My name is Hope, and I was named that by the nice lady at the animal shelter. I was taken from my owner because he wasn't being very nice to me...I was skinny when they saved me, and I had a big sore running down my back. I can't really tell them how I got it, but it really doesn't matter now because I AM SAFE! My skin is healed now, although I do have a scar, but I don't care because life is GREAT! I live in a foster home with lots of other pups, and I get to romp and play in a big back yard! I eat good food, and I have my own special bed that I hang out in when my foster mom and dad are at work. I've learned how to use the doggie door, too, so I don't have accidents in the house! I'm learning my manners which is sometimes hard because I'm so eager to get allllll the love I can, but my foster parents understand that and have been very patient with me. Sometimes when they move their hands too quick I blink a lot, but I know they love me so I'm trying really hard to trust them. I love hugs and kisses, and I love when my mom and dad snuggle my head and scratch my ears. I want a fun, safe home where I can get lots of love, and I'd love to learn some new tricks, too! Can we be friends? I sure would like that!

About Paddy's Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

Our primary goal is to find adoptive homes for these amazing animals that are located in shelters, rescues and foster homes. How does it work? You fill out a Paddy's Paws Application which will be submitted for approval for adoption to the Houston rescues. This application is used for Lola's Lucky Day and Houston K911, two 501c3 organizations. Why the same application for two different organizations? It helps streamline the process! There may not be a dog in Lola's for you, but there might be at K911...and you don't have to go through additional steps!

Our adoption process works a bit different than other shelters and rescues! Paddy's Paws serves as a coordinator for Houston rescues. We send out the applications, arrange homevisits and secure back up fosters for each of the dogs that will be transported here. Like most foster-based organizations, we do not have a facility and set up all appointments on an individual basis. Prior to any meet and greets, we require an approved application so we will need to go through all the steps before having you meet any of the available dogs here in Wisconsin.

The application, reference checks and homevisit are considered part of the general approval process and we cannot guarantee that a specific dog will still be available when you complete the process, but doing so will get you access to our "match making" service where you will have bios and pictures of multiple dogs that may be exactly what you're looking for! And, of course, there's always the possibility that the dog that sparked your initial interest will still be available!

Begin your application process here:

We start with the completed application and then check references/vet records. The next step is a homevisit with family and one of our representatives. Once we have gathered all this information, we provide it to the Houston team. Then, we can set up a meet and greet with available dogs.
