Pink Paw Rescue Society

501(c)3 Nonprofit

Hi, my name is Kim and I am the founder and director of Pink Paw Rescue Society, Inc. PPRS is a 501(c)3 registered charity. (EIN# 83-4683348).

OUR MISSION is to speak for those that cannot. This means we want to make sure that dogs and other animals have a voice, through us. To be heard when they need help, to stop the abuse and neglect. Through educating the general public, legislation, and local laws, we want to make conditions for dogs and other animals the best it can be .

OUR GOALS are two-fold:
FIRST is to provide not only love, but food, shelter, vet care to those animals in need. We will take in any breed, but prefer giants and bully breeds for our rescue. So many are misunderstood in the way they are protective yet so gentle with the families.

THE SECOND GOAL is that our military service needs more options to care for their pet when members are deployed so they still have their pet to come home to. We can coordinate with transports and other shelters to give each dog the best foster home possible while their moms and dads are away. No matter where the dog is.

To accomplish all this, takes lots of time, volunteers and money. Yes, every non-profit needs donations of money and other supplies ( blankets, beds, food, collars and leashes, bowls, etc.) Puppy kisses are so worth your time!

The picture is of my first rescue that was not from a shelter and one of the inspirations for Pink Paw Rescue Society. A 10+ yr old Bull Mastiff from an online ad giving various medical issues as reasons to rehome him. When I first met him, he not only had several medical issues, but was severely depressed. Neither the vet or I thought he would last long, even with medical care and love. But, we underestimated the power of love and companionship. He and Maggi (the white and red Staffordshire) created a deep bond on first sight. We cleared his medical issues the best we could, the arthritis was severe and painful but he was a trooper. After some renewal of socialization skills, Mr. Who-Chi Moosey Goose was winning hearts everywhere and was very happy. The move to Lewistown, Mt. provided a challenge in stairs to the temporary apartment, and he met that well, growing stronger. We finally found a home and moved to Conrad, Mt. on Sept. 9, 2020. He loved his new home, but the pain with is arthritis and probable nerve and back issues took over. After 1.5 yrs with PPRS and Maggi, he passed on Sept. 24th, 2020 at about 12 yrs old . Maggi Moo is the inspiration for the rescue, Moosey Goose was the first rescue, a hospice patient. Such a rascal and loved by all who met him. He is very much missed by us both.

Dedication to  Bear Laney
This page is dedicated to Mr. William 'Bear' Laney in Rudyard, Mt.

He and his wife, Angel, were in a car accident on Aug. 17, 2022. They were both taken to the hospital and Bear was listed as critical and put on life support. He passed on Aug. 18, 2022. HIs wife has requested that in lieu of any flowers or other memorializations, donations be made to PPRS. Bear was very proud to be an American and served his country well. He was also very proud of his Native American heritage as well.

Bear and Angel have become great supporters of the rescue and have adopted 2 dogs and helped adopt out several as well. Thor, the reverse brindle Daniff, was his pet project. Thor was about a year and 3 months when they adopted him to become a service dog for Bear as his beloved Roxie, a mastiff had passed in March of 2021. Bear had taken Thor to several Dr. appointments, the mall and shopping in 2022. He was less than 2 yrs old and did very well each time. In the mall, he spotted a bat on the ground and kept his place by Bear. Same for everywhere else, he even did great when a 4 yr old yelled "Doggie", ran up to Thor and hugged him. Thor kept his cool. Bear was so very proud of his accomplishment with Thor.

And I am honored to call both of them my friend and supporters of the rescue. They have given not only some financial assistance, but have helped in so many other ways. Donating yard sale items, time working with me to help get the dogs introduced and working together. Training tips for some and my Dane pup Lily Kate. She is so great due to their help. They even helped me move when we needed it.

Please help honor his memory. If money is not possible, and you are not near, just let people know we exist. Or offer to help in your local shelter or rescue in his name.

