White German Shepherd Dog Rescue
White German Shepherd Dog Rescue
I've been working with Massas Creek Companion Animal Shelter:
Proud pet parent to Taffy (German Shepherd mix) and Missy (black lab/border collie mix)
Black Dogs Second Chance
This is actually a webpage belonging to a friend of mine. She is the national rescue coordinator for FCRSA but because of her role for the club she can only rescue purebreds using FCRSA funds..... however, we get lots of calls about flat coats as most shelters have never really seen a flat coat and they tend to label every long haired black dog as a flat coat. With that... we scour the ads on petfinder and anywhere else that we get a report of a flat coat in a shelter or an ad in the newspaper or listed anywhere.... if that dog is a flat coat we go and pull the dog and foster the dog until the dog is ready to be placed... there is a waiting list of folks who want rescue flat coats....
However, most of the dogs are not flat coats and over the years we have met many many many nice black dogs... unfortunately black dogs are not adopted as quickly as other dogs.... thus the creation of the website.... to let people know about these wonderful black dogs that need homes..... they are not purebreds... they are just nice black dogs that need a break......
I've spent time at the Eau Claire County Humane Association.
This is my local shelter. They deal with a wide variety of animals. Without donations, the fundung the county provides wouldn't keep them open. This is not a no-kill shelter though.
I dont volunteer there-wish I could but way too far away- but what I have seen they are very loving and concerned for their furbabies. They take in Dogs, cats and even a rabbit!
The Little Guild Of St.Francis
This is where I was able to find our new family member-
I work with A Different Breed. We are a 501C non-profit rescues.
The rescue we adopted both Chewy and Sandy from is http://www.castawaycritters.org
They are based in Harrisburg, PA.
The rescue I volunteer with doesn't have a dedicated webpage, simply a petfinder one. They are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) group and the director is a fantastic lady with tons of Pyr knowledge. Great Pyrenees Rescue of Central Illinois http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/IL88.html
I adopted my dog and volunteer at The Anti Cruelty Society in Chicago
Humane Society of Baltimore County
They are now raising money to remake their cat housing (which is pretty depressing right now): http://www.hsbcpets.org/home.php?sub...from=&ucat=35&
Well, this is probably a bit different from your usual rescue name posts.. Here is a Turkish rescue that houses 2000 dogs... I have been sending help monthly from the US using their wishlist system:
(to help, click on animated "kangurum" link -a well known Turkish grocery store chain-, order from their wishlist, and be done. of course, you'll have to guess what the -Turkish- items in the wishlist are - all the more fun LOL )
Featured in a Turkish newspaper
And has a few videos on youtube
So they are real, but not tax exempt of course :P
I volunteer with Eleventh Hour Rescue, which is based out of Morris County, NJ.
Our website is www.ehrdogs.org.
We focus on rescuing dogs from overcrowded kill-shelters where they are about to be euthanized and give them all the love and care they need until they are united with their forever home.
I foster with www.labs4rescue.com
I tend to look for black labs they are usually the last to be rescued.

I have not done rescue (yet), nor do I work with any rescue groups, but I do have several sites bookmarked as these are the groups I will consider working with when we are ready to actively seek a second dog.
Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue
Another Chance for English Setters
Above and Beyond English Setter Rescue
New England Brittany Rescue
New England Border Collie Rescue...I had to look for a long time to find their non-profit status, but I finally found the verification on their store link.
These all seem very good to me...obviously, you will know if I end up getting a dog from any of these groups so you can hear my experiences.
We volunteer for www.PurrsnPups.com, based out of Northern NJ and pulling puppies and pregnant/nursing moms out of high-kill shelters in the rural South.
Catahoula Rescue Inc
Coordinator at Large (North)
Twin Cities, MN Rottweiler and Pit Bull Rescue:
Arotta Love Plus
***New Sig Under Construction***
Jayda and Ozzie: Lovers of food, people, playtime and naptime.
My Camille came from Friends of Homeless Animals http://www.foha.org

Arizona beagle rescue
I always find beagles in the pound or so and I notify them so they can pull them. I'd love to help them out, but with two jobs, I need to wait till I have some more time on my hands!
Within 10 years I plan on posting MY rescue here. Look for "Second Chance Animal Rescue" and it'll be me
With a BIG picture of Chance as our mascot!
Rest in Peace MK, Mittens, and Toby.. mommy misses all of you<3
