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 unless it is a medical or abuse situation. 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.
Our adoption fee is $225.00 up to 1 year, $200.00 for 1 to 5 yrs old and $175.00 for 5 yrs and older This includes spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heart worm tested as appropriate for age. flea/tick preventative, heart worm preventative 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!
Nala-Pit Bull, Female, 9 years old fully vetted. Loves kids and other dogs. NO CATS. She came to us as an abuse case. Tied to an old freezer her whole life to have litter after litter with no affection ever shown to her. She has gone through heart worm treatment over a year ago and is doing great. She is in a foster home with Daisey (her best friend and another dog). She is a calm gentle soul but still loves to play. She would thrive in a home with Daisey if possible and she adores kids. Fenced yard required.
Daisey-Lab Mix, Female, 9 months old fully vetted. Loves kids and other dogs. Not cat tested She came to us after a good Samaritan discovered her. Her 2 siblings were rescued by us a month early but she was no where in sight then. She was only 11 weeks old barely surviving and her neck was covered in tumors. She has has them surgically removed several months ago and is doing great. She is in a foster home with her best friend Nala and she adores kids! She is very shy of new people and places which is to be expected but in the right home and possibly adopted with Nala, she would thrive! Fenced yard required.
Aspen-Great Dane, Female, 9 months old fully vetted. Loves kids and other dogs. Not cat tested. She came to us as an abuse case with a old broken leg injury. It can not be fixed but she is not in pain and runs and plays like a normal puppy. She is still a little leary of men and sudden movements or loud noises but in the right home with another dog she would be amazing. Fenced yard required.
Sunny-Foxhound mix, Female, 3 years old fully vetted. Loves kids and to run. She has lived with other dogs and I think would benefit from another dog to run and play with. Poor girl has been bounced around a lot and deserves a family to call her own. Sunny needs an active home. As we said....she LOVES TO RUN! She is extremely smart and would benefit from an active family! Fenced yard required.
Phoebe-Pit Bull, Female, 1 year old fully vetted. Loves kids and other dogs. NO CATS. Phoebe was pulled from a kill shelter out of state where pit bulls really don't stand a chance. This sweet girl loves everything and everyone. She just wants to be petted and pampered. She lives with 2 other male pitties and a little boy. She is an amazing dog! Fenced yard required.
