PAWS Rescue of Northern Virginia is an incorporated, non-profit 501c3 rescue and adoption organization established to rescue homeless and abandoned dogs and find them loving homes in the Northern VA area. We are committed to saving as many dogs from euthanasia as possible. We rescue dogs from rural kill shelters and help them find loving homes.
PAWS Rescue is a NO-KILL rescue group. We spay/neuter, vaccinate, de-worm, and micro-chip all our dogs as well as provide medical attention when needed. We rehabilitate our dogs by using behavioral training and giving them lots of love to restore their faith in human beings.
OUR MISSION: PAWS Rescue seeks to find adoptive homes for homeless animals. Without our help, the dogs rescued from rural, high-kill shelter would face an almost certain death. Since starting the rescue in February 2009, PAWS has found homes for over 300 dogs from shelters on the east coast. Many of these dogs are puppies who are victims of irresponsible pet owners who don't practice spay/neuter. These innocent animals are then dumped at local shelters where there chances of finding forever homes is greatly diminished.
Once they are with PAWS Rescue, they are guaranteed to find a loving and forever home. We are committed to be a no-kill organization despite any challenges that may arise be it health or behavior. Our fosters are experienced in rehabilitating injured, abused and neglected dogs that would otherwise not have a chance.
