Please note that we are not halting adoptions! Our animals still need homes! We are simply scheduling appointments for approved adopters. For questions or more information about our available animals, email us at [email protected]. Thank you for your cooperation, flexibility, and understanding.
Before You Begin
We are seeking the best match for our animals. As such, we consider all applications for a particular animal and do not operate on a first-come-first-serve basis. The decision to adopt is an important one which we take very seriously. We approve adopters who have excellent veterinary history which includes annual wellness exams and preventive care for their pets, as well as immediate medical attention for illness or injury.
At this time, Helping PAWS Pet Rescue does not have any dogs available for adoption. Please check availability at our partner rescues Chequamegon Humane Association and Catkins Animal Rescue, both located in Wisconsin.
Helping PAWS Pet Rescue is accepting adoption applications for small dogs. If there is interest from people and they are approved to adopt, we will work with a southern high-kill rescue organization (likely in Texas or Oklahoma) to arrange for dogs to be transported here. They will be fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, and spayed/neutered. Adoption costs will range from $300-$500. If there is enough interest, our goal is to make this happen by the end of summer. If you are interested in adopting a small dog, please visit our Adopt page to learn more about the adoption process and complete our online application.
Helping PAWS is a 501(c)(3) organization. We are primarily a volunteer-run organization. If you are interested in joining our volunteer team, please contact us.
