Our popular fleece pajamas are restocked regularly and will
be available from now until spring. Check back frequently though,
as they sell VERY quickly! Check out our store for other clothes and
gifts as well.
The volunteer who sews our pajamas now has an Etsy store with lots more pajamas (featuring
exclusive Crested and Xolo fabrics not available anywhere else) and other fun hairless dog gifts.
Mention Bare Paws when ordering and the shop owner will donate a portion of the proceeds to us!
Our Bare Paws Rescue 2024 Calendar is still available. It is full of colorful, adorable
Cresteds and other hairless breeds. It will bring a smile to your face and makes a
great gift, too! Buy 2024 Calendar
We are a completely foster home-based rescue, covering the eastern half of the US. As such, we do not
have a shelter to visit. We adopt only to the eastern US. Please visit our Adoption pages for all the information
on our adoption process.
Need to rehome your dog? Please contact us.
We are always looking for great dedicated volunteers! Even if you are unable to foster, there
are still lots of ways you can make a difference. Please visit our Volunteer page for more information.
Our volunteers make fabulous pajamas and other clothes just perfect for your Crested or other small dog.
100% of proceeds benefit Bare Paws!

Meet Amy, our Bare Paws Rescue mascot. She is the reason we started the group.
This beautiful girl spent many years in a puppy mill, producing repeated litters of puppies.
She lived in a little cage in a barn with no sunlight, no exercise, and, saddest of all, no
affection or love. Fortunately, she was one of the lucky ones who was rescued from her
situation. But there are still millions of dogs living hopeless lives in puppy mills. Since the
majority of mills sell their puppies to pet stores or online, the best way to put an end to
puppy mills is to stop buying puppies at pet stores and research breeders carefully.
You are not "rescuing" that pet store puppy, you are creating a larger market for the
puppy millers. Please consider rescue. Amy was one of the lucky ones-she got out.
Her days were finally filled with sunshine. Please help others who haven't been so lucky-yet.
Amy sadly went to the Rainbow Bridge on 1/19/16. She enjoyed over 9 years in her
loving forever home and treasured every moment of her new life.

We are a group of individuals who are dedicated to the rescue, care and re-homing
of Chinese Cresteds and other hairless breeds in need. We provide compassionate aid,
veterinary care and loving temporary homes while working on finding
the ideal permanent situation for each dog. We also work to educate the public
about the breeds so that there maybe fewer Chinese Cresteds and other hairless breeds
needing to come into rescue.
