About Our Rescue Group:This is an all volunteer organization dedicated to the improvement of the lives of our best friends.
Currently millions of pets are euthanized every year due to over population. In fact, each person in the U.S would have to take 8-9 dogs or cats per person for all of the homeless pets to be adopted. To decrease the number of pets euthanized each year it is important to educate people about the importance of spaying and neutering our pets. Also, with the help of volunteers and donations, we can help to arrange low cost spay and neuter programs, thus providing these services to those who could not otherwise afford them. Through education and spay/neuter programs we can help to combat the problem of over population. It is the national goal within animal rescue organizations that this will be a no kill nation by 2015. We will strive to do our part with your help.
For those dogs already in distress, our goal is to rescue homeless and surrendered dogs. With the support of donations and the hard work of volunteers, we can rescue and rehabilitate dogs in need. We will provide shelter, veterinary care, love, toys, food, and training for those who are in need. In addition, we work to find forever homes for each dog and, once adopted, we support the adoptive owners so the adjustment process is successful and the new family member is a permanent member.
Finally, pitbull breeds are in grave distress: of all dogs in shelters, 70-75% are pit bulls or pit bull mixes. Only 1 in 600 dogs of this breed will find a home and the remainder are euthanized. Due to the pervasive negative publicity surrounding this breed, there is a reluctance to allow one to become a family member. Yet in the past, this breed was the most popular in the country; the immortalized as the marine mascot; and was affectionately known as "the nanny dog". Through the work of dedicated animal groups such as Bestfriends Animal Society, BAD RAP and many others, this amazing breed is being given a chance to correct the negative reputation they have been unjustly branded with. Remember: a dog's behavior is a reflection of the personality traits of his or her owner and not the reverse.
