Who We Are

COUNTRY PAWS RESCUE, Inc. A little about us……..
Country Paws Rescue began in 1999 and is located in Hempstead, Texas. We rescue abandoned, dumped, abused, neglected, handicapped, sick and otherwise unwanted animals.
The need in our area is great as there are no city or county facilities for animals and nothing planned in the near future. Animals are dumped and abandoned at an exceedingly high rate and have nowhere to go other than to be hit by cars, shot, starved, or some other unfortunate and painful death.
Country Paws Rescue, Inc. is a no-kill, non-profit shelter and a registered 501 ( c ) (3) corporation. We currently house and care for more than 150 unwanted animals. The out-of-pocket costs to us for feeding, vetting and housing is enormous. Our only means of caring for the animals is through private donations - the generosity, kindness and support of individuals for donations and assistance in operating our shelter.
We feed more than 250 pounds of dry dog food daily and this does not include puppy, cat or kitten food or food for special needs animals.
Rescued animals live at our shelter until loving, caring, “forever” homes are found. We carefully screen applicants and match people with pets so that a strong, loving bond is made. We do everything possible to make sure that the animals are placed in homes where they will live out their natural lives with love, happiness, respect and security.
Our Mission and Goal is to alleviate suffering, educate the public on the responsible care of pets and MOST IMPORTANTLY, the great need for SPAYING AND NEUTERING. We live in a throw away society and ONLY 1 in 10 pets is lucky enough to find a home for life. Homeless animals are put to death by the thousands in local shelters - do what you can to help stop the needless killing and spread the word - “Spay & Neuter Your Pets Before They Turn 6 Months Old.”
So, if you have a conscience, stop the killing by spaying and neutering your pets and please - give a home to or at least feed a starving stray animal. They deserve at least that much kindness before (most) of them are killed or die. These animals are innocents and they do not ask to be born into this overcrowded world, let’s help protect them.
(We need and accept all donations of food, money, and other general supplies: (i.e. - bleach, paper towels, blankets, sheets, towels, dog houses, dog and cat toys and treats, kennel and pen building materials, etc.) We also need volunteers willing to donate time and love to help the animals.
