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

This is Charlie.

Charlie is a sweet and very special dog. He first came to the shelter as a stray but has since moved into a wonderful foster home. His right back leg does not bend. He had a previous injury that was not treated properly, so his knee and femur are fused together. He doesn’t let his disability stop him!

He loves to run around and play with toys! He has learned to use stairs and can even get up on the couch. He is great with dogs and people alike. When not chasing after a ball, he loves to sit and cuddle with his humans. Charlie is house trained and crate trained. He is very food motivated and eager to please. He would do great in an obedience class. Charlie is an amazing and sweet dog who deserves to find his forever home. This boy will steal your heart! .

Thanks for considering a rescue dog.

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

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!)
