Welcome to Grateful Paws Dog & Cat Rescue

We are a small, but mighty, Not-For-Profit - 501(c)(3) - No-Kill dog and cat rescue organization in South Florida.  We are comprised solely of volunteers who love animals. We rescue stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered dogs and cats and work very hard to place them in loving homes.

 

We are comprised ENTIRELY of volunteers with full-time careers and families. We believe the best environment for a dog or cat is a loving home.  Acquiring and staffing a shelter becomes a tremendous overhead cost as we want 100% of our funds to go towards the rescue, care and adoption of our animals.  We depend on our Foster Families to care for our rescued animals until we can find their "Forever" Family.  We do the rescue stuff (which is our true passion) after work and on the weekends. So if your phone calls or emails are not answered by a live person right away --- it's probably because we are at work and will reply as soon as we get home.

Learn more about us.

We try to have adoption events every weekend.  For details please go to our events page.   View ALL upcoming events HERE
WOW - WHAT A DAY!
Grateful Paws held our 4th Annual Howl-o-ween Party at Central Bark Doggy Daycare today -- and WHAT A DAY!

Let me start by saying that CENTRAL BARK was a most gracious and generous host. And we would like to openly thank them for their generosity and the opportunity to have our event at their facility. We have tons of pictures but they haven't been downloaded as yet, so please STAY TUNED! And a special thank you to CHER (aka Debbie Knight) who put on quite a show!

Thanks again Central Bark for supporting Grateful Paws and allowing us an opportunity to raise some funds for the animals in our care. Chris, Lary & Kate -- you ROCK.
