Sweet Paws Rescue rescues and rehomes dogs from Mississippi, Alabama and Massachusetts and works to improve legislation and awareness of dog rescue in these areas.
Sweet Paws Rescue (SPR) is a registered non-profit animal rescue based in Massachusetts. We are a grassroots, boots-on-the-ground, shelterless, foster-based and volunteer-powered organization. We primarily work within two of the poorest counties in Mississippi and Alabama and since 2011, we have rescued close to 18,000 puppies, dogs, kittens and cats that would not have a chance at life otherwise. We are also a New England resource for the abandoned and displaced, and animals seized in cruelty cases within our home state.
SPR is unique in that our rescue efforts start when our southern team physically rescues an injured, sick or abandoned animal. This differs from other rescue organizations that may only represent one facet of the animal rescue process. We don't have the luxury of cherry-picking our rescues and we become financially responsible for that, being from ground zero through medical treatment, transport, quarantine (state mandated), the adoption process, and right into their forever home. In addition to providing the love, food, and basic veterinary care our animals need to thrive, we are providing Heartworm treatment to many of our adult dogs, and sometimes even life sustaining surgeries and emergency care. Our adoption fees only offset the costs associated with each life we save.
