Growing up my mother instilled in me sympathy and a love for animals. She was always quick to take in a stray or step up and bring a new pet into the home when their owner no longer could take care of them. Due to this experience it seemed like a natural decision to find an animal rescue to partner with. We spent months searching local animal rescues, searching for an organization that we felt treated the animals and people with respect and heart.
The organization that we chose as our charity sponsor is PAWS4Thought Animal Rescue. According to their website, “PAWS4Thought Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-breed animal rescue organization. Most of what we do is rescue dogs from shelters when they are at risk of being euthanized, as well as abandoned, abused, and stray dogs in both the U.S. and Tijuana/Rosarito areas. We also rescue many dogs from owners who are forced to surrender them due to financial or personal hardships.”
We loved what Paws4Thought stood for and their willingness to accept different breeds and even cats. They not only rescue and rehome rescued animals, but they also offer education and population control services to those who need it. Their commitment to animals is something that stood out and is apparent in their website and in their actions.
“PAWS4Thought is committed to reducing the number of dogs who are at risk of being euthanized or are left hurt and/or abandoned each and every day. Our primary goal is to rescue and rehabilitate these dogs in loving foster homes until they are adopted into their permanent “fur-ever” homes. We also focus on educating the public by providing information on rescue procedures, and we conduct low cost and free spay/neuter events to those who need these services.”
We will be partnering with PAWS4Thought through our site; bringing you different ways that you can help. The organization is always looking for people to foster animals or volunteer at their many events. If you would be interested in opening your home as a foster or would like to volunteer your time you can click on the links.
PAWS4Thought’s ultimate goal is placing dogs in forever homes. What stood out to us was their primary goal of rescuing and rehabilitating the animals in loving foster homes before their adoption. This care and time before sending a dog on its way showed that the organization truly wanted the best for the animals in its care. On top of that they make the adoption process easy, making it simple to match the right people with the appropriate animal. If you would like to adopt one of their animals you can find them here, as well as the process for adoption.
The great thing about PAWS4Thought is that they are active around San Diego. PAWS4Thought participates in a number of adoption events in San Diego. Currently they have an upcoming adoption event this month in Pacific Beach. On Saturday, July 27thPAWS4Thought will be at Mossy Toyota’s 11thAnnual Dog Days of Summer event at Mossy Toyota in Pacific Beach. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking for a dog to find a pet from PAWS4Thought or any of the other organizations in attendance.
As a non-profit organization, PAWS4Thought is always looking for donations to help improve the lives of the animals they encounter. If you are able to please look to make a donation to PAWS4Thought so that they can continue their work of helping animals find homes.
