A Little Change Makes a Big Difference

Our Mission is to alleviate animal suffering caused by neglect, cruelty and ignorance and to promote the humane treatment of companion animals through prevention, intervention, placement, education and example.

Homepage

We are a 501(c)3 non profit animal foster/rescue organization located in Franklin, Pennsylvania. Founded in 2001, Precious Paws is dedicated to educating the public about proper pet care, preventing cruelty to animals, managing feral cat populations, offering low cost spay neuter services, and placing adoptable animals in forever homes. Our pet selection changes frequently and we maintain a list of available dogs from owners looking to rehome their pets as well as network with other rescues. Together, we can help you find the right pet for your family. Please do not purchase pets from a pet store or a breeder without first taking a moment to do some research (backyard breeders can be just as bad as puppy mills). We always need foster homes and volunteers for a variety of activities: grant writing, feral cat trapping, adoption counseling, post adoption follow-up, etc.

Let’s raise $10K !

Want to help save more than 1 million cats? Over the span of 7 years, just one unspayed cat can produce nearly 5,000 offspring! An extremely generous local business has offered a **$5,000* matching fund for a spay fund to help curb the growing stray cat problem in the area. However, we must first raise $5,000 ourselves in order to receive the match. – that’s a total of $10,000!

We only have until October 1, 2019 to raise this money. Please donate today (via Facebook), or contact PPAR and make a donation directly to our organization. Thank you for your continued support, and help spread the word for PPAR!
