Helping 250 Dogs Get Adopted This Year

Puppy In Kennel

Every year animal shelters around the nation take in 5 million to 7 million companion animals and 3 million to 4 million are euthanized.  It’s a truly sad statistic and extremely overwhelming if you stop and think how you can help.

However it’s probably Pablo Picasso who said it best when he said, “Action is the foundational key to all success. “  So we are choosing to act and make a difference for as many dogs as we can.  If you are interested in helping here’s how..

The Plan

There are approximately 5,000 animal shelters and humane societies around the country and we are looking to partner with at least one in each of the 50 states. We will work directly with that shelter to raise funds and awareness in their community.  Our goal will be to help each of those shelters adopt to a loving family at least 5 of the dogs in their care.

We also will be providing training courses at no cost to people who adopt dogs from the shelters we partner with. Many times the reasons dogs are surrendered to shelters is because they have not been properly trained which lead behavior issues that people either can’t or wont deal with. If we can help with the training that should help keep a few more dogs out of shelters.

Where You Come In

If you know someone at your local animal shelter whom you think might be interested in working with us please pass along our information. If you are affiliated yourself with a shelter please leave your name in the comments section and we’ll get in touch with you.

If you don’t have any connections with your local shelter we would strongly encourage you to stop by sometime.  They are always looking for volunteers and you are guaranteed to leave feeling happier than when you arrived. Who knows..you might find a new best friend. 😉

We also would encourage you to donate if you can. Either to your local shelter or the ASPCA. Funds are always tight for these organizations and anything you can do would be a huge help!

    I recently volunteered to foster for the Chihuahua Rescue Society in San Diego, CA. The chi I am fostering is not potty trained, has no clue what a leash is, is afraid of men, and goes crazy barking and growling at other dogs (her age is determined to be 6-8 years old). Can I participate in the training and share it with the other fosters?

    Wright Way Rescue in Niles, IL. is truly an amazing rescue shelter. I adopted my beagle mix, Oliver, from them two years ago. They are just a group of wonderful kind dedicated people. I think they would really love the help of adopting out more puppies and kittens. Good luck!!

    Hi, My name is Rosa Burton. I am from Kwa Zulu Natal in South Africa. I own a small Kennel Free boarding for dogs service and have got all my dog training from DVDs,books and the web. I have put all the information in to practice with great success. I am in constant contact with the SPCA here at the South Coast and will pass the information on. I will mail you their response along with their details. I would love to be apart of your plans so please let me know what you need.

    Thanks
    Rosa

    Hello, my name is Pat Thomas, and I volunteer and am on the board of a no kill shelter in rural Bryson City, NC, called PAWS Bryson City. We have many challenges in this area, with minimum volunteers and virtually no support from the local government. We do not have an animal control facility in our county, and bear the burden of all homeless, neglected and surrendered animals in our area as a non profit. The county is one of the poorest in the state. Having a resource such as this would be a huge asset to us, and could truly help pet owners who would have otherwise surrendered their pet. We would love to be considered for this beneficial partnership. If more information could be shared, I’d love to receive it.
    Thank you in advance,
    Pat

    Hi, my name is Stacy T. Cross. SANG, Save The Animals Of NE Georgia, Inc. is a nonprofit rescue that greatly needs help!!! My mom, Susan Tamburino, was used to rescuing dogs around the house, but one day went to the local vets office and they were having to put dogs down because they had no room for the rescues because they had to leave room available for their clients. That was it!!! Susan was soo upset she had to start putting kennels on her property for the rescues!! Ofcourse there are always sooo many that need help. In the three years since SANG was born, we have rescued over 260 dogs; have an indoor facility for the inclement weather; and 8 outdoor kennels for the fresh air. We run solely on donations!!! We have recently partnered with the PetSmart in Flowery Branch, Georgia every other Saturday to help get dogs adopted and gain exposure for the rescue. Our moto: When you adopt a dog you really save two lives; the one you adopt and the one that takes its place in the rescue!!! Please help us help the animals!!!!!!
    Thank you,
    Stacy T. Cross
    Secretary, SANG, Inc,
