Ruston Dog Rescue

4 Paws Rescue, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of stray, abandoned, and neglected dogs of Lincoln Parish. We strive to end euthanasia by requiring all adopted animals to be spayed or neutered.


We provide community education strongly advocating spaying and neutering, heartworm prevention, and responsible pet ownership.


Our mission is to make sure our rescued animals are placed in loving and caring homes. Until that time we offer these precious creatures love, shelter, and care. We are here for them "until they all have a home".

I found a stray dog, can you take it?

In most cases, we will happily take the dog. However, every situation is unique. Additionally, we need to consider our space and resources before we take in another animal. It's best to give us a call before bringing the dog to us. 

How much do your adoptions cost?

Our adoption fees are $140 which includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, and heart worm prevention. 

How does the dog park work?

Our beautiful new dog park is open to the public every day from 7 am - 7 pm. The dog park entrance fee is only $5 per day and is located one entrance beyond our main entrance. You will see signs when you arrive. 

How do adoptions work?

First, you fill out an adoption application online or in the shelter. You must be 21 to adopt. Once your application is received you will be contacted for a phone interview.
