Here at Paws It Forward, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all animals. We strive to build relationships and make a positive impact on all of our pursuits. Every dog deserves a chance to have a better life. Every dog deserves to be treated humanely. It doesn't matter where they come from, what breed they are, or what size they may be. We are their voice.
Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
Since November of 2011 the rescue has been growing. It all started when two friends, working in a pet store, learned about the helpless animals being euthanized in the USA. At first, their efforts were focused on the high-kill shelters in California. Soon after, they were helping local animals as well. As the network grew and more foster homes came on board, they were able to make a difference in many more lives.
Over the years Paws It Forward went from a Society to a Registered Charity. They have hosted and participated in several fundraisers, community events and more! For the past 3 years, they have been selected as one of the Top 3 Charities for the 'Best of Kelowna reward'. Overall, they are so humbled to have countless volunteers and foster homes that help them on the journey of saving lives.
Not having a facility or 'shelter', they rely on the community to provide a safe loving place. All the in's and out's of the rescue are handled by dedicated volunteers. The fosters offer their time and space to dogs in need all the time! As a group, they can train, transport and care for the dogs.
