Operation Paws for Homes is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization devoted to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of dogs and cats who have overcome great odds and deserve wonderful, caring forever homes. These dogs and cats are rescued from overcrowded high kill shelters in the southern region of the United States, North & South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi and Virginia. We partner with local shelters as needed. OPH does not operate a shelter or have a physical location. We rely on foster families who open their homes to give love and attention to each dog while it waits for a forever home.
