Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:OGR is committed to saving the lives of the rescue dogs. However unfortunately I'm sad to announce that Our Gang Rescue can no longer help any more homeless or soon-to-be homeless dogs for quite some time. Our Gang Rescue has relocated and needs to re-establish the rescue environment.
Our Gang Rescue is a home-based/ foster rescue (not a shelter or brick & mortar building). It was started by friends with a common desire to save dogs for dying. Over the course of time, it's came down to one foster home. The sacrifices and turmoil that has occurred over the years and most currently the move to save DPH@B dogs has finally caught up. The foster home is suffering from financial, physical, emotional, and social hardship. The rescue efforts have primarily been supported out-of-pocket with very little help from public donations. Donations from the public can be counted on one hand and OGR greatly appreciates those generous gifts.
Until OGR can achieve 501(c)3 status to receive assistance from grants and get established more, I'm am sorry I just can't do any more.
Please remember to support your smaller rescues. There are many who do amazing work that are not as popular or well known.
Our Gang Rescue is looking for wonderful homes who will make a life time commitment to an adoptable dogs. Some times our dogs do not display negative behavior while in the rescue care, but could change in a different environment...ie. housebreaking issues, destructive chewing, dog aggression. I will be upfront and honest about each dog regardless good or bad.

About Our Rescue Group:Our Gang Rescue is FULL, sorry for any inconvenience this may cause on your behalf, but OGR has reached it's limited for rescue. As painful as this may sound, placing your family member into a shelter may be its best hope for adoption or rescue. If the surrender is not urgent, OGR can courtesy post your pet, as well as do the screening. Please remember there are worse fates that could happen to your pet than the shelter. OGR also can no longer take in dogs with aggression issues (dog or human) or have crating issues.
If you are having aggression issues with your dog, please read the following blog on Recognizing, Preventing, and Handling Dog Aggression
Our Gang Rescue is a small foster/home-based rescue dedicated to the rescue of any abused, neglected & unwanted dogs or puppies...primary Pit Bulls. Our Gang Rescue was started in 2010 as result of mutual friends sharing a common bond of loving dogs.
Our Gang Rescue does not operate as a 501(c)3, nonprofit rescue group; however, we are NOT-FOR-PROFIT. As a not-for-profit rescue, OGR use non-tax deductible donations to help fund rescue; veterinary care; spay & neutering of rescue dogs and TNR of feral cats. Our Gang Rescue is 100% spay/neutering prior to adoption, as well as vaccinated (rabies and distemper/parvo combo), heartworm checked, dewormed, and microchipped. When required, OGR will treat our rescues for additional medical well being and any other veterinary care necessary for the health of the animal. To help support us, your donations to Our Gang Rescue can made directly to Noah's Ark of Colerain (513) 923-4400 or West Chester (513) 779-6100.
Our Gang Rescue is not a shelter nor are boarding facilities used. All of the dogs are housed within a real home as family members. This allows them to learn house rules and crate-training. When necessary, OGR will provide sanctuary to a dog who we feel is not adoptable.
Our Gang Rescue are not vets, trainers, or behaviorist. OGR identifies a dog's breed based on what the shelter may have classified or our best uneducated guess. Our rescues are seen by a Vet to evaluate for health; however, if needed OGR will work with a training facility, if necessary to evaluate temperament for adoption.
The motto of Our Gang Rescue is ‘Helping Others’ – be it a dog, cat or human. We have spread the word, collected and transported dog food to shelters in various counties of Ohio and Kentucky in need of help. We helped save lives by transporting rescue dogs for other rescue groups. We help others through our accounts for low cost spay & neutering, vaccinations, or medical care; however, each individual is responsible to pay for their own services. We have also helped the community through hunger relief by providing donated pet food to the elderly or less than fortunate individual.
Any and/or all donations are non tax deductible, but please remember your support helps us care for our rescue companions.
Our primary focus on Pit Bulls and Pit Bull mixes, because these dogs are the most misunderstood, overly bred, abused, and killed in shelters. Through our advocate group Nati Pitties, we promote and encourage canine well-being and social awareness to build positive relationships between dogs and people. As well as dog bite prevention education and legislation of canine welfare. Under Liberty & Justice for Dogs, we have supported other advocate groups by protesting the injustice of inhumane treatment of shelter animals, breed specific legislation, limited pet ownership, or dogfighting.
As a rescuer and canine advocate, it is our duty to educate the public about the importance of spay & neutering pets to lessen the suffering of unwanted animals. Yearly, millions of animals are being killed in shelters because facilities are overwhelmed with animals and daily and backyard breeders and puppy peddlers out number responsible pet owners and rescuers.
Currently, more companion pets are being placed in shelters or needing rescue through no fault of their own…the poor economy, foreclosure, need to move, improper training, senior owned, and breed specific legislation. Please consider all the possibilities for your family member before giving up on them. Remember they gave you unconditional love, trust, and rely on you. We, rescuers, are not immune to society rules, regulations or ordinances; we just pray we can fly low enough under the radar to keep giving love to dogs in need.
