Hi everyone! My name is Jack. The acc said I was mean and almost killed me because I could smell the death and fear of the thousands of paws that walked those halls .The truth is, I don't have a bad bone in my body. In fact, all I want is to love and be loved. Sadly, the family that dumped me at the shelter to be killed didn't feel this way about me. They allowed me to become obese and unhealthy. I should be approximately 30lbs and I came into the rescue weighing 49lbs. That is SO unhealthy for a dog my size.

I am a chi/ jrt mix, 3 years old, and ready to find my true forever home. I am a bit fearful, but this is because of the way I was treated in the past. I can live with other dogs but I'm better with a dog who is low energy. I I go into avoidance when I see them, so a laid back canine companion would be best. At least until I lose some more lb's and have more energy to play! I have been going for long walks every day and am already starting to drop some weight!

About Road to Home Rescue Support - Long Island, NY

About Our Rescue Group...

Road to Home was started to be able to focus on animals in need and to provide support to local rescues. After years of working in shelters and with rescues, we decided starting our own rescue was the best way to do what we do best! We are a 100 percent non-profit and 100 percent of the money we raise goes towards animals in need. Our 5013c is pending. Here’s what we will focus on:

-Providing guidance and support for re-homing an animal.
-Providing medical attention, training, spay/neuter, and food/supplies to a homeless animal.
-Pulling an animal from a euthanasia list or from an unsafe situation and placing them in a foster or permanent home.
-Working with rescues and shelters to facilitate adoptions by doing home checks, adoption applications, and networking to find foster or permanent homes for animals in need.
-Working with rescues and shelters to coordinate adoption events, food drives, and fundraisers.
-Raising money through a Chip-In to help specific dogs with training, medical needs, and adoption.
-Raising funds that can be allocated to specific needs of other rescues and shelters (including medical expenses, training expenses, food, and transport) as well as pledging money to animals in jeopardy of euthanasia.
