We Need Fosters and Volunteers

Needy Paws Rescue strives to save dogs from being euthanized. We help dogs from animal pounds in Missouri and Illinois, as well as owner surrenders. We need both short and long-term fosters across the area to take a variety of dogs, big and small. Fostering is a rewarding and fulfilling experience. In most cases, there is little or no expense to the foster home since we will pay for supplies and medical expenses. In return, fosters offer these amazing creatures a loving safe home and an opportunity at a second chance. Needy Paws relies on our volunteers.  We need volunteers for fundraising, transporting, adoption events, marketing and so much more.

If you are interested in fostering, please complete the Foster Application or if you would prefer to help us by volunteering, just complete our  Volunteer Application.  We would love to have you join us.

We need monetary donations in order to get our dogs ready to find their forever homes.  All dogs will be completely vetted which includes all shots, spayed or neutered, heartworm tested and preventative, flea/tick treatment and microchipped. To help us get our dogs ready for adoption, just click on the Donate button.
