Did you know that Paddy's Paws doesn't keep adoption fees for the dogs we adopt out, but that we make sure to be responsible for all their vet care once they are in our program? It's true! We rely solely on donations to help with our medical bills and send all adoption fees back to Houston to aid in their rescue work!
The vet care our rescues receive is always top of line, and we wouldn't have it any other way! But...this month alone, Paddy's Paws has nearly $6,000 in vet bills...and we could use a little help!
If you're able to make a donation, no matter the size, we would be so thankful! Please help us, help them!

Zoe and Zibby

We would love for Zoe and Zibby to find their forever homes! They arrive in Wisconsin this Sunday and do not have any approved adopters meeting them. These sweet girls came from the Brenham Animal Shelter in Texas. They were there for about four weeks until they were rescued. They are playful pups who enjoy playing with their toys. We anticipate that these girls will get quite big when they are full-grown. They are very outgoing and love other dogs and people. They will be four months at their time of travel and already weigh 25 pounds. They are lab/great pyrenees mixes.

April needs our help in finding a forever home in Wisconsin where she can live out her golden years. She is a 9 year old purebred Weimaraner who is losing her home. Her previous owner had a stroke and is no longer able to care for her. April is very obedient, housetrained, and good around cats, kids, and other dogs. She would love nothing more than a person, or family, to be loyal and dedicated to...and she even can bring you the paper!

We've been sharing a lot of puppies available for adoption lately, but now we have a special senior girl who needs your help. Please share her story so she can have a happy-ever-after. Paddy's Paws was contacted about this sweet girl, who is a local owner surrender. For the past couple of years she had been living in a garage kennel with very little interaction or attention. She was not allowed in the house and was basically ignored. Thankfully, a neighbor intervened and offered to temporarily take Lacie until she could find a forever home where she would be appreciated. She contacted Paddy's Paws to help her. When the neighbor went to officially pick up Lacie, she discovered that a new puppy had already been bought by this family. After being disappointed by her previous humans, Lacie deserves more from life, especially as she is a senior girl who is 10-12 years. We would love for Lacie to have a chance to live out her golden years with a wonderful family...as an indoor dog!
Lacie does well with other dogs and cats, but pays no attention to them. She had experience with both in her temporary foster home after being saved from the garage situation. She also doesn't show an interest in toys but it is probably due to the fact of never having any or no one to play with. She really seeks out the attention and love from any human who will give it to her. Lacie is very underweight (only 42lbs) and gobbles down her food as she was probably unsure when she would get her next meal in her previous situation. She is not food aggressive at all and will let you take items away from her. Her neighbor who saved her said Lacie is genuinely the sweetest dog you will ever meet and just wants love, attention, and human contact. She loves to go on car rides and does well on walks!

Paddy's Paws at Fort Farmer's Market

This Saturday, Paddy's Paws will be making their second appearance at the Fort Atkinson Farmer's Market! 

At least sixteen of our foster dogs are planning to make an appearance at different times throughout the market (weather pending AND if they have not been adopted by Saturday). Please note our foster line-up can also change last minute. 

We would love for you to come by our booth and say hi, learn more about our organization, or make a donation to help homeless dogs. For a $5 donation, we have our newly released Paddy's Paws window stickers! We may be selling a few other donated items to earn money to pay for our vet bills too.

Our booth is usually towards the end of the market area set-up.

*Please note that this is not an adoption event, but rather an opportunity for the general public to interact with some of our foster dogs. Approved adopters can email us at paddyspawswi@gmail.com to inquire about the status of a particular dog in foster care.
