Sandi Paws Rescue in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin is a non-profit, 100% volunteer-based organization dedicated to rescuing, fostering, and finding homes for abused and abandoned dogs.

Love is powerful and free, but, unfortunately, Sandi Paws Rescue can't survive on love alone. With no public funding, they rely solely on donations from people like you.
