Our Featured Pet.. Stormy Storm is a 7 month old puppy that is thought to be Border Collie/Aussis poss lab mix that has been with us awhile through no fault of her own. She came to us from a high kill shelter at 6-7 weeks old and was very sick from day one. Storm is finally ready to leave our home as our foster girl and into a home of her own. She came to us with intestinal issues and a series of infections, one right after another, spent days on an IV, praying she didn't have distemper. Tests came back negative, but still a little under the weather. Then once she was feeling better, a fluke accident broke her jaw and it had to be wired. With all of that happening, you still would nver know she was sick or injured, as she is a very care-free,fearless, puppy determined to be friends with all and a cuddle bug to everyone that will sit with her. She plays hard and loves even harder. Since the wire needs to be taken from her jaw this week, she will also be spayed. brought current on vaccines, and microchipped, Then finally ready for a home of her own. Stormy will make a wonderful companion for another dog or loyal family companion. She will probably be a medium sized dog. A fenced yard and a commitment to take her to puppy classes are both required. for adoption consideration of our Stormy, an application or more information, please contact

Who We Are

In the beginning, There were just two of us. We had been involved with Rescue, volunteering, fostering and transporting for various groups. While we continued to do this, there was such an incredible need in our own local community for rescue. Though we were just a couple of people, we could make a difference one dog at a time. We work closely with animal control, owner surrender situations, and high kill shelters. Over time, our little rescue has grown. We have successfully placed many homeless orphans into their forever homes and continue to receive many Success stories. Since we do not have a shelter, our orphans are in foster care in the homes of our volunteers. They live with our own families, our own dogs and in some cases cats. It allows us to properly evaluate them on a daily basis and determine what type of home they need to flourish and succeed. We are in the process of becoming a 501C3, not for profit organization. All we are able to accomplish, is done from generous donations and fundraisers. 100% of all funds go directly into the care of our orphans. Providing them food, medical treatment and sending them home with a couple of things to make their transition easier. Every orphan goes home with their blanket or dogbed, some food, a bowl, and a couple of toys.

Adopting a friend

So you've seen an orphan that you may be interested in..What's next? First, contact us at Causeforpawsrescue@gmail,com and you'll be sent an application. There is a review of the appliction, Vet refereneces are checked and in some cases, personal references are also checked. Then there is usually phone contact, where you have an initial phone conversation with the foster folks Since it is our main goal, NOT to set a family or a dog up for failure, a home visit is required, it is usually pre-arranged with the foster at that time, to bring our orphan to your home to see if it is a good fit. If distance is an issue, a home visit may be done by another volunteer or possibly another rescue closer to you. This is merely a time for questions and answers and a visit, NOT an inspection of your home. Please note: In the event you have already had a home visit completed by another rescue, and can provide a copy, we will certainly honor that home visit and another will not be required. Once an applicant meets with our foster folks and orphan, and it's determined this is a good match, we complete the contract and payment is made via check or cash. You are then given a one-week conditional trial-period to return our dog if this is not working out. -+NO refunds will be given after that time frame.. Please note, filling out an application does NOT guarantee an adoption. We have thoroughly evaluated our orphans that are in our care and try very hard to match the right pet to the right family and situation. We reserve the right not to adopt. Since we do not have a shelter, all visits must be pre-arranged with the foster family that has our orphan in their care. Cause For Paws
