Applying through other sites (i.e., Petfinder) will not work.  The following are our applications:Dog application: application: PAWS Rescue does our best to provide accurate and complete information about our adoptable animals.  Please note that we cannot make any guarantees about age or breed; we rely upon our rescue partners and their veterinarians to make those assessments.  We also cannot make any guarantees about housebreaking and animal temperament, as animals can behave differently through transition and in different environments.Our shelter partners provide a basic vet screening for each animal we rescue, which includes necessary vaccinations, deworming, microchipping, and spay/neuter (unless the animal is too young or otherwise deemed by the vet to not be a good candidate for surgery). Please note that this is not a comprehensive medical exam and as such, may not identify any and all medical issues, though our goal is to flag any obvious health issues through the basic vet screening.  We share all medical records with adopters and are completely transparent about any known issues prior to adoption finalization.  ABOUT DC PAWS RESCUEOur rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based dog and cat rescue in the DC area.  We rescue locally from Prince Georges County, MD, and from rural shelters in the south (presently Pickens County, Anderson County, and Greenville County in SC, and Raleigh County, WV).We partner with a local rescuer in Pickens County, SC, who saves adoptable cats and dogs from the three area shelters.  For the animals in this rural area, rescue is a critical lifeline, and often the only lifeline.  Our rescue partner not only works with DC PAWS to save as many dogs and cats as possible, but she has also established a successful spay/neuter program in the community to decrease the number of homeless and unwanted animals over the long term.FOSTER AN ANIMAL IN NEEDFosters make it possible for DC PAWS to save and care for homeless, neglected and abandoned animals!
