PAWFECT LIFE RESCUE
Pawfect Life Rescue is a Massachusetts-based 501(C)3 non profit shelterless dog rescue that was established in May, 2013. We are a dedicated network of volunteers whose mission is to rescue stray dogs and place them in responsible loving homes.

In May of 2013, Julie established Pawfect Life Rescue to help save dogs lives by offering a truly unique adoption experience that focuses on both dog & adopter and the ability to effectively enhance the quality of life for dog lovers in her community. She also went back to school, graduating from Animal Behavior College in the fall of 2013, and is now a certified dog trainer. Julie lives with her husband (Jim), their two sons (Ben & Mason) and their two dogs (Harley & Riley) in Uxbridge, MA. She aspires to make a difference in the lives she touches by connecting amazing rescue pups with equally amazing adopters and creating a community of dog lovers who can share in the joys of owning a rescue pup!
“Did you ever wake up and ask yourself WHY? Why am I here, what good am I doing in this world – what kind of legacy will I leave for my family? My ah-ha moment was last year when I got together with some fantastic rescue women and traveled down to Alabama……..and what I saw changed my life forever! Words can’t express the ultimate perfection of the lifestyle we live up here in Massachusetts when compared to some of the situations I saw down south. Up here we see squirrels everywhere……down south you see dogs everywhere…….and a band of animal rescuers who wake up every day to the inconceivable and give their all thru blood, sweat and tears to make a difference! Life will always bring good times and bad but I choose to wake up and enjoy the day – to live life like someone left the gate open……..to go outside with my kids and my dogs and Run, Fetch, Play!”
Here’s to the dog that changed my life……….because without you, life would not have been complete………….
