Paws to the Rescue is a registered 501c3 Non-Profit animal organization founded in 2006 by Jen Nall. In 2008, PTTR was awarded a contract to manage the Marion County Animal Shelter. Their goal is to save as many animals as possible from euthanasia.

This organization doesn't see euthanasia as a legitimate form of population control, focusing instead on networking, teaching the community how spay/neuter can control the overpopulation problem, and eventually transforming the shelter into a No-Kill facility.

Unfortunately, this all takes money. Without funds, the dogs pictured in this slideshow are set for euthanasia Friday morning. Paws to the Rescue is doing all they can to avoid killing these beauties. Please put their name and animal identification number in any email directed to the shelter.

Running a shelter properly and effectively, however, does not come cheaply. There are many expenses that must be incurred to operate a shelter. Food, medication, supplies, payroll and insurance just to name a few.

Paws to the Rescue and the Marion County Animal Shelter are in desperate need of financial assistance. The payroll alone is approximately $3,000 per week. That includes the salary of the shelter director and staff to maintain the facilities and care for the animals.

Their county budget for one year is only $53,000. The rescue must come through support by animal lovers like you.
