Review for Indiana Petite Paws Rescue Angels, Inc., Elida, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We adopted a mill rescue from Petite Paws. Wolfgang (who bore a striking resemblance to Mozart) spent 10 years in a cage in a puppy mill. We later adopted Daizy Maizy and Brady from them. Around the same time we started volunteering with them. Later, we began fostering rescues through them. Two of our fosters socialized very well and were adopted. The other foster we decided to keep. He's a work in progress. The group cares VERY much about the rescued dogs, and they have a very thorough application process. They seem to do this to protect the dogs and keep them from ending up in another bad situation. Because their application process is so thorough, they have very few returns; an average of about one per YEAR! I am proud to help them help the small rescued dogs.

Role:  Volunteer & Fostered and socialized rescued dogs. Helped raise awareness of the group.

Review for Indiana Petite Paws Rescue Angels, Inc., Elida, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have always lived with dogs. We have had, counting our current foster, 14 dogs in 37 years. Some we got from shelters. Some we got from family members. Some we got from family breeders, where you could meet the parents in a household setting. We had two Silky Terriers for about 15 years. We adopted a rescue Yorkie through another organization. Since then, we have adopted 3 Yorkies through IPPRA. Two of our adopted dogs are still with us. We formalized our affiliation with IPPRA, volunteering, and now fostering the cutest little Chihuahua. IPPRA closely scrutinizes applicants to ensure the dogs go to an excellent home, where they will be loved and well cared for. I thought it was a little "over the top" with our first adoption application, but now I understand. Their primary concern is protecting the pups. I couldn't agree more!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their dedication to protecting the pups!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

just plain wonderful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save all the dogs, so none would ever have to be "put down".

Ways to make it better...

IPPRA had sufficient funding to help more dogs.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding, funding, and funding (not necessarily in that order).

One thing I'd also say is that...

they have an unbelievable drive to save the pups!
