My Story

Izzy is a gorgeous 10 yr old great dane who is in a permanent foster home because of her age. She was returned to rescue after several years because of a difficult home situation. Because of her advanced age, we didn't want to transfer her to yet another home. So she's with Peaceful Paws for life.

Izzy loves her basset brother and sister. She plays with them and rolls around with them. She recently spent her days keeping close company to help her human sister recooperate from a broken leg. Her cat sisters were a bit wary of her at first but she soon won them over and they now rub against her a cuddle with her. Her forever foster family loves her very much, and she is a pampered, adored princess.

During her stay with us, Izzy will accrue day to day costs as well as vet costs to maintain her health. Peaceful Paws is accepting donations for her care at www.peacefulpawsrescue.org, or paypal to info@peacefulpawsrescue.org

Adoption Process

Peaceful Paws has a simple adoption process, explained below.

First, You Should Know

1. Peaceful Paws does not adopt to families with children under 10 years of age.
2. We rarely have puppies under 9 months of age in rescue. It happens occasionally but it is rare.
3. We do not adopt to renters unless there are special circumstances.
4. We rarely have dogs who are highly social with people AND dogs AND cats.

Now, onto the process...
1. Complete an application to adopt online at www.peacefulpawsrescue.org or email info@peacefulpawsrescue.org to have an application mailed to you.

2. A volunteer will call you to talk to you about your expectations and explain how the adoption process works.

3. Should both of you wish to proceed, we'll either arrange to visit your home first or we'll arrange for you to visit a dog that matches your family.

4. Then we'll switch that around, and either you'll visit a dog that matches your family or we'll arrange for a dog to visit your home.

During this time, we're available to answer any questions you may have.

Adoption Donation
Peaceful Paws asks for a donation at the time of adoption to help defray the many expenses of running a rescue, including administrative, medical, behavioral, general and emergency costs. In return, we make sure the dog is spayed or neutered, heartworm tested, up to date on vaccinations and given a clean bill of health (or disclose any known issues). On average, we spend $350 or more on a dog in our program.

6 months or younger - $400
6 months to 6 years of age - $350
over 6 years of age - $250
