Prairie Paws Rescue is a non-profit organization started by seven Jamestown, North Dakota volunteers who are dedicated to rescuing pets in bad situations. Kaye John, who also belongs to Dakota Rescuers, is one of the organizers. She, as well as the other members of the group, wanted to do have a more local organization that they could be involved with. Becky Johnson, who worked with Kaye John to organize Prairie Paws Rescue, feels that her personal crusade is to save pets from puppy mills - kennels where dogs are raised in substandard conditions - and pounds. She despises the fact that puppy mills frequently kill unsold puppies or older dogs that have stopped producing. Also, animal pounds, as opposed to humane shelters, kill abandoned pets if they aren't adopted within a certain time period. In cases like these, Prairie Paws Rescue likes to take animals they believe they can place and e-mail other rescue groups across the country about them. Rescue volunteers arrange transportation to a group that can place the animal in a foster or permanent home. All this is done by volunteers who do not get paid for their efforts! This team effort, along with thoughtful donations from the community, has allowed Prairie Paws Rescue to save many animals that have become loved and loving pets to local residents.

Prairie Paws is a foster home-based rescue made up of several volunteers that donate their time and money to rehome the animals in need. It's all made possible by the annual fundraisers and free-will donations made by YOU! Donations are accepted through PAYPAL, or visit us at our monthly pet "Meet & Greets" at Tractor Supply Co. in Jamestown to make a donation in person. Our monthly Meet & Greets will resume later this year.
