Puppy Paws Rescue was created in March of 2013 in order to find loving homes for abandoned puppies and dogs. We are a non-profit (501c3) Corporation.
First you fill out an application at www.puppypawsrescue.org. Once the application has been received, a processor will review all information. If you have had a pet before, we will need your vet's information and phone number. We will then contact the veterinary office and inquire about regular vaccinations provided to your current or past pets. We will also check if your dogs are spayed neutered and on regular monthly heartworm prevention. After the initial background check we interview and perform a home visit. If all is, well, we then set up a meet and greet at the foster home. Please note: Since our goal is to place all puppies and dogs into forever homes, careful consideration has to be made if you have previously ever given up a pet. We also check the Maryland judiciary case search history for trends. Please only apply if you are ready for a dog or puppy. Often we go through this process, put the puppy on hold for a family, only to find out that the family is not ready.
