Paws Place Dog Rescue – Winnabow, North Carolina


Paws Place Dog Rescue is more than just a no-kill shelter. Our goal is to find loving homes for every dog we rescue, no matter how long it takes. One life at a time.

We operate entirely on donations, volunteers and an unending love for the animals. Upon arrival, each of our dogs is fully vetted, spayed/neutered, given all age-appropriate vaccinations, on heartworm preventative and microchipped before they go to loving homes.


Paws Place is a no-kill, non-profit shelter dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of dogs. We operate entirely on donations, volunteers, and an unending love for animals. Upon arrival, each of our dogs is fully vetted and examined. Before they are available for adoption, they are spayed or neutered, given all age-appropriate vaccinations, started on heart-worm preventative, microchipped, and showered with love and affection.

At any one time, we may have 40 dogs and puppies at the shelter and in foster homes. The average cost for treating an animal we take in is about $300! Adoption fees don’t even begin to cover these costs. On average, Paws Place adopts almost 100 pets every year!


Paws Place is able to do the work we do only because of volunteers and contributions from animal lovers like you. Costs to maintain the animals at Paws Place are several thousands dollars per month. Only your contributions allow us to continue our mission. Donations in any amount are desperately needed. We need your ongoing financial support! Because of our IRS 501(c)3 designation, all of your donations are tax deductible!
