About Us


People Helping Paws is in need of foster homes! If you would like to foster one of our adoptable pets please email us at peoplehelpingpaws@yahoo.com. We do ask that a home visit be set up prior to foster placement to ensure the safety of the animal and the foster home. Thank you!

Adopting A Friend

  • The adoption donation is $150 per dog and $50 per cat and includes: spay/neuter, vaccinations, deworming, (and in certain cases) microchipping. Some animals may have a higher adoption donation based on their medical needs.
  • Send an email inquiry of the pet you are most interested in, with their name in the subject line, and we will send you a copy of our adoption application.
  • You can submit the adoption application via email to peoplehelpingpaws@yahoo.com
  • After the application has been submitted and reviewed a home visit and vet check will need to be done to ensure a perfect fit for both you and the pet.
  • After the home visit you will be contacted within a week as to the status of the pending adoption.
***We do NOT ship our animals.  If you are out of state and wish to adopt be prepared to drive to Missouri, meet your potential rescue dog/cat and enjoy the road trip home with them.

Thank you so much for looking at these wonderful pets! They deserve the best homes possible and we are committed to finding them!

Who We Are

Come Visit Us

We do not have a specific location as we all work out of our homes and all of our adoptable pets are in foster homes.

If you would like to foster one of our adoptable pets please contact us and we will set up a home visit!
