4 Paws Dog Rescue

4 Paws Dog Rescue of NJ is a 501c3 non-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer dog rescue organization serving the Southern NJ and Philadelphia area. We are dedicated to rescuing dogs from public shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia due to pet overpopulation, dogs surrendered by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those suffering from abuse or neglect. 

We place dogs in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process which includes taking considerable care in finding good matches and educating prospective adopters about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a dog into their homes and lives. 

Animals in our care are spayed or neutered, receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment, and placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement in their permanent homes. We assist dogs in distress without regard to age or breed. We remain committed to the welfare of the dog beyond the adoption process.

We work with area shelters and other rescue organizations to develop a network of supporters and volunteers.
