About Us


People Helping Paws Dog Rescue is a  rescue and pet food pantry located in Jefferson City, MO. We specialize in pulling bully breeds from kill shelters in our area.  We save at risk dogs that have medical issues preventing them from being adopted.  We are committed to them simply because they have NO ONE.  These dogs are at the shelter because they have been abandoned, lost, neglected, discarded or abused and many of them have no way out but rescue.  They are without family, love or representation.  We are their voice....their future.

People Helping Paws Dog Rescue does not accept owner surrenders.  We do not have the resources.  The dogs we rescue have no one to care for them or make decisions on their behalf.  As the owner of a dog, only you can make the right choices for the health, safety and wellness of the dog for which you are responsible.  Please consider all options for your pet.


Adoptable Dogs

Our adoption fee is $175.00 for dogs. This includes spayed/neutered, vaccinated and heart worm tested as appropriate for age and micro-chipped. Almost all of our dogs require a fenced yard. This is for their safety. All dogs are INSIDE only pets. We do not adopt dogs that will be living outside on a chain, in a fenced yard or in an outdoor kennel. Our dogs are all kennel and house trained for this very reason. 

**Please note: We reserves the right to do home visits and vet checks on all dogs adopted through our organization. Thank you for considering a rescue dog!

  Sweet Beau was a frequent flyer at the local facility in his town.  He was not treated well in his home so we think he was out looking for his "real" family.  He has some scars and his skin is healing nicely but none of that prevents him from loving everything and everyone.  He is a real gentleman and loves to snuggle.  He is currently in boarding and is so lonely.  Please consider giving him a real home before the holidays.  We promise....this dog is the real deal!

 Abandoned and left to die with a family of her own, Twiggy managed the best she could.  When rescued, she only had 1 pup with her.  A tiny 3 week old baby.  Twiggy was not able to feed her any longer as her milk had all dried up.  They were found just in time.  They are both in a foster home while Twiggy goes through heartworm treatment.


Discarded like trash after not being able to have puppies.....this sweet girl was so sick with infec

Discarded like trash after not being able to produce any more puppies.  Malnourished, heartworm positive and full of infection.  She had an emergency spay to save her life.  She is resting comfortably in a foster home while waiting to start her treatment.  She LOVES everyone and everything.  Now all she needs is a family to call her own.
