Pet adoption can often be a double-tailed event. At Paws Up 4 Rescue our primary mission is to ensure that each of our Rescue Animals is matched with the right family to ensure a loving and nurturing furever home.
Once the Rescue Animal is placed in our care and custody, they are examined by our Vet, properly vaccinated, tested for parasites and either spayed or neutered. Each of our Rescue Animals is placed in the hands of our caring Foster Parents who will introduce them to family life, care for, train and at times rehabilitate them. We take pride in having a reputation of providing all of our Rescue Animals with the protection and superior care they deserve.
If you ask anyone who has adopted a pet - they will be more than happy to share their story of love, fun, and companionship. Why? Because Rescue Animals are amazing! Adopting a Rescue Animal from Paws Up 4 Rescue is a win-win for both you and your future pet. So what are you waiting for - you can begin your story today!
