Peace4Paws is happy to announce that...



Thank you for your help with Beauty’s FHO surgery and physical therapy bills. She is doing great, please see her success story on Happy Tails!

However we now have Clairisse who has received FHO surgery and physical therapy and needs your financial assistance and a forever home. 

Please DON’T turn away from Clarisse – any little effort can help!!

Clarisse is what we now call 6 year old Treeing Walker Coonhound because she is just so graceful and elegant!  When you reach for the leash Clarisse extends her neck and lifts her head high, almost regally.  She loves to go for the walk! She almost trots.  She is one happy and appreciative girl! Less than one year ago Clarisse was hit by a car and dumped in a shelter emotionally and physically in pain.  But, with the support of The Way Home Rescue of Kentucky, Clarisse’s situation was brought to the attention of Peace4Paws who immediately rescued her!! She was completely vetted in Kentucky and then when she -arrived in NJ and started to adjust to her new environment - she went to Oradell Animal Hospital to receive FHO surgery from a top orthopedic vet Dr. Miller.  She is doing so well. Thanks to that and her indomitable spirit she runs and leaps and gallops and simply loves to be alive.  She is a pleasure to be around. She does seem to warm up to females quicker than males. She gets along great with other dogs. She enjoys cars. She knows how to use a doggy door and is crate trained. She is housebroken. She is in great health, up to date on all her vaccinations, spayed and ready to settle into her loving forever home. She has had a few litters of puppies, so she is happy to just be all about Clarisse! She still has some fear issues so we recommend experienced dog handlers.  She gets over her fears pretty fast.  She is usually quite confidant! We think she would be best with a family who has children over 11 and a fenced in backyard.  She is very protective of the home and super affectionate too.  To apply to adopt Clarisse please click below.
