The answer is simple, YOU ARE SAVING A DOG’S LIFE!! Each year in the United
States alone, millions of unwanted pets are turned over to animal shelters around the
country. Of these animals, roughly 70% are put to death because nobody wants them.
That is a HUGE, HORRIBLE number.
2. Moving and can’t take dog to new location
3. Do not have enough time to care for the dog
4. Behavior problems
Unfortunately, some people view rescues as dogs that are not wanted due to behavioral
problems. Well I’m here to tell you that is simply not true! Most shelter dogs are well
behaved, sweet animals who just need a second chance. This is not to say that every
rescue dog is perfect. Some need a lot of tender loving care, socialization and more

If you are thinking about adding a new fur-friend to your family,PLEASEconsider
adoption from a local shelter or rescue group. To view some dogs that are currently
available for adoption, please visit the Rescue and Sanctuary Links page.
If you are not ready to adopt but want to help, consider making a donation to a local
rescue group or becoming a foster parent! Most rescue organizations survive solely on
the kindness of donors, volunteers and foster parents.
Adoption is the BEST Option!!!
Below are a few of the animals I have rescued over the years. Each and every one has
been a special blessing.
