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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Adoption Process...
There is an adoption application used as a pre-screening tool (available on paws4you.org/application), 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.
