Duke's Story...

shoe and dog


Our foster dogs live as family members in the foster home until chosen for adoption.


Hi, my name is Duke.


I was first found wandering through the neighborhood searching for food and protection from the weather. I was adopted but returned back to the shelter because I have too much energy for the family. The volunteers here love me and one has this to say about me, "Duke will run into folks when he is excited. I have seen him around kids and have not seen any issues. He was perfectly fine with them. He walks really well on a leash, is very affectionate and playful and has a great personality. He likes to play with toys, gets along well with other dogs and knows basic commands."


At least here at the shelter I have my basic needs met, like food and water plus a roof over my head. However, I am longing to find my forever home and a family to love. I have plenty of love to give. Do you have room in your heart and your home for me??


UPDATE: I AM NOW LIVING IN A WONDERFUL FOSTER HOME!!!!!!!!


I am a young fellow, around two years old and I weigh around 40 pounds. I have already been neutered, given my basic shots, microchipped, and I am heartworm negative.

About Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue was established in 1997 in order to save shelter dogs that need a foster placement.


We are a 501 (3) (c) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.


The reasons for fostering include:


  • Orphans too young for adoption
  • Nursing mothers
  • Mildly sick/injured dogs
  • Dogs that have been abused
  • Dogs that can not adjust to living in a shelter environment

Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue and a local shelter work together to place these dogs in temporary, loving foster homes. When you adopt from us, you are helping to save a shelter dog!!


Our Goal is to save shelter dogs in need and place them in good homes. To promote the placement of special need dogs with the help of adoption bags, grooming, socialization, and providing needed supplies. To pair the right dog with the right human companion(s), enriching everyone's lives.


Our Mission is to develop trust and love with a dog that needs to be reminded that many humans can and will take good, loving care of it for the rest of its lives. To then find loving homes for these previously abused, abandoned, sick, neglected and confused dogs. To give the dog a solid re-start with behavior, health, and trust. To spay/neuter our rescued dogs of age to stop the cycle of unwanted litters.

Our Adoption Process...

Some dogs are at the shelter and some are in a foster home. If the dog you like is at the shelter, please contact the person listed. She will fill you in on all the details.

If the dog you are interested in adopting is currently in a foster home, please EMAIL the individual "Foster Parent" noted in the description.



An Adoption Form Questionnaire will be emailed back to you. Upon completion, email the application back to shelteredpaws@yahoo.com


After review, we will be happy to set up an appointment for you to come and visit with the dog in the foster home.
If the adoption is appropriate, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract.

A nominal adoption fee is charged for each dog. This fee includes a vet check, all shots, any necessary medical work and medication, spay/neuter (if possible and appropriate). All of our work is volunteer. WE MAKE NO PROFIT ON THESE ADOPTIONS. This fee does NOT include those additional things we supply while the pet is in our care e.g. pet supplies, food, toys, grooming, training, etc. (plus a heck of a lot of hugs!)
