Prairie Paws Rescue is looking for permanent foster homes and adoptees for a number of recently rescued dogs until they are adopted.
The nonprofit organization recently took in a number of dogs after a man was trying to give them away in the Buffalo Mall parking lot on Jan. 29.
The rescued dogs were eight purebred German shepherd puppies, a pregnant springer spaniel and an-other mixed-breed dog, according to Pat Rinde, volunteer with Prairie Paws.
The pregnant springer spaniel gave birth to 11 puppies two days after being rescued.
The dogs are currently in foster homes and are in need of permanent homes.
“Prairie Paws is sometimes the last chance for these pets, because the shelter can only take in so many,” Rinde said. “If there is no room at the shelter they will be euthanized.”
Rinde encourages all pet owners to have their pets spayed or neutered. Feb. 24 is Spay Day USA and some vet clinics are offering reduced fees this month.
If you are interested in volunteering, adopting a pet or becoming a foster home for rescued animals call 320-4553, or visit www.prairiepawsrescue.com for more information.
