 PPR Reunites Senior Dog and Owner

From The Jamestown Sun... Shortly after she moved from Nevada to Bismarck in June, Anita Newgard found she was missing something important.

Confused by her new surroundings, Heidi, Newgard’s 15-year-old one-eyed border collie mix, had wandered off into the woods and gotten lost on June 13.

“She only has one eye, and is hard of hearing, so she took off trying to find out where home was, and we couldn’t find her,” Newgard said.

Thank You, Modern Woodmen!!

Prairie Paws Rescue would like to say a special thanks to John Saul of Modern Woodmen. John made a special and much needed donation to our organization. His donation helped Prairie Paws purchase four pet crates at Tractor Supply Co. of Jamestown to transport animals from harms way to our rescue, to vet appointments, adoption events, and to foster homes safely.

Thanks again, John, for your donation and helping our animals at Prairie Paws!!

Miranda Lambert and MuttNation Foundation Make a Generous Donation to Prairie Paws!

Miranda Lambert and Kaye John Country music star Miranda Lambert loves dogs, and her MuttNation Foundation has spread that love, along with thousands of dollars, all over the U.S. — including Jamestown’s own Prairie Paws Rescue.

The local rescue organization received $3,000 this week from Lambert and her charity.

“I burst into tears when I opened the mailbox and opened the letter,” said Kaye John, co-founder of Prairie Paws. “… we never get money of that denomination given to us — we feel like we’ve hit the lottery and then some.”

To read the entire story, visit the Jamestown Sun. Thank you, Miranda, Lambert family, and MuttNation Foundation!!

Meet Gemma!

Hi, I'm Gemma! I am a female kitten that came into Prairie Paws, and I was in need of a little extra TLC. I had a bad upper respiratory infection, crusty eyes, and ear mites :(. Luckily I'm getting better, and maybe you can help me feel better too! I was born around July 25th, 2016, and right now I live with my foster mommy with other dogs and cats. I am very playful and very sociable! I even dressed up as a bumble bee for Halloween this year!
