Palimino Valley Pet Rescue - is a non-profit 501c3 organization that was formed with one mission in mind: find pets good homes, permanently. This mission has two parts. The first is to rescue dogs and cats from our over crowded shelters. We try to focus on the harder to place and special needs animals. Animals that are at risk (to be euthanized.) We give them the time and care needed to find them loving, permanent homes. The second part is to educate the public and provide services that will reduce the numbers of unwanted dogs and cats. We believe in PETS FOR LIFE.

Tahoe Husky Rescue is volunteer based and located in Truckee, Ca. Our main focus is rescuing dogs from our local shelters (Washoe, Placer, Yolo, Nevada counties) who are in immediate danger of being euthanized. Our mission is to find all the dogs AMAZING homes where they can live out the rest of their days and thrive! Along with our adoptions, we offer helpful information and breed awareness to the community as well.
The Art Paws funds will help us with veterinarian expenses such as spay and neutering costs along with any medical issues that may arise. The funds will also help with leashes, collars, beds, and food for the huskies at Tahoe Husky Rescue.
Res-Que, Ltd. is a small, volunteer based, all breed dog rescue with big hearts saving harder to place dogs and giving them a second chance. Located in Reno, Nevada, our goal is to take scared dogs that are showing poor behavior in the shelter into foster homes, teaching them the world is not a bad place, allowing them a second chance. We rehabilitate and guide our dogs on their beginning of a new life. We spay/neuter, ensure all shots are current, and microchip our dogs prior to finding their new homes. Without our intervention many great dogs would die, dogs that are shut down and mentally unsure but have great potential. Res-Que intends for all of the funds raised during Art Paws to go directly to veterinary expenses, so they can continue to rescue unwanted litters of puppies, ensuring they are spayed or neutered and placed in great homes; or rescuing injured dogs from rural shelters with no medical facilities, providing the medical treatment they deserve.
