I fell in love with the 4 paws group. It amazed me to what lengths rescuers would go to save a single animal. I had the space, if not always the time, to help and even built a puppy room into our finished basement to continue helping as many dogs as possible. I also do it for my kids to show them the commitment and energy it takes to save them. I want them to grow up knowing how much a single person can make a difference. I want them to want to be that person.
Don’t take our word for it…
Hear what our foster
homes have to say:
What makes 4paws great is Sherri! I was impressed with her from the beginning and continue to admire her dedication, kindness and compassion she shows animals and those who foster with this organization!
I’ve fostered for other rescues that were not about the dogs…it was about the money and popularity, and drama! When I found 4 Paws and got to know Sherri, I felt like I was home. If it’s possible, her heart is just as big for her people as it is for her dogs. She has a heart of gold and surrounds herself with good people who respect her because she gives it. I couldn’t be more proud to be part of her rescue.
I foster because I want to make a difference. Saving these babies who can’t talk for themselves, protecting them, loving them, and preparing them for their new homes. What I love most about 4 Paws is that there is zero drama and it’s all about the pups and cats. Sherri, Jen, Robyn… you guys rock!
We are able to be positive role models for our son. He has learned compassion, patience, and love for animals that perhaps haven’t experienced it before. When asked one day if he wanted to go to the zoo as planned or rescue a dog 2 hours away, he eagerly wanted to rescue the dog.
We are here for each other for suggestions, transport to and from everything from vetting appointments to adoption events, are here to lend a hand and swap fosters when necessary and are always ready to take on a case of abuse, extreme medical care, hoarding cases, owner surrenders, shelter rescues and so much more. This family leads with their hearts and does the very best for all over 1000 rescue cases we’ve taken year over year. The village has been successful being there for each other, constantly building on the experience and life of a rescuer.
I started because I found a special needs pup and was searching for a rescue willing to take him. 4 paws did without even knowing what exactly was wrong with him. By the time he was vetted and adopted, I was hooked. I was hooked on the dogs, I was hooked on the amazing feeling I got knowing I saved him, and I was hooked on the volunteers of this great little underdog rescue and the amazing hearts that they all have. I was welcomed with open arms and immediately felt like I belonged in this crazy little family of volunteers.
