Local animal rescue gives animals a second chance at a forever home

PawZabilities Animal Rescue is on a mission to save homeless animals in Pennsylvania, "one paw at a time". The Yardley non-profit provides medical assistance and shelter for dogs (and soon, cats!) who were abandoned, surrendered, or at risk for abuse or neglect. Each rescue is spayed or neutered, receives appropriate medical care, and is placed in a nurturing foster home until they are matched with the perfect “furever” family!

Andrea Forconi, president of PawZabiliites, founded the rescue in 2018. To date, Andrea and her team have rescued over 300 dogs and puppies. The group also provides education about responsible pet ownership in an effort to end animal neglect and abuse. “In addition to re-homing our animals, we try to educate the public on low cost spay and neuter options and have recently started a curbside kibble program to assist dog and cat owners who are unable to afford food for their pets." The success of PawZabilities has been a labor of love for Andrea, and one that she does not take for granted.

“Being able to save animals who have had a rough start in life and giving them their happily ever after has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life."  

We are pleased to introduce you to several of the pawzatively adorable dogs who are currently looking for a loving family of their own. Check out the PawZabilites Pa website for the most up-to-date list of available pets and read their incredible stories.

Harlequin (aka "Quinn"), Breed: Catahoula

Looking for a dog who would LOVE to go on a hike with you? Well then, 4 year old Quinn is your guy. His perfect match would be a family who lives in a house with lots of room to romp and play - it's his favorite pastime! Quinn has done a fabulous job with other dogs with slow and proper introductions. He would love to find an active family, as he is passionate about the outdoors and going for long walks. He is great on a leash and is excited to learn the ways of the world. He loves to cuddle, but he is not a couch potato by any means. Quinn needs someone with large breed experienced who is willing to work with him so he can be his very best. We promise you if you take a chance on Quinn he will pay you back tenfold. He truly is an amazing dog. 

Jake, Breed: Mixed

Jake is a 9 month old handsome boy looking for his forever family. DNA test results show that Jake is an awesome mix of English Setter (yes you heard right - English Setter!), American Staffordshire Terrier and Bull Staffordshire Terrier. Jake is all about a good time and loves to play and romp. He would make an excellent hiking or running partner. He is house broken and crate trained, but he is still very much a puppy and would be happiest with an active family to give him the exercise and care young dogs need. He is good with other larger dogs, and kiddos, but would prefer not to share his world with smaller pets. If you are looking for a fun, handsome fella to spend your days with, and the sweetest kisses and cuddles at night, Jake is your man. 

Ross, Breed: Mixed

Weighing in at approximately 35 pounds, Ross is quite a unique little guy, boasting an eclectic mix of breeds, including American Staffordshire terrier, Bulldog, Lab, and Rat Terrier! He is working hard to become the perfect little gentleman. He is crate trained, walks well with a harness, and knows commands such as sit, paw, and lay down. He is an adventurous boy who enjoys the water and road trips, but more than anything, he LOVES simply being outside and running around. Ross adores playing fetch, but is still mastering the art of giving the ball/toy back. Best of all, he gets the “zoomies” at almost the same time every night! He is up-to-date on his shots, neutered, micro-chipped, and patiently awaiting a place to call home.  

Rowdy, Breed: Boxer mix

Meet the handsome,1 year old, Rowdy! He has been a fabulous house guest in his foster home where he is crate trained and housebroken, and mastering basic commands. Rowdy did not have a lot of structure early in his life, so he is working really hard to be the best boy. His forever family will need to continue to incorporate training into his daily routine as he has thrived with a structured environment. Rowdy is very energetic and fun loving; he enjoys playing and running around the yard. He absolutely LOVES other dogs and would be great with an active doggie sibling. Rowdy has lived with young children, but is better suited for families with older children as he is a strong fella and still young. He attends doggie day care and has made many friends - everyone who meets him can't say enough about how lovable he is!

Finding homes for animals in need requires significant planning and effort from a dedicated staff of volunteers, and the generosity of donors who keep the organization running smoothly. PawZabilities is always looking for potential adopters, foster families and volunteers who are willing to open their hearts and homes to help our furry friends!