Thank you so much in advance. Pics coming soon! Kim




WISH LISTWISH LISTWISH LIST
Kim here again, with some things we need to keep our dogs safe and comfortable. Especially during winter here in Montana.
And, some of you may be aware, some may not, of the special needs for giant breed dogs like Great Danes, Mastiffs of all sorts,
Great Pyrenees, some breeds of shepherds, and even large sized Bully breeds. So, if I ask for specific types of things, it is to prevent
injury or promote their best health. Most giant breeds grow over 2 ft in one year, often a bit more. Their dietary needs are a bit different, especially when puppies. Their protein needs are only about 24% and fat only about 12% compared to most other breeds.
Pictures are of Mia and Daisy, both available for adoption. And of Thor, adopted to be trained as a service animal. ( I have it on good authority that he is doing extremely well, loves working with his vest on and is very fast learner!)

Suggestions:
  1. Blankets, towels, hand towels (they do drool a bit),
  2.  Beds, any type will do to keep their elbows off hard surfaces and protect them getting calluses or fluid pockets.
  3.  Toys! Most rubber ones are chewed apart easily. They do not digest rawhide well. So we prefer Nylabone type toys and ropes.
  4.  Treats, any type will be loved and begged for.
  5.  Vitamins. Currently we are using Pro-Sense from Amazon.
  6.  Hip and joint protection treats. I start them young to prevent issues.
  7.  Food! I like Gentle Giants brand from Walmart, Amazon, Chewy and where ever. It is formulated for giants, but can be used for any breed. Since they started in 2009, there has never been a recall! But any type is appreciated.
  8.  Leashes and collars. I try to use Max and Neo brand. Just a personal preference. Most solid colors have glow in the dark lines that show very well when light hits them, and I like the no chain martingales. They do less damage than a chain pulling on a throat. AND for every collar or leash purchased, one is donated to a rescue or shelter! (They have donation programs for most of their products!) 
  9. Food and water bowls, metal preferred ( easier to clean in dishwasher)
  10. Elevated food and water holders. anywhere from 12 to 18 inches. This makes it much less likely that they will get bloat, a life threatening condition that requires surgery if they are caught quickly.

That may be a long list, but if you have any questions on why we prefer specific items, please contact us. We are not trying to ask the moon, just what is best for our dogs.

Application ProcessApplication ProcessApplication Process
How do I  adopt one of our dogs you might ask. Great question!

First, look through the dogs we have available. Don't see what you want? Email us with what you are looking for as for breed, characteristics, temperament, size, what you expect from a dog. See one that tugs the heartstrings? Again, just email us and we can send out an application to make sure you and the dog are compatible. Please be sure to indicate of you have a specific dog in mind, and give us a reason you want a dog in your life and some basic information on your living situation. There are no wrong answers, well maybe if you live on Mt. Everest! Some of our dogs come from bad situations and we do not want to set them up to fail by placing them in a similar situation. ( like placing one on a farm when they have a proven high prey drive for farm animals, or maybe don't like women). Once your application has been filled out and approved, you can visit the dog.

Please give us at least 72 hours notice as some of our dogs may be in a foster and we need to work around their schedule.

If you are looking for service dog, there is a different application process involved requiring verification of the information provided as well as how the dog is provided to adopt. Please give breed requests or size as well. The dog may be trained for your specific needs for simple needs or their training may need to be continued elsewhere, based on your needs and availability of trainers at the time. When we are done training the dog, then it is your turn to get trained! LOL. But true.

After you have met and fallen in love with your choice for a pet and they seem to like you too, we will do a home check to make sure it is a good fit for the dog in your home environment.

Even if you have live on an 18 wheeler or travel bus that should be fine, but you may need to come to us. Sometimes a regular house or apartment is not what a rambling dog needs! A fenced in yard is preferred but not required in most cases. We do check landlords for permission to have the dog, and will make sure that if there are any questions from your landlord we will be able to answer them.

Thank you!

MS.Daisy Mae!

UPDATE:
Daisy is in a foster home now! They have 3 kids, 3 other dogs, tons of fish tanks, a rabbit and 2 pigs. She is doing great there. She is much more socialized, but a bit leery of men or tall boys til she gets to know them sitting down. Unfortunately, the pigs refuse to play with her, but she loves watching the fish and rabbit, as well as the view of trains out the front window. She has now passed dog 2.5! You would never know she had any issues before at all. And all this progress in a short 4 months. This girl learns at the speed of light! No counter stealing noted even. And the best news is that Daisy's fosters want to adopt her ***!!!!!!***

She has one last trip to the vets to check the lumps still there 3.5 months after her spay. They do not seem to be attached to her abdomen, but they are clumping together and becoming firmer . Well, she had surgery for removal
of her lumps. They kept her overnight due to a bit of bleeding. She went home to her fosters and was fine for 4 days. Then she started bleeding again and had to have ANOTHER surgery to repair the first and remove more tissue. She is now doing well and being a typical dane, laying on the sofa all day long! lol. She loves her brother and sister dogs and pigs. She gave up interest since the inside bunny is lazy but jumps like a rabbit to play with the ones outside her fenced in yard.


