Open Paws Pet Rescue was founded by Michael Agarwal after adopting his first own rescue dog, Molly. Molly had such an impact on Michael’s life and he realized the true need for more adoptions to lighten the burden of shelters.

Michael is joined by a team of expert animal behaviorists who all share his passion and love for our forgotten furry friends. The site was launched to create awareness about the plight of local shelters, and to educate our community on how to adopt an abandoned dog successfully.

When you join our site, you can expect loads of information from how to train your rescue, to what to expect. We’ll also share great resources that you can use if you would like to adopt a pet.
