Paw Paws Rescue Ranch Open House + Halloween Costume Contest!

Dog friendly event! Dog Costume Contest!

Almost 18 months in the making, the Rescue Ranch will be open for intakes and medical holding dogs that will go to foster. As a foster based rescue, the importance of this facility is to shower the animal with medical care and decompression so that the transition to foster care is easier. A main building consisting of 640 SF along with smaller areas for isolation, whelping, and senior hospice will be open for viewing and enjoying a few extra activities before the dogs arrive.
