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.

OLLIE’S ACCUSED KILLER

Thursday 9/20/18 at the Broward County Courthouse is a “Calendar Call”.

It is where the Judge and attorneys meet to compare notes and determine the next step. 

It is very possible the defendant will not be present and we are advised depositions have not yet begun.

The process will likely take less than 10 minutes and the need for an audience would not affect anything.

 

When the actual court date is determined, it will be a matter of public record:  https://www.browardclerk.org/ (under case search).

UPCOMING EVENTS!!!!!


We try to have adoption events every weekend.  For details please go to our events page.   View ALL upcoming events HERE

Winston's Story...

 

FOSTER HOME NEEDED URGENTLY~~

 

MEET WINSTON ==

FOSTER HOME NEEDED - ASAP!

Five days ago, Michelle, a Good Sam, rescued a dog (whom she has named WINSTON) from a vacant construction yard – no food, water, bowls OR shelter. No clue how long he had been there. He was lethargic, emaciated, dehydrated and unable to walk – a hot mess.

She carried the 30 lb. dog out of there and took him to a vet – who advised her to take him to a vet of their recommendation, who provided overnight care. One night and $700 later, she contacted Grateful Paws–

I met her at VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital – where we admitted the dog to the care of Drs. Patterson & Shapiro. Today is day #3 – Winston is now eating, (healthy appetite), still a little wobbly but is on his own 4 legs WALKING – and doing so much better. Doc Shapiro does not see a reason to keep him at the hospital any longer, so NOW, we needs a foster home!

We know nothing about him except he is a brindle lab mix - weighing 30 lbs. who should probably weigh 40+. He’s calm, very docile – maybe 5-6 years old. We do not know about cats or kids –

We will provide everything you need – and be responsible for all food, meds and supplies.

So talk to me. We want to get him out of these as soon as we can. Email: jan@gratefulpaws.org - 954-462-8840 h or

UPDATED

Winston was abandoned in a vacant construction lot - no food, water, bowls OR shelter. No clue how long he had been there. He was lethargic, emaciated, dehydrated and unable to walk. But after some great Vet care, Winston is eating, walking on his own - and doing GREAT!  

He’s calm, docile – maybe 10+ years old. Dog friendly.  Likes his naps.  His eyesight and hearing are not 100% but he gets around just fine - even up and down the back steps!  We do not know about cats or kids – and we've not heard him bark!  

We will provide everything you need – and be responsible for all food, meds and supplies.

So talk to me. Email: jan@gratefulpaws.org - 954-462-8840 h -954-579-3753 c

NOTE: Adoption/rehoming fees are applied towards the vet bill: exam, blood tests, vaccinations, fecal, worming, spay/neuter, dental if necessary, and a microchip. There is rarely anything left over, but if that happens, the monies get applied to the next or previous pet - who may have had to have an x-ray, be groomed or have a dental.


Remember, if you foster for us, we provide EVERYTHING; crate, food, HW and flea/tick meds, etc. It also counts toward school credits and community service hours. He's a sweet dog who needs a 2nd chance. If interested, please contact Grateful Paws @ info@gratefulpaws.org or call 954-462-8840

WOW - 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.
