“Paws for Thought” Rescue is a small team of a husband & wife. Our aim is to successfully rescue, rehabilitate and ethically rehome companion dogs taken from death row.
We take dogs from local high-kill pounds & give them the second chance they deserve.
“Paws for Thought” is not a shelter. It is a foster home who’s goal it is to place companion animals in safe, family settings.
Each dog is kept in a loving home and treated as one of ours until their forever home is found.
We provide stability, training, housebreaking and socialization whilst waiting for their adoptive family.
While some are adopted out in a relatively short time, others may be with us for a more extended time.
We believe there is a perfect forever home for each pet.
We have been inundated with calls from the general public, using our personal details to contact us, begging us to rescue dogs on their behalf. \ Please... do not contact us. We are well aware of the dogs in the pounds and we choose our dogs carefully in order to bring them into our homes.
We do not accept private surrenders either.
All PFT dogs are selected by us through the pound system only.
A lengthy discussion with our adoption coordinator & filling out an application form.
