Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Our mission is to rescue unwanted dogs and cats that are in shelters and pounds located throughout Idaho. Our non-profit rescue places each animal into our foster home program while we search for forever homes for them. We supply all vet care, food, toys, bedding; really anything they need while in our care. We focus on those animals that are considered “hard to adopt” for various reasons; like kennel stress, having a black coat, being over 8 years old, etc. Often a foster home rather than a shelter environment helps give many of these animals a second chance at the life they deserve! We relay on community donations and individuals willing to be foster care givers in order to continue our work.

I was a foster parent for dogs for this rescue and still help in home checks and some babysitting. They are very devoted to getting animals into good homes

It is almost time to celebrate our year 2 with our Heidi. We were thankful when we brought her home Thanksgiving Day. She has brought us great joy, laughter and much unconditional love. She loves her walks and naps on our laps. Thank you Cindy for puppy sitting and Elizabeth for fostering her family. She is perfect in our family.

Fuzzy Pawz is a great group of volunteers who work hard to help the lives of homeless pets in our area. I love fostering for the group. I am supported through the entire processes. I would highly recommend volunteering with the group and of course adopting!

We have worked with Fuzzy Pawz both as an adoptee and as a foster. This is a great organization that really goes above and beyond to help animals find homes.

I am a volunteer foster parent with Fuzzy Pawz Rescue. I enjoy fostering senior and special needs dogs. Fuzzy Pawz is great to work with. They make sure I have all the resources needed to ensure my foster dog is healthy and will thrive while in my home. I love when adopters follow up and let me know how wonderful my former foster dog is doing.

Great group of volunteers who go above and beyond for the animals!
