Every day, more than 9,000 pets are killed in America’s shelters – but if we work together, we can develop innovative programs in our community and across the country that will drastically decrease this number.
In our past 17 years we have rescued and adopted over 8,000 dogs. While we are very proud of having helped so many dogs, we recognize that the problem originates before the dogs ever enter a shelter. As a result, we launched a unique, new initiative earlier this year, Paws Project, to help address the problem at its roots.
It was originally our goal to spay and neuter no less than 120 pets each year, but in 2019 we increased that goal to 150. Still, this means we have limited spots available, so if you live in Clarkston or a nearby community and need help with the cost of spaying/neutering your pet, please fill out the form below and will will do our best to get back to you within 48 hours.
Paws Project pays the majority of the cost to spay and neuter pets in in our area where the owner needs financial assistance, which of course means less animals are unintentionally bred. Starting in 2017, we added to the program by also offering to have these dogs vaccinated for rabies and distemper/parvo and lepto (if appropriate), as well as a deworming. Parvo is a deadly disease and we see way too much of it in rescue. Getting more of the dogs in our community vaccinated against this disease means less dogs will contract it and spread it. We are also sometimes able to provide food (by request).
**We are currently booked. Please check back at a later date as we will put the form back on this site when we have spots open.
