Since 2010, Paws Across Borders Society has operated as a non-profit Society that takes in unwanted dogs, rehabilitates them, and finds them loving, forever homes. We take in dogs from high-kill shelters in the United States and Canada, owner surrenders, and dogs that would otherwise be chained out or in a pen for the rest of their lives. We take them into our home, socialize them with other dogs, cats, and people. They are taught some manners and given structure. Once they are deemed adoptable, they are placed into their new homes.
We are not a standard shelter where the dogs are in concrete runs and have limited human contact. The dogs are given freedom here and a chance to build their confidence and develop their personality. We require an application be completed prior to meeting any of our dogs. It takes 5 minutes and is found on the Adoption Process page. We live on a farm with lots of critters, so we show our dogs by appointment only.
Our society is able to care for the dogs because of generous donations from the public. We are in regular need of cash donations, good food, biscuits, warm blankets, and dog toys. We have taken plenty of money from our own pockets to care for our rescues... we do this for our love of dogs, not to profit from their “sale.” If you are interested in helping out, please check out How You Can Help.
