Claws and Paws Rescue

Adoption policy

Claws and Paws Rescue is a 501(c)(3) No-kill Foster Based Rescue founded in August of 2015. Inspired by a little kitten named Frog who was born with backwards knees; he was rescued from the county shelter by his foster mom when he was just a few weeks old. Shortly after his rescue he was taken to a local vet who suggested he be euthanized, because his legs could not be fixed. However, lucky for him, his foster mom did not agree and refused to have him euthanized. Telling the vet she just wasn’t ready.\xa0 Then she took him for a 2nd opinion to another vet who specialized in orthopedic veterinary cases.\xa0 Well, needless to say the 2nd vet said, Yes, his legs cannot be FIXED. However he saw no reason to euthanize him. As long as Frog is able to get around and he is happy there is no reason to kill him. Thank goodness his foster mom was stubborn and refused to give up on him and has made him a permanent part of her family. He is now a happy and healthy boy, who does not let his legs slow him down one bit. To Date Claws and Paws has rescued over 1400 animals.
