Precious Paws Animal Rescue (PPAR) was founded in 2001 in Franklin, Pennsylvania by a diverse group of local citizens who care deeply about animals. We have no paid staff and all of our efforts are coordinated through volunteers. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.
PPAR believes that all life has the right to freedom from cruelty, abuse, ignorance, exploitation and neglect, and is entitled to legal, moral and ethical consideration and protection. Furthermore, we believe that every domesticated animal has the right to be wanted, cherished, and protected, and deserves not to be born unless these rights can be guaranteed.
PPAR receives no tax dollars, federal or state funding and relies on donations, grants, fundraisers, bequests (wills), and adoption fees to fund its programs. PPAR is not affiliated with other humane organizations or animal control facilities. We exist through the generosity of many individuals and businesses and are supported by a community that cares.
