Happy Paws Happy Homes is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that serves as a liaison between rescues, shelters, the public, and dogs. We do not have a physical facility that you
can visit where the dogs on this website are "housed." Some of the dogs on this site are still in shelters. Others are in a rescue group. Some are courtesy posted for families who need to find another home for their pet.

We love dogs! We work with and for dogs that need to find their forever homes. The sad reality is that there is not an available home for every dog. A large part of our group's mission is to promote spay/neuter and the adoption option. We must emphasize that spaying and neutering companion animals is critical to ending pet overpopulation. For every dog that finds a home, many do not.
