Local Pet Rescue Organization Opens New Location

Helena Lopez

Local pet adoption service Big Paws of the Ozarks has a new location in Northwest Arkansas.

  • More space: The new Big Paws’ location is on the corner of Township and Gregg in Fayetteville. Before the new location, the organization had 8 kennels in their barn for when foster homes weren’t available. The space now allows the service to compile everything it does under one roof.
  • Fresh starts: Big Paws of the Ozarks has a mission to assist in the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of big dogs who need new beginnings. The consolidation will make it easier for Big Paws to find forever homes for furry friends and focus on even more rescue.
