The Middle Paw, a small group in Fairbury, plays as a “middle man” between people and animal rescues. The group transports, fosters and finds forever homes for animals in need.
Valerie Snyder, proprietor of The Middle Paw, began her exploits in helping rescued pets by working first hand with a rescue. Snyder realized, that there was a major need for a group, that could help rescues adopt out and find foster homes more rapidly.
“I’ve always enjoyed caring for animals, so far we’ve helped 35 dogs, two raccoon babies and a small amount of cats,” Snyder said. “The way I look at it is, there is no bad dog, just bad owners and every dog deserves a chance at a good home.”
The Middle Paw hosts fundraisers to help fund the work they are doing with the rescue’s. One of these fundraisers is an online auction that will take place through their Facebook account. The auction will begin August 1 at 8am and continues through August 8.
