Muddy Paws Farm – A Rescue Center for Dogs in Mt. Airy, MD


Visit us during events and volunteer opportunities…

Muddy Paws Farm is PetConnect Rescue’s refuge for homeless dogs on their path to new, loving forever homes. This transitional residence is a beautiful 5 acre property located in Mt Airy, MD. The facility has been in operation since 2010 and is currently a way station for some of our dogs arriving from shelters. A resident caretaker oversees the home, the property, and care of the dogs, essentially creating a hybrid between a temporary shelter and large, loving foster home situation.

In addition to giving animals a temporary home, Muddy Paws serves as a site for adoption and fundraising events, as well as small community gatherings. It is also a location for volunteers to interact directly with our rescued dogs and learn new training and socialization techniques. Donated items such as leashes, collars, food, bedding and crates are kept here, giving adoption coordinators and foster families a centralized location for obtaining supplies.

We are excited about the volunteer opportunities at Muddy Paws. We invite and encourage our wonderful volunteers to consider committing to a regular schedule, such as once a week or twice a month visits.
