Review for Helping Paws Pet Rescue Inc, Ashland, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

For those who are not yet familiar with Helping PAWS, here is a short version of its' mission statement.

Helping PAWS Pet Rescue, Inc. was founded for the sole purpose of helping to stop the suffering of companion animals caused by homelessness, overpopulation, and mistreatment. The goal of the organization is that no adoptable companion animal ever be euthanized for lack of medical care and a good home. This goal is not limited to dogs and cats, but extends equally to horses, rabbits, birds and other domestic species. Homeless and unwanted animals are offered not just a “humane” alternative, but are provided in each case the best possible process that would result in each individual pet finding its forever-home. This organization's mission is unique in that it includes not only young, healthy homeless pets, but also owner surrenders and individuals with medical needs that would cause them to be rejected by or euthanized by other organizations.
As a veterinarian who has, for 26 years, refused to perform "euthanasias of convenience", this mission is near and dear to my heart. I will happily continue to provide services and to volunteer for this organization for years to come!
