Volunteers at Pet Supermarket


We have rescued over 2,000 cats and dogs as volunteers in the Citrus County area. We are all animal lovers that are here to serve our community, reduce pet overpopulation, re-home pets, care for abandoned animals, foster, and show animals to help them find forever homes. We do a great deal of this work in our homes, and in donated spaces. We are fundraising to purchase our own building that will allow us to serve more animals in a safe and sanitary environment. We are no-kill organization.

Our Mission

The goal of Precious Paws Rescue is to reduce pet overpopulation through rescuing, fostering, adopting and sponsoring low cost spay, neuter and vaccinations programs.

Adoption Process

Adoption December 2017Prospective adopters are asked to complete an adoption application. The information requested gives the PPR volunteer a brief insight into your lifestyle and living arrangements.  If you do not own your home you will be asked to provide a note from your landlord indicating that you may have pets in your home.  The question about current pets in the household is important.  It is the practice of PPR not to adopt an animal to families where non-sterilized pets are living. An effective sterilization program is the key to decreasing the number of homeless pets. Information on your pets also gives the PPR volunteer information on the possible compatibility of the PPR rescued pet and your current household pets.   PPR volunteers are working to place each pet in the most suitable home environment.  As PPR pets are fostered in a home environment the foster parent is able to identify the habits of the rescue pet and the home and lifestyle of the adoptive family will make for the most successful adoption.
