About Our Rescue Group...
Who we are: Save the Dalmatians and Others Canine Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to the rescue of Dalmatians from shelters, the promotion of adoptions of shelter Dalmatians and education of the public about the Dalmatian breed. We began in 1996 when founder Terri Haase and a friend started taking their Dalmatians to movie theaters during the showing of "101 Dalmatians" to distribute educational flyers in an attempt to stop impulse buying of Dalmatian puppies. Save the Dalmatians was formally incorporated as a California non-profit corporation in 1998. Our brochure provides more detail.
Further documentation on our 501(c)3 status may be requested by writing to Save the Dalmatians, 15507 S. Normandie Avenue #432, Gardena, CA 90247.
What we do: Save the Dalmatians and Others Canine Rescue specializes in rescuing Dalmatians, Dalmatian mixes and other breeds from shelters and finding new permanent homes for them.
We also provide placement support to others fostering rescued Dalmatians and to Dalmatian owners who wish to rehome their own Dalmatians.
Another very important function of our organization is public education about the Dalmatian breed. We disseminate information via mail, email, telephone and at adoption events. We also work with newspapers, radio and television to have information about Dalmatians published or broadcast.
Save the Dalmatians and Others Canine Rescue is an affiliate of the Dalmatian Assistance League. We are all unpaid volunteers.
