where we are extending life to our furry children.
Welcome to Big Paws of the Ozarks
Thank you for visiting the page to learn more about our rescue. We are so happy you are here. You will find an album dedicated to our adoptable dogs on our Facebook page.
We are a 501c3, nonprofit organization based in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Currently, we rely solely on foster homes to facilitate the transition between the rescue and re-homing process. All of our dogs live in foster homes where they learn what it is like to be a part of the family. It is our priority to focus on large breed dogs, typically at least 40 pounds. We also put an emphasis on those who have been in the shelter the longest. These dogs have a higher rate of euthanasia and need us to save them. Our dogs come from overfull shelters, have been found abandoned, or occasionally we take owner surrenders. BPOZ works diligently to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home deserving dogs who have found themselves homeless.
