About Us

Promoting Animal Welfare & Safety

716 Paws is a group of avid animal advocates who knows its our responsibility and passion to help both families and animals find their perfect match.  We are a volunteer-based animal rescue group founded to facilitate the placement of animals into their best-matched forever home.  We help both local and out of state animals find homes.  Our goal is to reduce the overall euthanasia rate amongst canines and to give both dog and human alike a forever companion.
