We're an all foster home rescue devoted to finding suitable permanent homes for our animals and to help eliminate animal overpopulation through spay and neuter programs.  4 Paws 4 Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit rescue organization.

Our Mission

4 Paws 4 Rescue was founded on a commitment to serve both animals and human parents by pairing pets from all breeds and ages with the perfect forever family.


Our passionate team of fosters, volunteers and supporters devote their time and homes to ensure our pets receive the love and attention they deserve as they wait to be adopted. 4 Paws 4 Rescue is determined to find a pet that is the perfect fit for your family.

Available Pets

4 Paws 4 Rescue is an all-foster rescue, meaning all animals are located in our homes. This allows us to fully evaluate their needs, as well as work with them on socializing and proper manners.


We have more dogs and cats in rescue than are currently listed as "available." If you don’t currently see a match for your home, follow us on Facebook or fill out an application, and tell us what type of companion you desire.

Please see the Adoption FAQs for answers to common questions regarding fees, the adoption process and where to see our available pets. 


There is no obligation and someone will be in contact to let you know if we have a pet for you to consider that is not currently listed on our website.

How to Help

There are few things that equal the joy and satisfaction you get when helping those who cannot speak for themselves.


We have a saying in Rescue:

If you can’t adopt… foster. If you can’t foster… donate.

If you can’t donate… educate and share.


Everyone can do something to help animals in need. What will you do?
