Helping Paw Program
Our Helping Paw program assists seniors, hospice patients and other pet guardians facing challenging times in keeping their beloved dogs and cats, and provides a bridge to help them stay together as long as possible.
When people are physically or financially unable to care for their pets, Peace of Mind Dog Rescue would like to lend a helping paw.
Our Helping Paw program provides volunteer assistance and financial assistance. The financial assistance program is generously funded, in part, by a grant from Animal Welfare and Assistance Group.
Pet Food Assistance
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that many members of our community are struggling to provide pet food for their dogs and cats. If you need assistance providing pet food for your pet, email us.
Helping Paw Financial Assistance
We work closely with Max's Helping Paws Foundation and Birchbark Foundation. You do not need to fill out an application for each program. We can share your application with other organizations that can help.

- ID tags
- Dog jackets, sweaters, raincoats
A few of the dogs and people this program has helped:
"I think your organization is a godsend. There are so many here who are older, and their older or abandoned pets need to be fostered and loved and cared for when their owner has become disabled or has died. You should be very proud of yourselves. This is a beautiful thing you are doing. I hope word gets out about your organization. It is a crucially needed service, not only for the animals, but for their people, too."