This is Ms. Daisy Mae!. She is a 2 and a half yr old Great Dane. She is HER puppy stage right now as she has had at least 4 litters in her short time and never got to be a puppy hardly herself. Daisy will never have to worry about having another litter as she is now spayed. She is on hold to adopt for now as she needs to learn some basic commands and gain some weight and muscles to get her girlish figure back. She does respond very quickly to her name from anyone.

Daisy has a lot of promise as a guardian dog. She let you know if something is different in the neighborhood. Daisy loves to give kisses and get lots of attention, typical of a Dane. A bit more on the clumsy side, but loves other male dogs and to play with them. Not tested on other female dogs yet. She is having to learn to be a dog since she was kept in a kennel for most of her life to date. We hope she will be ready in 6 months, but will let her determine when she is ready to be adopted.

Keep your eye on this girl, she has the potential to become quite the lady! The last picture is with my Dane, Ethan, whom I rescued and she was a kennel mate of. She also plays with Thor, who has already been adopted out and just waiting for the fence to be finished so he can go to his fur-ever home and his new mom and dad will train him as a PTSD dog.

COURTESY POSTINGCOURTESY POSTING
Ok, so we are not a giant breed. We are English Springer Spaniels!!!

We are now 9 weeks old and there are two of us that are available to become your hunting dog or pet. Mom and Dad are available for you to see and both are registered. Dad is white with lots of black speckles, lean and very friendly. Mom is white and red, with fewer speckles. She is trained as a hunter. Potty training has started and we are up to date on all vaccines and we are even micro chipped! We have been well socialized with both other dogs around us and we gravitate to our humans for pets and cuddles.

The two of us can go separately or as a pair. There is a fee, part of which will be refunded after any spaying or neutering.

Since this is a Courtesy Posting, PPRS will verify all adopters and verify all info on applications.

ThorThorThor
Hi!

My name is Thor. It used to be Opie, but my new mom and dad did not think I was that goofy. But I am, because I am
just now almost 2 yrs old. I am a Daniff, half Mastiff and half Great Dane. I got adopted by a really nice couple that saw my potential thru my puppy antics. They thought I would make a great service dog. So, from the middle of Oct. 2021 til about the middle of Feb. 2022, I was in training. Then, they took me out on my first real job. They said I passed with flying colors! I did not get distracted, I sat when told and settled well without moving or going over across the hall to see what I could find. I walked beside my daddy with no issues. So now, instead of just playing with another dog in the yard and getting into trouble (I used to think farm animals and cats were just big toys for me to play with, but I admit now I might have been a bit rough on them), I have a job as a SERVICE DOG. That makes me feel very important. Of course I now have 4 sisters, 1 brother and 2 cats to play with. I know to be gentle with the cats now. I am so happy I could be the bestest dog I can be. Most of the time. hehehe, I still get into trouble but am learning some of my ideas dont work out so well.

Thanks Kim for bringing me to my mom and dad. Oh, and Uncle W.
Tara
UPDATE: ​​​​Tara has found a new home where she is happy to be with the other dogs on the farm. 


Hi, and my name is now Tara. It used to be Penny, but I like and answered to Tara. Kim needs to change some of my info and thought I could tell you about myself the best.

Well, I am a mini mastiff! I am only about 70#. I have a very silky brindle coat and eyes that like to keep track of you. I know basic commands, shake with both paws and (don't tell Kim) I have a few tricks up my sleeve too. I'm a young 4 to 6 yrs and not only am I super people friendly and like other dogs with proper intro. I do like to be a bit bossy. I am crate and loose leash trained as well as follow voice command well off leash. I am so happy when I meet people I do a growl sound while wagging my tail and want to lick you lots. I am also good with farm animals. Kid friendly and of course housebroken. I like being outside during the day in nice weather. So if you are looking for a cuddly friend, I'm the girl for you!


