OPERATION PAWS FOR HOMES

OPH Rescue

Operation Paws for Homes is a 501(c)(3) dog rescue organization that is run by dedicated volunteers who help save dogs in need. Your generous donations directly help cover the costs of rescuing dogs in need. We also work hard to support the shelters we work with in the south. It is only due to the patronage of people like you that we can save dogs and give them a chance to find a forever home.

Our organization is comprised solely of amazing volunteers! We are a dedicated group of animal lovers who have seen the horrors and sad fate of dogs who are abandoned in rural high kill shelters. These rural facilities have limited budgets and limited adopters. With limited resources, the shelters are forced to put down anywhere between 50% and 90% of the animals that come in the front door. 

After visiting several facilities, we set up this rescue to do everything we could to give these deserving animals a second chance. We are young, but we have wonderful relationships with each of the shelters we work with. We love helping them and there is no better feeling than pulling out of the shelter’s parking lot with 15 lucky dogs who are being given a new lease on life! In addition to rescuing dogs from these shelters, we have also supported these facilities in other ways. We have made several donations to the shelters and offer assistance with guidance and resources whenever possible.

We are located across four states, which allows us to save dogs from many facilities and to find loving homes in multiple locations. All of our rescued animals are cared for in foster homes where they receive the love, care and proper nutrition; these are all things our dogs may not have had before we met them.

Our adoption process includes a review of each potential family, including reference checks, vet checks, home checks and a personal "meet and greet" where the family can meet and interact with their potential new four-legged family member. Each dog has been rescued from a bad situation, so we try to ensure they never return to that fate. Once adopted, we hope that their memories of the shelter will become distant and they will experience what is truly means to have a forever home.
