Paws-N-Claws Iowa was founded in Summer of 2020 by three very dedicated volunteers. Together these individuals have more than a decade of experience in the animal welfare industry and came together to provide the most progressive rescue practices while working to save the lives of those who need us most. We are a 100% foster based organization - meaning every one of the pets in our program resides in a volunteer's home. These volunteers are the backbone of our organization, providing loving, in-home care until our pets are ready for their forever home. 

After one year in operation we brought 348 animals into our program from partner shelters/rescues, owner surrenders and breeder surrenders and we completed more than 250 adoptions. We know 2021-2022 will be a year of growth for our programs and we can’t wait to see how many lives are saved in 2022!

Our Paw It Forward program offers you an opportunity to help animals that otherwise would be facing unknown futures.  By participating in the Paw It Forward program, you will be providing life saving resources to the animals in our care - food, medical care, rehabilitation equipment and a location for our adoptables to be showcased. In addition, your gift assists us in bringing more programs  to Jasper County - we hope to make more community learning opportunities available through our Adoption Center. 

Your contributions will be recognized with a paw paw print on the space you are sponsoring. Paw prints will be on the wall near our adoption desk, or near the entrance of the specific space being sponsored.
