About Operation Paws for Homes:
Operation Paws for Homes is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization devoted to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of dogs who have overcome great odds and deserve wonderful, caring forever homes. These dogs are rescued from overcrowded high kill shelters in the southern region of the United States, primarily shelters in South and North Carolina, as well as Virginia. We partner with local shelters as needed. We also rescue a few international dogs partnering with shelters and rescues in India and Turks & Caicos who rescue dogs from dangerous and deplorable conditions.
About Our Adoptions:
Our organization provides pet adoption services to families located in Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, Southern Pennsylvania and neighboring states. We believe in responsible adoptions and strive to work with each adopter to find a good match for their home and lifestyle. Our adoption process includes completion of an application, a review of reference checks, vet checks, an interview and a personal "meet and greet" where the family can meet and interact with their potential new four-legged family member. Throughout this process, we work to ensure each family and dog are the right fit for each other. https://ophrescue.org/adopt
We are fortunate to have some wonderful and active volunteers who help OPH find forever homes for over 1,000 dogs a year. In addition to adoptions, volunteers carry out education and outreach events throughout the area, and conduct donation drives for our partner shelters in the south.
Our goal is to offer a second chance to dogs abandoned in shelters and out of time. Each year we rescue hundreds of wonderful dogs. We work hard to unite them with forever families who will give them the life and love they deserve. These dogs are saved only because of the dedication of our incredible adopters, fosters, donors, and volunteers. events AT ophrescue.org
