Areas Southern Paws Inc. Serves

Southern Paws Inc. is a Non-Profit organization that works very closely with southern rescue groups to provide needed homes for dogs in the Southern United States. Through our program we also work to help them gain needed resources and funding that is strongly lacking in the south. It is our goal to not only provide loving homes for these dogs but to also help better shelters and shelter life in the South.
We handle adoptions in the North Eastern part of the United States.

Southern Paws Inc.'s Adoption Process

Our adoption process is very simple.

1) Shoot us an email! And one of our representatives will send you out a copy of our application. Fill that out and get it back to us immediately. Time is of the essence and we do everything first come first serve!
2) Once we receive it a representative will be in touch with you to find out what it is that you are looking for, what your home is like, and who lives there. We then try to make sure that the dog you are interested in, is going to be a perfect match for your household.
3) It normally takes a couple of days for an application to be processed, but once approved we do a home check.
4) Adoption fee is $450.00. This is a reimbursement for all that we have done your dog. This fee covers all of their vetting, vaccinations, spay/neuter, health certificate and evaluation, and their cost of transport.

About Southern Paws Inc.

Southern Paws Inc. is a Non-Profit organization that works very closely with southern rescue groups to provide needed homes for dogs in the Southern United States. Through our program we also work to help them gain needed resources and funding that is strongly lacking in the south. It is our goal to not only provide loving homes for these dogs but to also help better shelters and shelter life in the South. We work specifically with rescue groups in Louisiana and Mississippi which is where our dogs are currently located. All of our dogs are adopted on a pre-adoption basis and then transported to NJ after the adoption process is complete. Upon arrival they go into a 24-48 hour monitoring period, where we make sure that they have made it through transport safe, happy, and healthy. After that time period, these dogs go into their forever home. It is a long journey but it is well worth the trip.

We put all of our dogs through a very stringent vetting process, deworm them multiple times, run fecal exams, spay & neuter, vaccinate and have them checked multiple times by the vet. Before they are transported, each of our dogs must receive a health certificate clearing them for travel. This fee also helps us cover the cost of transport and any other medical attention the dog may require upon arrival. There is a $500 adoption fee.

Please note that for all adoptions taking place after April 1, 2022 our adoption fee has increased $50 to be a total of $500. This is to help up cover all costs for the pups such as vetting, medicine, gas and other typical costs. With these having gone up over the last year, we need to increase the adoption fee to continue the work we do and help as many dogs as possible. This will mean our non-refundable deposit following the phone interview will be a total of $100 with the additional $400 due on adoption day.

Because almost all of our dogs are pre-adopted there is no meet and greet process with our dogs. If you must meet the dog before you adopt then that is totally understandable, however we may not be the best program for you. We do have a back up program just in case a dog doesn't do well in his new home. In that case the pup goes back into foster care and will be put up for adoption again in the state of NJ.

Come Meet Southern Paws Inc.'s Pets

Almost all of our dogs are adopted on a pre-adoption basis as they are not located in NJ.

On the occasion that one of our pups is here in NJ, all meet and greets are done through appointment only after an application has been approved. If interested in meeting one of our wonderful babies please contact us at: southernpawsrescue@gmail.com or call her at 973-556-5885.
