Who We Are

Praying for Paws, Inc. is a rescue group started in 2005 by Carol Kelly, and is dedicated to matching homeless dogs in Henry County with loving, forever homes.

We are rescue only. We do not sell dogs and are not affiliated with any group that sells dogs.

Our Story

We love animals and believe they deserve warm and loving homes. We work diligently to match our foster pets with the right home environments where they will thrive on plenty of love and care.

Most of our dogs are owner surrenders, but sometimes we pull dogs from the local animal shelter.

You'll see us participating in many local community events, offering information and education to the public regarding behavioral issues and how to better care for their pets.

How we work

We take dogs from many different situations, get them checked out by our favorite vet, cleaned up, vaccinated, micro-chipped, temperament-tested, and ready to make a great impression for their potential new parents.

Because we are a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on donations from fellow pet-lovers and volunteers to provide assistance, foster homes, or just help caring for our rescues until they are adopted.

Next Steps...

Ultimately, the best help comes in the form of a hero ready to save a life through adoption. All of our dogs are viewable on PetFinder - simply click the link to the right or visit our Adopt page for more information before you link over.

Once you have found your soul mate and are ready to take the next step, you can find the adoption application and contract, along with other important details, on our Adopt page.

If you aren't ready to take the leap but you still want to help, you can check out our Give and Volunteer pages for the many ways you can help with financial giving or donation of items.
