Like most shelter dogs, Abigail may need a refresher on housetraining and crate training. While we cannot guarantee a dog is housebroken, she has not had accidents in her kennel run in boarding. We ask all of DC PAWS’ fosters to work on both house and crate training with their foster dog.

If you are interested in adopting her, please submit an adoption application at<p>

<p>About DC PAWS Rescue</p>
<p>Our rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based dog and cat rescue in the DC area. We partner with a local rescuer in Pickens County, SC, who saves adoptable cats and dogs from the county’s animal control facility, which lacks the resources to facilitate adoptions to the public. Without a mechanism for local adoptions, all animals not claimed within the mandated hold period are euthanized. For the animals in this rural area, rescue is really the only lifeline. Our rescue partner not only works with DC PAWS to save as many dogs and cats as possible, but she has also established a successful spay/neuter clinic in the community to decrease the number of homeless and unwanted animals over the long term.</p>

<p>BE A FOSTER:</p>
<p>Fosters make it possible for DC PAWS to save and care for homeless, neglected and abandoned animals! To learn about fostering dogs or cats for DC PAWS Rescue, please contact us at:!

<p>BE A SPONSOR:</p>
</p>For any of our animals! Sponsors help us provide critical medical care, food, boarding and other support for animals facing euthanasia. Individuals who sponsor a dog or cat receive special recognition on the animal's profile.  Sponsorships can also be made in honor or memory of a loved one, and you may designate to whom DC Paws Rescue should provide notice of your gift.

About DC PAWS Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

DC PAWS Rescue was formed to serve the interests of animals through activities such as animal rescue; providing sanctuary for abused animals; public education concerning the needs of animals in shelters, positive-reinforcement training for animals; placement of rescued animals in adoptive homes, and other related charitable activities.

Come Meet Our Pets...

At Adoption events listed on our website: and at foster homes, once an adoption application has been submitted and approved.

Please note that we are an all-volunteer organization and while it is our goal to respond to all emails we receive, we may not be able to do so due to the large volume of emails we receive.
