Our volunteers at Prairie Paws Rescue want to thank you for dropping by our site to take a look at the lovable animals that we have for adoption. We are dedicated to rescuing pets in bad situations. Most of the animals you see here have been saved from cruel or neglectful situations and often from death. Thanks to many kind-hearted foster parents, they are being well cared for until you can give them a special place in your home and heart.
If you see one of the fur-kids on our site that you would like to meet, please contact us, and we'll set up an appointment for a visit.

Nine Wheatland Dogs Saved, Ready to be Adopted!
From The Jamestown Sun: When Royce arrived in Jamestown, the black-and-white cocker spaniel mix had no idea how to wag his tail.
Royce is one of the nine dogs Prairie Paws Rescue took in from a group of more than 174-plus dogs rescued from a puppy mill in Wheatland, N.D. He and some of the others are learning so fast they could be adoptable as early as next week, after they are spayed or neutered.
When he first came to Linday Gray (pictured), Royce worried about stepping on grass and concrete, both unfamiliar surfaces to him, and he wouldn’t cross a threshold. He didn’t want to go outside, and he found baths and stairs to be deeply traumatic experiences.
The Wheatland dogs have good reason to be cautious about people. The dogs were seized from an apparent puppy mill July 10 by Cass County sheriff’s deputies, many neglected and undernourished, and others with fur so matted they couldn’t move at all. Their former owner, Darcy Smith, 51, of Wheatland, waived his rights to regain custody of the dogs during a court hearing last week, freeing them up to be legally adopted by other people.

The 17th Annual Penny Drive was held at Jamestown Middle School, which raised over $10,000 for three different organizations and to those in need. Prairie Paws Rescue was given over $3,000 in donations, thanks to the students and staff at Jamestown Middle School. Kaye John attended the ceremony with Prairie Paws dog, Howdy, to accept the generous donation. Thank you, Jamestown Middle School! We appreciate your donations and for your consideration to Prairie Paws!

Frankie the long haired Dachshund was rescued from an area pound. There are many dogs that never make it into loving families as there are not enough foster homes or room at shelters to keep all of them. Frankie came to Prairie Paws and met his forever family thru the website. Gracie had been watching his picture and knew that Frankie was meant to be her dog.
After the family went through the adoption process, Gracie and Frankie met and it was an instant attraction. Frankie acted like he had known the family forever. Frankie and Gracie are a great pair!

Request for Photos
Have you adopted a pet from Prairie Paws Rescue? We have had a successful year with over 160 adoptions. We are looking for "HAPPY TAILS" photos of the adopted pets. We would love to include your adopted pets' photos and any story you might have about them. Please email photo and information to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Foster Homes Needed
As many of you know, Prairie Paws Rescue has no facilities for housing pets. We depend upon foster homes to take in pets until permanent homes are found. Fostering an animal can be as short as overnight, or as long as several months. The animals are placed in foster homes where nurturing begins, and during that time their medical process is completed before being adopted. If you are interested in becoming a foster caretaker to a pet, please contact us.

Dear Prairie Paws Rescue,

After visiting your website and reading about your organization we strongly feel that Prairie Paws Rescue is responsible for not only saving countless dog's lives but also for improving the quality of life for many animals.

We are pleased to present Prairie Paws Rescue with our Dog Rescue & Relief Award.
We thank you for all the time and hard work your organization provides for dogs in need. We understand what a difficult task this can be and hope that this token of our appreciation will show you how much you really are valued in the hearts of all dog owners.
Thanks again for all that you do!

Prairie Paws Rescue Supports Our Troops
Whitney, Kaye John's daughter, was doing her part as a rescuer in Iraq as many rescue groups all over the USA were sending her food to feed the strays overseas on her off-duty hours. Now she helps with the rescue pets at Prairie Paws by helping drive animals during transports. She also helps foster some of the animals until permanent homes can be found.
Thank you, Whitney, for your service!!
