In Loving Memory
Our love for all animals, big and small, runs deep. Our rescue efforts began while healing from the sadness of losing our 13 year old Golden Retriever, Ruby. The healing began with a phone call from a friend nearly 1,000 miles away: ”Can you help us?” It was that desperate plea that opened our eyes to a problem that isn’t going away anytime soon. Pet overpopulation, animal abuse, neglect, and abandonment affect all of us and the communities we live in. Through our transports, we are able to save these animals from being euthanized in high kill shelters by carrying them to the safety of our rescue network.
Dog Rescue is all about teamwork. Each life saved represents countless hours of collaboration between volunteers and rescue organizations. Currently, our network spans the I-5 Corridor, from the Mexican to Canadian borders. Here, these various agencies provide the training, medical care, and fostering to help find a happy, healthy, and loving home for the dogs to live in for the rest of their lives. As of August 2017, over 5,000 dogs (and several cats) have been transported. In addition to transport, we work with several pet food suppliers to secure donated food for animals in our community. Donated food, supplies, and treats are distributed to food banks, shelters, rescue agencies, churches, veterans and the homeless.
In the sweet spirit of Ruby, we wake up every day with the hope of giving these animals a new leash on life.
