Caring Hearts and Paws Rescue Inc. is a nonprofit dog rescue located in WNY. We have a dedicated team working together to help save dogs from high kill shelters, euthanasia lists and from them living on the streets.

Caring Hearts and Paws Rescue Inc. was inspired to start when our family volunteered for another rescue. We didn’t understand the severity of the innocent furbabies in need. We didn’t understand just how many dogs were on the streets, or in a high kill shelter.  What WE did know is that WE wanted to do more than just open our home to a temporary furbaby in need, We wanted to  help make a difference!!

We had one foster who walked in our doors with her 8 puppies and made herself right at home as if she knew she belonged. After being with us for a few months and having to watch her go through heartworm treatment, she officially became part of our family. This girl went from living on the streets, to being on a euthanasia list, to having a minor surgery after having her babies, to end up thriving, well-loved, and one spoiled little lady.

When my husband and I made the decision to volunteer, we didn’t expect to welcome so many dogs into our home, we just knew that they needed us at that time and took in what and who we could.

When we decided to start own own rescue, We didn’t expect our kids to be fully involved, and we certainly didn’t expect the love and support we have had from so many people around us.

It’s because of the love and support we have received from so many that push us to continue. It’s because the compassion and love that spreads like wild fire that helps make a difference!

Because of the love and support from so many, the compassion to want to make a difference in rescuing a furbaby… TOGETHER, WE have saved over 258 fur-babies in our first year, because of EVERYONE!

Not only have we seen our foster pups and dogs flourish just from being loved, but we have also gotten so many overwhelming stories about just how well they are living in their new homes.

We are a dedicated family working with friends in honor of one particular foster pup that pushed us to where we are today.
