Precious Paws Rescue is a non-profit, all-breed dog rescue based in Barrie, Ontario. They are dedicated to saving the lives of homeless pets by rescuing from pounds and shelters across North America. Our dogs come to us from situations where they are at risk of euthanasia – most often due to lack of space in a pound or shelter.
While in rescue, dogs do not stay in a shelter environment, but rather in private foster homes where they can receive all of the TLC that they so desperately need. This also gives the rescue a chance to properly assess the dogs in a home environment so that they can place them in the best possible “forever” home.
Most often the dogs they receive come to us with minor to major medical issues. Whether it be as simple as deworming for parasites or as costly as orthopedic surgery, Precious Paws Rescue does not give up on any animal simply due to medical needs. All of their dogs are fully vetted, including spayed/neutered and microchipped, prior to being placed in adoptive homes.

All of the animals that Precious Paws takes in are completely vetted prior to adoption. This includes up to date vaccinations, wellness bloodwork including heartworm test (for dogs), fecal test and deworming, spay/neuter and a microchip. Of course some animals do require additional vetting to prepare them for adoption and Precious Paws ensures that each animal receives whatever they require; be it dentistries, orthopedic surgery, etc..
In order to attempt to cover some of the costs that the rescue incurs for the care of our rescue animals, Precious Paws requires an adoption fee for every animal adopted.
