Many of you know I come from a family of animal lovers. Loving dogs in particular is embedded in my DNA.
A year after our sweet rescue, Freckles, passed away I started looking for a way to be involved with animals. At first I was hesitant to pursue animal rescue because I was concerned I would take each one home. Then, I came across a truly special organization, Muddy Paws Rescue and was overcome by the opportunities to better the lives of neglected dogs.
What makes this pack of advocates and volunteers so special is we’re doing everything we can to remove “unwanted” dogs from kill shelters and find them loving homes forever. In doing so, all our rescues are safely transported from their shelter of origin to us in NYC. Which leads me to my favorite thing about Muddy Paws. We are 100% foster based. Yup! None of our pups are in a shelter again.
Additionally, before being available for adoption, ALL receive FULL veterinary care and professional behavioral support (if deemed necessary).
Since being founded in 2016, Muddy Paws has rescued 2,500 dogs. As you can imagine the costs do add up — from several hundred to several thousand dollars PER DOG!
Our ultimate vision is a world encouraging of animal adoption. We want the process to be positive and stress-free. In an effort to deliver exactly this, we strive to increase turnover and avoid raising our adoption costs. That’s where YOU come in. Kindly consider a donation. I give you my word, ANY amount will make such a difference.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION!
