OUR ADOPTABLE DOGS



Augustus (Auggie) is a very tiny but FULL of energy 3-month-old wiggly boy!!! He will make you laugh!!! as he is a little clown… and can entertain himself with a toy as well as everybody around him!!! Augustus loves to play with other playful pups and has no fears!!! We would love for him to go to a home with another playful furry pal!



Zenita was rescued from a high kill Shelter and considering the neglect of her fur…We believe she had a rough first 4 Y of life…She is still quite shy at first but as soon as she knows you a little…She will attach herself to you and demand attention and love…She had to go through a pretty drastic shaving but her fur will grow back fast and pretty!!


Mister Harry was rescued from a High Kill Shelter…He is very sweet but still very puppy like at about 1 1/2 years old and has all the energy of his Jack Russell’s Breed!!!
He needs a very active home that keeps working on funny boy’s training!!


Coco was dumped by her owner of 11 years at a high kill Shelter with a terribly dirty and matted fur as well as terrible teeth/mouth condition. She obviously suffered from neglect…The girl got some major TLC and dental care and is now feeling so much better…She is otherwise healthy with no heart or joint problem…She is also very sweet and well mannered…She would love a calm, comfy home where she is will be finally spoiled!!



If you are looking for a cute, bonded pair …Here you go!!! Daddy Clancey (long hair) is about 3 years old and his son, Coltrane about 1 1/2 years old…The 2 boys are very bonded!! Coltrane is a little shyer than his daddy, but both will love to go with you on walks!!! They are Cheweenie Mix.
Zara (Mom) and Shilo (Son) are Ottherhound mix and were kept in a backyard without much of human contact. They have been working with a trainer and are now very affectionate but still pretty shy. They are still very insecure on a leash but will do great with a large backyard! Zara is about 5 and Shilo about 3.



The “Pandemic” Dogs

At 4 Paws Kiddo Rescue, we went through the ordeal of the pandemic by keeping doing what we live for day after day, Ed and I saving dog’s lives.  We kept our ethics and protocol during that crazy time when people would send blunt e-mails wanting “that dog NOW!!” because “I’m bored stuck at home” We totally resisted that easy way of “placing” lots of kiddos into homes…. Unfortunately, we have now reached the “Dump Your Pandemic Dog” situation – because people have resumed their former lives and don’t need the entertainment of a pooch. We are proud to say that our strict screening of people’s motivation worked!  We have No Returns! However, we are dealing with a crazy number of abandoned, owner surrendered dogs. All the pups purchased on Craigslist from Backyard breeders are filling up the Shelters…and some are being forced start euthanizing their rescues again! Honestly, we do have moments when we feel quite defeated, but we keep going as every one of the kiddos lives we save and nurture are essential to us at 4 Paws Kiddo Rescue. Please, consider donating towards their veterinary care as we are swamped!!!

About Us


What Makes Us Care About Dogs?


4 Paws Kiddo Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all-breed, no-kill dog rescue organization. We rescue dogs from shelters at risk of being euthanized, as well as abandoned, abused, and stray dogs. We also rescue many dogs from owners who are forced to surrender their dogs due to financial or personal issues. 4 Paws Kiddo Rescue is dedicated to reducing the number of dogs that are euthanized in our shelters each and every day. Our primary goal is to rescue and rehabilitate these dogs in loving foster homes until they are adopted into their permanent homes. In our years of saving dogs we have gained the reputation of helping and rescuing dogs that are difficult and expensive to help. Our rescue efforts are not limited by how sick a dog in need might be. If a dog needs us, we’ll be there! Hopefully you will help us help these dogs by donating as generously as you possibly can.
