About AMMAR - Appalachian Mountain ManTrailing & Rescue
About Our Rescue Group...
AMMAR was founded On November 13th 2013 and registered with the West Virginia Secretary of States Office on that date, control # 9A34A, as a West Virginia Non Profit Incorporation. Our main functions are three;
1) To serve as a Hound breed, Safe haven, and Rescue
2) To assist local emergency management with missing persons recovery assistance, ManTrailing. Our volunteers are active with several emergency response agencies, serving the publics needs.
3) To educate the public about the Bloodhound Breed of dogs.
Our major source of funding is through public donations and fund raisers, which we rely on for everyday operations. AMMAR is an all Volunteer Organization. The organizers/ board members/ contributors are not compensated, as to direct virtually all the funds to the hounds.

Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption process starts with our marketing team, From there, it transitions into the actual adoption application, 3 pages of application and the actual adoption contract / agreement. Home checks can be done when questionable. Vet references are always checked, and the individuals are also background checked for any animal related charges. AMMAR, rescues dogs from shelters up and down the east coast regardless of medical conditions. We then treat or rehabilitate these animals to ready them for their new lives. We also accept owner surrenders. In addition, we also rescue litters of puppies or mothers waiting to whelp that litter. Our adoption fees are generally in the $200-$400 range, this is written into our corporate bylaws. AMMAR also has transport assistance to get these hounds to their new homes. Generally, at no additional charge to the adopter.
