Sweet Paws Rescue is NOT an Animal Shelter. Sweet Paws Rescue is a ?shelterless? dog rescue organization run by a great group of animal loving volunteers & fosters. Since SPR has no formal facility to house the dogs, we are a collaboration between a group of seasoned and reputable rescue women in Mississippi and Alabama, and a collection of amazing foster volunteers here in Massachusetts. SPR works to re-home dogs from Massachusetts, Alabama & Mississippi and beyond.
