About us

 Welcome to Paws for Julia. We are a 501(c)(3)c3 non-profit organization. We are a foster base rescue, so all our dogs are in a home learning environment.


 Who is Julia you ask! and why the name Paws for Julia? Let's take a moment to formally introduce ourselves. Julia Sounders, founder of Kate's Rescue for Animals passed away suddenly on September 20, 2021. The rescue community lost and amazing person that day. Kate's Rescue volunteers attempted to move forward; however, it became clear that there were different goals. Some wanted to follow in Julia's footsteps, saving those animals who needed a little more help than others. Other volunteers had different ideas and plans; therefor, a parting of ways occurred. We decided to honor Julia and her wishes the best way we knew how. This is how "Paws for Julia Rescue" was formed we know we have a huge footsteps to follow, but we will do everything we possibly can to make her proud. We want to keep her dream of alive in her memory. Julia was a mentor to most of us and we loved her dearly. paws for Julia is a tribute to our dear friend.
