Moving Paws Inc is a not for profit small breed dog rescue group located in Adelaide, we are a registered charity with a dedicated team of doggy lovers who re-home furkids looking for their second chance.

We assist dogs in country pounds, those requiring private re-homing and we also have a working relationship with the RSPCASA.

Each pooch is cared for in a loving home environment and treated as one of the family, they are provided with the best vet care, grooming, training and socialisation.

Moving Paws helps a lot of special needs and senior doggies and we are committed to making sure they live out their twilight years with love and dignity.

** please note we do not have a public facility that can be visited **

5 years ago today I farewelled the most inspirational boy in the world!

I adore you Toby 💙 the face of MP

Our time together was too short but what we shared I cherish every single day.

You taught me "to never give up".
To give opportunities where most wouldn't.
So many doggies owe their lives to you for that reason.

I miss you terribly but I am so grateful for what we shared, the bond we had and our time together xxxx

Always and forever my little man. 💙

On Tuesday night our dear furever man, Dino had his 6 monthly check up.

We believe it is just the 3rd time in his life he has been to the vet.

His first 2 visits, I was not with him and we had no idea his previous owner had never socialised him.

6 months ago Dino was diagnosed with prostate cancer and growths in his liver and bladder.

I have never seen a dog so traumatised going to the vet - he defacted himself, he lunged, he tried to bite, he looked like hell!

It took the vet and myself time and patience to get Dino in a towel and then get two muzzles on him and calm enough for his examination.

His blood results were amazingly good. He does have some increased levels, but for a dog that was sent home for pallitive care 6 months ago he's doing extremely well. We are going to add some medication to his diet and continue to make sure he gets all he needs to stay as healthy as he can.

I just wanted to make a serious point dog ownership is far more than just feeding and walking your dog and giving it a few pats.

Our role as owners is to socialise our dogs, make them comfortable to visit places, ride in the car, go to the vet, get groomed - this starts from the day we adopt them. Unfortunately when we rescue animals they came with a past and we have to work through those issues.

Dino lived with an elderly man all his life, he only knew that man. When he had to move to nursing care, family didn't want Dino, friends didn't want Dino, in fact once he was handed over they have never responded to a single message I have sent them.

It is imperative for dogs not to be afraid of normal day to day activities, things happen, just like Dino's owner and without a rescue group, Dino would have had no other options.

We are blessed to have such a rapport with our vet clinic and they understand the importance of helping these cases - Dr. Lucie did an amazing job with Dino and for that we are truly thankful.

Please make sure you have a rapport with your vet. Vets are there to help.

If you know elderly people with pets please make sure that they are being walked, socialised, groomed and interacted with - what if an ambulance needs to enter the house? are family members and friends familiar with the traits of the dog?

It is not the dogs fault - it is the owners!

Meanwhile, Dino is having a holiday at HQ for a few weeks while his furever foster Mumma is away. He is ruling the roost!!!!
