About Soft Paws:
Soft Paws Rescue focuses on connecting homeless, stray, and abused pets with their perfect forever home.
We take in dogs from kill lists at various shelters, as well as surrenders from owners who can no longer care for their pet.
Our goal is to fit each pet with the perfect foster home until they find their permanent home.
We have Nonprofit Tax Exempt Status,
as an established 501c3 organization.
