About Saving Paws

Mission Statement

Saving Paws Animal Rescue Inc. is dedicated to rescuing homeless, abandoned and special needs animals and finding new adoptive homes or providing a lifelong sanctuary for them; to train and provide service dogs to children, adults and Veterans with disabilities to help with both physical and emotional independence. We also seek to educate the public regarding animal responsibility and the use of service dogs in public places.

Our History

It started with two women; Michelle and Betsy had been rescuing and caring for homeless, abandoned, sick, injured and special needs pets for more than 13 years on their own. They met at a veterinarian's office, joined forces, and the rest is history.

We received our official 501(c)(3) letter in September, 2006.

In 2021, we began construction of a dog building to allow for more efficient space usage.

Since our beginnings, we've continued to grow and change but our love of helping as many cats and dogs as we can has stayed the same.
