Hope 4 Paws Dog Rescue
Saving Paws 4 at a Time
People like the idea of adopting a rescue dog, but many are expecting the "perfect" dog or puppy immediately without having to expend any time or energy.  
We believe that all of our rescue dogs are "perfect" for someone, and have tremendous potential however, this does require dedication and commitment from our adopters.  
The willingness to devote the necessary time to ensure that your new family member feels loved and secure is essential.  
Please keep in mind that some dogs may need work to overcome obstacles or 'bad' behaviors.  
Rescue dogs need, more than anything, the stability of a forever home, and our main goal is to make sure that these dogs will be well taken care of and never returned to the shelter cycle.
Rescue dogs overcome great obstacles and never stop fighting for a chance at a forever home!  Please give them a chance!
Buy a Bed, Give a Bed!

and they will donate a dog bed to
