Our Story

My name is Shaina & I am the founder and owner of Rescue Pawz LLC.

The reason behind it all: 

I adopted my dog from Helen Woodward Animal Center in San Diego, CA on January 30, 2016. On that day, I realized how powerful the love between a dog and a person could be. Pets aren't just dogs or cats... they're family. I quickly became acquainted with the animal shelter world, attending events, having puppy meet ups and even finding my own dog's siblings on Instagram.

​I came up with the idea for Rescue Pawz because I wanted a way to be able to give back to the community. I wanted to make sure that the work I put into something, actually made a difference in today's world. Rescue Pawz is focused on bringing awareness to animal shelter adoptions, in hopes to give every animal a second chance at finding their forever homes. The more involved I became with animal shelters, I realized exactly how many animals are never given a second chance, and I wanted to try and do everything I could, to change those statistics. So my whole purpose of this company is to give other dog or cat, moms and dads the opportunity to display to the world how much they love their animals, while knowing their money is being put to good use. 

25% of all profits from our store will be donated to local animal shelters in San Diego, CA.
