Promises Animal Rescue was founded to save German Shepherds and Labrador Retrievers. Our organization relies on the compassion and dedication of volunteers within surrounding communities to rescue, and find forever homes.

Promises Animal Rescue team has over 40 years of shared experience and encourages new volunteers who share the compassion for providing advice and help where needed. Promises seeks to provide our foster homes and volunteers with all necessary training and education so that rescued German Shepherds and Labrador Retrievers have a safe haven.

In addition to saving German Shepherds and Labrador Retrievers, we participate in community events, dog training, and education to encourage responsible pet ownership as well as pet population.

Promises Animal Rescue has an application process for adoption with our group. Application will be screened, references will be contacted. A volunteer with the rescue group will perform a home visit.

About Our Rescue Group:

P.A.R. is a volunteer dog rescue organization dedicated to rescuing German Shepherds and Labrador Retrievers in shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia, dogs given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect.

We are also dedicated to teaching awareness, education, help and mentoring the public and veterinarians the skills on caring for special need dogs with Mega Esophagus.

We place dogs in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process and will continue to be a helpful resource after you have welcomed your new pet into your life...

We are determined to keep administrative expenses extremely low so that virtually every dollar taken in goes directly to the care of the dogs. Our group remains interested in and committed to the welfare of the dog beyond the adoption process, with regards to care, education, resources, training. Fundamentally all donations will be spent directly on the care of the animals.

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.
