We cover Lee County to Roanoke in Virginia, and,

About Our Rescue Group:

Our Siberian Husky Rescue was new as of November 2003. We have grown from one to 9 fosters, and 25 supporters of our Rescue. As of 2009 we are down on fosters due to their adopting from 9 to 4. Our husky rescues are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, fecal and heartworm tested, and any medical problem is taken care of before adoption. Some of our rescues are on our "rescue sled dog team" that does dog sled demos at our events to educate the public on this breed. So we are fortunate in that even our Siberian Huskies help out their own breed. We temperament test the dogs, and try to work with them if time allows to find out obedience and personalities. We are always a phone call away from any Siberian Husky owner that may need a bit of help with their Siberian.

We believe educating the public about the Siberian Husky is important to be sure they find the best forever homes. We have and are IN NEED of foster homes, event help, and any help of a general nature such as checking on adopted dogs, and fund-raising.

Our next goal is to have an actual location which will help EARN funds for Community spay/neuter. It will include a Siberian Husky, (incl. Handicapped) rescue area. An education center that will also help educate the public and their children in a "fun way" about how to choose ANY dog. We will use the Siberian Husky breed as an example to explain the importance of the history and the characteristics of a breed. We will educate these things through use of a special historic setting, and a sled dog training area, to show how this particular breed was used not only thousands of years ago, but even today in Siberia. We will also stress the importance of spay/neuter and the pet overpopulation problem. Plus inform them of ways to get help if needed in the community.

All dogs have some talent even if it is to sit next to you and make you feel wanted. But all dogs are not for everyone, and everyone is not for all dogs.
WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF KNOWLEDGEABLE OF THE BREED FOSTER HOMES.

We also set up "Beginners Dog Sledding" classes in the fall and winter, so people can better understand what the Siberian Husky and dog sledding is all about.

Reference check and home check is done before adoption. Follow-ups will be done up to a year later.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
