FUZZY PAWZ RESCUE LLC

Helping out pooches (and kitties) in a pickle

Boise, ID   |  www.fuzzypawzrescue.com

Mission

Our mission is to rescue unwanted dogs and cats that are in shelters and pounds located throughout Idaho. Our non-profit rescue places each animal into our foster home program while we search for forever homes for them. We supply all vet care, food, toys, bedding; really anything they need while in our care. We focus on those animals that are considered “hard to adopt" for various reasons; like kennel stress, having a black coat, being over 8 years old, etc. Often a foster home rather than a shelter environment helps give many of these animals a second chance at the life they deserve!

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We still have a problem getting people to donate supplies/money for cats and kittens. In 2021 we have struck partnerships with 2 local organizations that will assist in the donation of cat/kitten food and litter.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Spay/Neuter

Each animal that comes into Fuzzy Pawz Rescue will be altered before being placed in a foster home.  In order to keep adoption fees low the rescue uses donated funds to help cover the cost of alterations.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Fuzzy Pawz will hold 1 public microchip clinic in the Boise, ID area each year. The low cost clinic hopes to chip 50 dogs/cats at a much reduced cost of a vet clinic. Fuzzy Pawz will register the microchips at no cost.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Our main focus is finding homes for hard to place dogs and cats. Many of the animals that we take in have major medical issues or are seniors.

Population(s) Served
Adults

We will spay/neuter privately owned cats on a case by case basis targeting low-income households

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to assist shelters and pounds in lowering their rate of euthanasia for healthy, adoptable dogs and cats. We also work to educate owners on the importance of spay/neutering their animals. In 1020 our hope is to increase the number of dogs we take into foster care by 5%. We also hope to be able to spay/neuter 20 feral cats and 20 community owned cats in the Treasure Valley. We also will work on helping owners keep their animals by supplying food/vet care on a case by case basis.

We form alliances with shelters and pounds throughout Idaho that have an over abundance of healthy animals that need forever homes. Each year we add to our growing list of shelters/pounds that we deal with on a regular basis which allows us to take more animals into foster homes. We will also add more foster homes that will take in strictly cats.

We will also continue to increase our donations of animal supplies that can then be distributed to low-income families in our community in an effort to keep the animals in their homes rather than being turned into a shelter/rescue.

Fuzzy Pawz Rescue has a strong base of volunteers that foster animals as needed, we also have strong ties to community shelters/pounds that allow us to help those animals in the most need.

We have a good financial support system through adoptions and donations. We currently work with two animal care supply chains that donate food and other supplies on a regular basis. In the past year we have increased the number of donations from the community for dog/cat food.

In 2020 we exceeded the number of private animals that we had hoped to be able spay/neutered for the public by 20. We attended more spay/neuter events and we added educational spay/neuter materials to our website.
