About Us

Our History


The founders originally started Paws For Life Animal Rescue, Inc. in October 2017. With the support and countless hours from Erica, Brittany, and a number of volunteers, fosters and donors, were able to save over 500 animals!!  We are so proud of what was accomplished in such a short period of time. Due to a change in ownership, Melissa and Vaughn have started a new rescue "Paws 4 Life Animal Rescue" which is a registered 501c3 organization.

Our Mission


It starts with you! Our mission is to help homeless pets get a second chance in life. We primarily rescue animals in need in the New England area. Every animal that comes into our care is evaluated and receives the appropriate veterinary care prior to adoption.

Our Team


We are a small organization and work solely on support from our fosters, volunteers, and donors.  We are always looking for additional support so that we can continue to save more animals in need.
