As a special incentive this month of February we are adding a year of Heartgard (heartworm prevention) to our long-term adoptables!

Our first long term dog is sweet girl Elsa. Elsa came into rescue just over a year ago after being found as a stray in the Timberland, Porter neighborhood. This sweet girl is fully vetted, spayed, heartworm negative and UTD with vaccines. We have a wonderful foster that is working hard to help dogs in that neighborhood, but we need to find the ones already rescued homes so we can help more.

We would also love to find homes for all our long-term dogs, the benefit to you is these dogs have been in loving foster homes for over a year and know the good life. Elsa is potty trained, gets along well with other dogs, walks well on a leash, is friendly and loving and an overall great dog.

The perfect home for Elsa would be an active family, a fully fenced yard and a young dog her age as a playmate. Elsa would also make a great running/hiking/walking partner.

Elsa: D2023018

Age: 2 years

Weight: 46 lbs

Active Paws Making a Difference

Active Paws Rescue first opened our "doors" in August of 2023.  We have been busy!  We brought 66 dogs and puppies into our program in those first five months.  We also collaborated with other local rescue groups to help some families care for strays that they took in from the community.  We hope to be able to do even more in 2024!

The thing that makes rescue worth all the work, is to see formerly homeless, unloved dogs become cherished family members. The smiles on the faces of the people and the pups is priceless! To see some of our happy endings, click here!
