Save a life

Safe Paws is a 501(C)(3) non-profit, shelterless, all-breed rescue group based in Boone, IA geared specifically towards rescuing dogs and cats sitting on death row with euthanasia dates.

To the best of our abilities, we evaluate the temperament and suitability for living with other dogs, cats, and children of all of our rescues. An animal’s health is checked, and we make sure they are up-to-date on all vaccines and are spayed or neutered. Then, we place them in loving foster homes until they find their very own family. Our goal is to meet the needs of each animal as an individual and to assure proper placement in a loving forever home.
