About SPR


Our Mission

SPR rescues and rehomes dogs from Mississippi, Alabama and Massachusetts and works to improve legislation and awareness of dog rescue in these areas.

Sweet Paws Rescue is a Massachusetts registered nonprofit 501 (C)(3)"shelter-less " dog rescue, founded by Cynthia Sweet in 2011. The rescue is run by Cynthia and a team of amazing fosters & volunteers all across New England. SPR also teams up with a close network of seasoned and reputable rescue women in Alabama and Mississippi to help provide aid due to an overpopulation problem in the South. In return, this network of women works diligently to create awareness, educate the next generation and reform legislation.
