Heidi Reynolds and her son were driving home with a hot, stinky car full of dogs one Saturday a number of years ago. She was helping to transport shelter dogs from the South to Pennsylvania, where rescues were waiting to pick up the dogs and place them in foster homes. Her son looked to her and said, “It’s like we are getting them just in time. You should open a rescue called Paws n’Time.”

Paws n’Time was born from this conversation and Reynolds’ dream. The organization has grown over the years, and its mission – focused strongly on helping pet owners in the community – leads the organization to work hard to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dogs.

Our Mission Statement

Paws n’Time Canine Rescue is a Pennsylvania non-profit company focused on the rescue and re-homing of dogs. Keeping our focus on our community, we aim to educate and assist current owners with the health and welfare of their animals, enabling them to keep their pets through hard times.  Our rescue financially assists struggling families by providing standard vaccinations and a nutrient-rich, quality food for their animals.

If an owner must surrender their pet, Paws n’Time Canine Rescue offers a network of temporary foster homes to care for the dog until a loving family adopts.  In addition, these services are extended to local strays and dogs housed in high-kill shelters.  

We believe that a large part of reducing the volume of dogs currently located in shelters is prevention.  As such, we promote spaying and neutering of all pets.   Paws n’Time Canine Rescue offers sponsorship to animals for this surgery with the hope of reducing the chance of puppies being born that are unwanted, without proper care or love waiting for them. 

Paws n’Time Canine Rescue strives to promote the human/animal bond as one that is mutually supportive, responsible, enduring and important to the wellbeing of all family members - owners and pets alike.
