Helping Paws Rescue Mission Statement
In October of 2002, Helping Paws Rescue was formed.
Helping Paws Rescue is a non-profit group designed to
provide temporary homes for stray, abandoned and
abused animals until a quality, permanent home can be
found. Foster homes are provided by area volunteers.
The main foster home is in Broadalbin and is managed
by Karen M. Kiaunis, LVT and Christel Krauss.
Once an animal is surrendered or recovered, Helping
Paws Rescue provides for any of the animals medical
needs through a local veterinarian. For example, when a
cat is surrendered or recovered, it is Felv/FIV tested,
wormed, vaccinated and spayed/neutered (if age
appropriate). Helping Paws Rescue is a boundary-less
organization and is open to all animals in need,
regardless of residing county or species.
Helping Paws Rescue is a non-profit group, which only
seeks to recover cost through public support. Monthly
adoption clinics are held at Country Acres Farm and Pet
Center in Burnt Hills. Helping Paws Rescue also holds
monthly fundraiser's to help recover costs and promote
spay and neuter education. Helping Paws Rescue also
helps disabled, senior and compromised income families
with the spay/neuter needs of their pets, as funding
