PAWS Rescue of Northern Virginia

PAWS Rescue is an incorporated rescue and adoption organization established to rescue homeless and abandoned dogs in the Northern Virginia area. We are committed to saving as many dogs from euthanasia as possible. We rescue dogs from rural kill shelters and help them find loving homes. PAWS IS A NO-KILL RESCUE GROUP. We spay/neuter, vaccinate, de-worm, and micro-chip all our dogs as well as provide medical attention when needed. We rehabilitate our dogs by using behavioral training and giving them lots of love to restore their faith in human beings.
