About Our Rescue Group...

We are, and prefer to remain, small, pulling only a few dogs at a time and offering individualized attention to our prospective adopters. A commonality we share is that we

Our Adoption Process...
Southpaws is a progressive rescue that prides itself on a personalized application process. We strive to make it friendly, and assist with good matching advice and
direction, catered to the individual....the individual dog and adopter. Our application is available on the southpawsexpress.org site, and introductory emails always are
welcomed to Lucy at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our standard adoption fee is $450, which helps defray the weighty cost of transporting our foster dogs up north from their high
kill southern environments and providing an excellence of vet care, but some dogs will be discounted, due to age or exceptional needs.

All eastern states, primarily focusing upon the New England region. We have adopted as far down as Pennsylvania and as far up as Canada!!!
