Founded in 2019 and transitioning to an official 501c(3) non-profit in October 2020, Love & Paws Rescue is on a mission to save the most at-risk dogs in Texas. We are 100% run by volunteers and 100% funded by donations. Our volunteers work tirelessly to not only save lives, but change them for the better. Love & Paws Rescue has anywhere from 5 to 45 dogs at a time. We focus on making sure every dog is ready for a forever home in terms of sociability, health, and overall adoptability. We take all the time needed to rehabilitate the dogs in our care and get them the best vet care to ensure that they are healthy. We treat our foster dogs as the deserving animals that we know they are and it shows in their transformations. Every dog that comes through our doors is forever a part of the Love & Paws family.
Our NTX Giving Day goal is $10,000 to continue supporting the dogs currently with our organization.
Gertie has been with us for approximately two months and would love your help today! A purebred English Bulldog, she was surrendered to her vet’s office when the ‘owner’ realized she couldn’t breed Gertie due to being a genetic mess. Although dumped at no fault of her own, Gertie avoided a life of constant breeding to turn a profit which was a blessing in disguise for her! She is in need of two significant surgeries to help improve her quality of life. The first involves reconstructing her nasal passages and removing a significant skin flap to help improve her breathing. The second surgery will address her elongated palate to help her breathing and swallowing issues. These issues are due to poor breeding, but we won't let Gertie suffer because of it. Will you help us improve Gertie’s quality of life on North Texas Giving Day?

Love & Paws Rescue is a small foster based dog rescue in Fort Worth, Texas. Our mission is to save the most at-risk dogs in Texas. We take in strays, owner surrenders, and also pull from shelters with high euthanasia rates and low communtiy support. We focus on the dogs that need it most, take all the time they need to be rehabilitated, and ensure they get all medical care they require to be healthy.
Love and Paws Rescue believes in diversity and inclusivity in all aspects of our work and service. A broad lens of equity and diversity has a positive impact on the animals in our care, and helps us better serve clients, volunteers, and our entire community. We believe that no one should be judged on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability or level of income, just as no dog should be judged based on their breed or background. We believe in collaboration with other organizations and institutions within the community to help achieve the equity to which all humans and animals are entitled. Love and Paws Rescue is not just about compassion for animals- it's about who we are at the core and standing up for what is right for all involved.