CasperCasper
Hi everybody!

UPDATE:
Casper is adopted!!! And a totally different guy. He has confidence and loves playing with other dogs and meeting new people!

My name is Casper and I am a Great Pyrenees. We are usually loyal, loving, laid back and I like to have a job to do. I am now in foster but i really like it there. So I am hoping to be a foster fail! I'm only about 2 yrs and farm animal friendly. I am a bit shy and very easy going. They have 6 other dogs besides me and my other foster sister. A bit overwhelming, but I'm taking it in stride.


NatashaNatashaNatasha
HI EVERYBODY!!!!

UPDATE: I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!

My name is Natasha and I am 8 weeks old so I don't know much of the world. I know my mom and dad and that my siblings are gone now. I heard they were adopted, and I need to be adopted too. I asked my dad what that meant and he said it means that someone will come and take me to their house to be their dog. They will love me, feed me good things and make sure I am safe. I also got told I will be vaccinated, which means shots to protect me from nasty germs and diseases that can make me very sick. Whew! that was a lot to learn at one time.
But let me tell you about me. I live in Montana and saw my first snow. It was fun to run in but cold. Dad said my paws would get more furry maybe and protect me from the cold. My dog daddy is a mix of German Shepherd and Great Pyrenees, but is not big. My mom is Border Collie and Pit Bull mix. I think look more like me, but I put their pic on here and will let you decide. I am told I am a typical puppy, all energy that does not where to go or what to do, so I get told NO a lot. I am learning that means to stop what I am doing. But I get right back in trouble again when I do something else. I need someone to help me learn how to be a good dog, to sit, stay, come when called, to leave it and to get out (but why would I need to get out anything except trouble.??? I am told I am very cute and even cuter when I am sleeping on my space.
I would love to have some kids to play with, maybe that will help me a good girl as I would play with them and take a nap when done.
There will be some things that will go with me so I feel less scared at my new home.

Please look at my pictures , mom and dad are the last one, and see how cute and loving I am. I can hardly wait to start a new life with someone soon!
MAYAMAYAMAYA
UPDATE: Maya has found her furever home! No other dogs, and lots of love. She is happy at her new home.


This is Maya, a Cane Corso!
She is 7 yrs old, about 120 #, a very sweet, loving, slightly playful on her terms, and even knows some tricks, and is ambidextrous! She walks well on a leash, has great recall and likes the nickname CowCow or MyMy. She will greet you each morning with kisses and would love to sleep in bed with you. She does good snuggles.

Her breeder adopted her out and found out at about 1.5 yrs that she was being kept in an area
that small boys had unattended access to. Therefore, she was teased and poked at with sticks, rocks,
and anything else they thought was fun. So, she is not very fond of boys, little or bigger at this time. Then
her next owners , due to that fear, put her in a separate room to protect her nephews from her acting out. So,
we are making that a work in progress. While she barks at the boys next door when they are in the tree on the fence, she is not aggressive. So we are hoping we can help her understand not all males are bad and going to tease or
hurt her. Prior to being spayed, she had some fights with other larger female hunting dogs. To be honest, they came after she was well established. She did get along well with their smaller female dog, and with puppies. While my Lily Kate is a puppy for sure, she is almost as tall as Maya at 6 months! What can you expect from a Great Dane though. lol.

At the moment her ideal home would be women only with slow introductions to visitors, and little contact with male visitors. If you work from home, or are retired and want a loving companion to alert you to visitors or changes, she is for you!


No adoption application fee... but there is an adoption fee to cover medical expenses and donations are always welcome! Walking a dog or spend8ng time with them is good too. We do this out of pocket or with donations when available.
Thank you. Kim

We are sorry if it takes a while to get back to you, but the dogs are our first priority in providing care and enrichment/training. We try to reply in 72 hours or less except for weekends for contact letters. If you have an emergency leave a message, & contact your vet or animal control for care.

About
Hi, and thank you for looking at our pages.

As of 7/11/2022 we are not able to bring any more dogs into the rescue until we have a foster available appropriate for your dog. This is due to a change in location and limits on the number of animals allowed. We are hoping this will change next year as we are searching for a permanent site that will allow for more animals .

Thank you for your patience in this matter. If you would like to become a foster anywhere in MT, please feel free to contact us and get signed up!
