Paw Prints in the Sand Animal Rescue is an all-animal, foster-based animal welfare organization with a mission to give at-risk animals a second chance at life by providing medical care, behavior training, and loving forever homes.

 

Since we began in 2013, we have rescued almost 500 homeless and unwanted animals and provided a safe haven to those who needed us most.

OUR MISSION

To give at-risk animals a second chance at life by providing medical care, training, and loving forever homes.

Our Vision

Paw Prints in the Sand believes in a world where any animal who needs a loving home gets one. Our goal is to rescue, rehabilitate and find safe, loving homes for 1,000 animals by 2025.

EVERY YEAR, AN ESTIMATED 1.5 MILLION COMPANION ANIMALS ARE EUTHANIZED IN OUR NATION’S SHELTER SYSTEM. WE AIM TO DRAMATICALLY REDUCE THAT NUMBER.

Paw Prints in the Sand is committed to being a leading animal welfare organization, beyond saving animals in need and placing them in loving homes. We also strive to bring transformation and education in the areas of shelter reform, shelter overcrowding, needless euthanasia, Breed Specific Legislation, spaying and neutering, and responsible pet ownership.
