their Lives
on it


Sweet Paws Rescue (SPR) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit and volunteer based organization. We rely on sponsors, donations, and grants to fund our ongoing rescue efforts. The generosity of our supporters is critical for the animals we rescue - their lives depend on it.

SPR is unique in that our rescue efforts start when our southern team physically rescues an injured, sick or abandoned animal. This differs from other rescue organizations that may only represent one facet of the animal rescue process. We don't have the luxury of cherry picking our rescues and we become financially responsible for that being from ground zero, through medical treatment, transport, (state mandated) quarantine, the adoption process, and right into their forever home. In addition to providing the love, food, and basic veterinary care our animals need to thrive, we are providing Heartworm treatment to many of our adult dogs, and sometimes even life sustaining surgeries and emergency care. Our adoption fees only offset the costs associated with each life we save.

For an emerging organization, we rescue and home as many animals as other larger and local brick and mortar organizations with paid staff and endowments.
