Who We Are

All 4 Paws Rescue, Inc. is an all-breed, no-kill animal rescue based in Chester Springs, PA that offers rescue and sanctuary to animals in need. All 4 Paws Rescue, Inc. is made up of volunteers and foster homes that care for and socialize our animals. Most of our animals have been rescued from "death row" from high-kill shelters and auctions and given a second chance at life. Our goal is to offer each and every one of these animals a safe, permanent and loving home. Please help us to give each of these animals the life they deserve..

WE NEED FOSTER HOMES!!! Obviously, the more foster homes we have, the more animals we can save. By being a foster home, you are literally helping to save a life and to give a pet a second chance at finding a family of its own. All 4 Paws Rescue, Inc. will pay for all rescue fees and veterinary care for your foster pet. We can provide you with anything you need (crate, food, toys, etc as available). As a foster home, you are responsible for the daily needs of the pet including walks and of course lots of love and attention! If you are interested in fostering for All 4 Paws Rescue, Inc., please complete our Foster Application which can be found on our website. If you have any questions feel free to email us at:


We do our best to keep the adoption process straight-forward and simple in an effort to get our available pets into a permenant, stable and loving home in a timely manner. You will be asked to fill out an adoption application giving All 4 Paws Rescue, Inc. information about yourself, your family and your experience with pets. You will need to provide a vet reference and multiple personal references. Our goal is to find our animals the best possible home and if multiple applications are received, All 4 Paws Rescue, Inc. will make the decision as to which home would be best for that particular pet. PLEASE NOTE : **We DO require that ALL dogs and cats in your household are spayed or neutered, kept up-to-date on vaccines and that they are seen annually for a check-up. **We do NOT require a fenced in yard unless otherwise noted for a specific pet. **We do NOT allow our cats to be declawed before or after adopting. **We do NOT have restrictions regarding children in an adoptive household unless otherwise noted for a specific pet. **We do NOT SHIP animals. If you are interested in adopting one of our pets and live outside of our area, you will be required to come meet and adopt the animal in person if your application is approved. **We do NOT hold animals. **We do NOT adopt to anyone under 21 years old. **ALL APPLICANTS MUST GO THROUGH OUR ENTIRE ADOPTION APPLICATION PROCESS - WE DO NOT MAKE EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.


Our adoption fee for dogs is $450 - that includes a wellness exam, all age appropriate vaccines, spay/neuter surgery, heartworm testing when age appropriate, heartworm treatment if necessary, worming, microchip and registration, flea/tick treatment, PLEASE NOTE - we do offer discounted adoption fees to families adopting more than one dog, senior dogs and dogs with special needs when possible. Regarding our adoption fee: We are often asked, "Why do you charge "so much" for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a "good home"?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support ALL of our rescued animals, not just the one they are adopting. A young, healthy dog might cost us $250-$400 in (discounted) vet care to prepare it for adoption, and many people will want to adopt that dog. An older dog or a special needs dog or a dog with health issues can easily cost us $500-$2,000 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care to prepare such a dog for adoption. Yet for a senior dog or a special needs dog, we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt it. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others who need us. Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you are willing to help us offer a better life to ALL of our animals by supporting them through our adoption fees. Without these adoption fees, we would not be able to save the lives that we save.


Our adoption fees for cats and kittens is $150 cat/kitten. Our cats/kittens have received all age appropriate vaccines; spay/neuter surgery, FIV/FELV testing, worming, microchip and registration, and flea/tick treatment. PLEASE GO TO OUR WEBSITE TO COMPLETE OUR ADOPTION APPLICATION

Come Visit Us!

We do NOT have a physical shelter or kennel that you can visit. Since all of our pets live in foster homes, they can be seen by appointment only. The first step in our adoption process is to submit an application. Appointments are only made with approved adopters. If you have any questions, please email
