Detailed Description: Precious Paws Rescue has a new and innovative approach to rescue and rehoming of homeless and unwanted animals.
We have partnered with local retailers to start a food donation program which greatly reduces our operating expenses; partnered with a vet for veterinary services below retail cost; and partnered with many volunteers throughout our community and several states to provide foster homes for the animals in our care until a new, permanent adoptive home is approved.
We have a strict adoption policy; all potential adopters are interviewed, home visits are often conducted; supervised visits with the pet(s) are conducted prior to adoption approval, etc. We go above and beyond the local and state requirements when vetting animals - our "standard" includes altering the pet, full health checkup including eyes, ears, hips, etc., complete suite of vaccinations, heartworm testing, and all pets in our care are maintained on heartworm and flea/tick preventatives at all times.
We offer community education programs on animal cruelty and abuse, bite prevention, responsible pet ownership, and pet overpopulation. We also offer a "Seniors for Seniors" program, which pairs older dogs with senior citizens or home-bound individuals - providing companionship for the people, and homes for pets that would otherwise be passed over in favor of younger animals in shelters.
