  • About Us

    Founded in 2022 by Kiara and Thomas Aslaksen, Paws and Reset Animal Rescue is a nonprofit organization committed to providing a second chance at life to animals in need in the Greater Charlotte area. Moved by their mutual love of animals and a recognition of the need for animal rescue efforts in their area, they decided to start their own nonprofit organization dedicated to doing just that.

    Not only do we rescue stray, abandoned, and sick animals, we also promote responsible pet ownership, with a particular focus and spay and neuter. By advocating for and educating others on the importance of spaying and neutering, we aim to reduce cat and dog overpopulation, improve the overall health and behavior of pets, and foster a more compassionate community.
