Pick Your Paw Animal Resue
Pick Your Paw Animal Rescue is a small, grass
roots network of 10 to 12 animal lovers working together to
rehabilitate 6 to 10 rescued dogs at a time, until that rescue is
ready for placement as a companion animal. We pull dogs from both
local kill-shelters, as well as pulling from the New York City
Animal Care and Control’s nightly “To Be Destroyed List”, and
Miami-Dade Animal Services to be destroyed list as well. We are
committed to providing spay/neuter, all appropriate medical
treatment, foster homes/kenneling, training, socializing, and
creating behavioral improvement plans for every dog who enters
Pick Your Paw Animal Rescue. Pick Your Paw makes a lifetime
commitment to each dog to help them become stable pets and to
match them to their best forever home. Education of the adopter
and general public are vital components of our program as we work
to end the ease with which people give up on, and ‘throw away’
their family pets.
Each dog that exits a
shelter, a surrendering home, or a transport vehicle hears the
same whispered words, “You are safe. You will not be hurt again.
You will find your home, I promise you.”
In every walk, play date, CGC class, adoption
event or adopter interview, this promise is made good.
dogs are placed in foster homes, or boarded at a nearby kennel/day
care. Dogs are fully vetted, providing the same level of
veterinary care for our rescue dogs that we provide to our own
family pets. We consult with animal behaviorists to address issues
that dogs enters our program with in order to make them more
highly adoptable. Dogs have attended and graduated from Canine
Good Citizen classes. All applicants are carefully screened,
including a comprehensive reference check (veterinarian and
personal references), multiple phone interviews, and home checks.
Follow up check and calls continue past the adoption. We provide
support, advice, and continued contact for each adopting family.
Educating the public, one dog at a time, to create a different
viewpoint of the pit bull terrier is also an integral part of our
