Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Adopters have come from as far as a 250 mile radius from Bartonsville, Pennsylvania.
About Our Rescue Group:We are a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) organization.
The inspiration behind our rescue is our American Bulldog, named Hannah.
Hannah was surrendered to a rescue that we were all very active in. She was an unwanted and badly injured little puppy who needed extensive medical treatment due to injuries suffered by being neglected. Hannah was turned down by other rescues and was scheduled to be euthanized. She was only a puppy.
One of our members decided to foster and adopt Hannah, starting all of us on our journey to start our own rescue which is how Hope for Hannah Rescue began. Hannah required extensive surgery and physical therapy. We realized that we needed to find new and better ways to raise funds for animals, especially animals in need of extensive medical care like Hannah.
We were also amazed when we talked to people that they had no knowledge of puppy mills, bad breeders, or in many cases, or that animal rescues even existed.
We decided that education had to be one of our most important activities, so we began working with the general public and more specifically, working with school children who are the pet owners of the future.
We did a series of assemblies at a local intermediate school and began working with the students on fundraisers for Hannah's care. They were motivated, interested, and now very aware of the importance of responsible pet ownership.
We hope to visit every school in Monroe County, Pennsylvania and the surrounding areas in forthcoming months and years as well as other public organizations.
Education is the key to change and this is what makes our organization different from most traditional pet rescues.
Although Hannah needed to have her injured leg amputated, she is a healthy and happy dog living with the rescue's founder. Saving Hannah is an example a heroic deed of the founder and of the Hope for Hannah's Mission statement: Hope, Help, and Educate.

Come join us at our biggest event of the year to help save dogs from neglect, abuse, and abandonment. It is the 2nd Annual Hope for Hannah Fundraiser founded by two young boys from Scranton, Pennsylvania named Michael and Nicholas. Michael and Nicholas adopted their dog, Cabela from the Hope for Hannah Rescue and have since been inspired to help dogs find loving homes. Their first fundraiser in August 2012 helped save the lives of 26 puppies.
This event will be held at 356 North Everett Avenue in Scranton, PA. It begins at 12pm and ends at 5pm on Sunday, September 22, 2013. Please join us in supporting the quest to save the lives of more dogs and puppies.

Our Adoption Process:An application is necessary to adopt or foster. Please contact us through this site, email us, or visit our “contact us” page on our website. Our dogs are up to date with their age appropriate vaccinations. The adoption fee varies depending on the dog.
We are always in need of fosters and the help is greatly appreciated. Most of the time our dogs only need a foster for one or two nights until the adopter comes to officially adopt the dog. We rely greatly on fosters because we do not have a facility.
