Areas Revolution Rescue Serves

Revolution Rescue is all volunteer based out of Lincoln, Nebraska and is in the process of becoming a 501(c)3 non-profit group.

A project that started years ago and officially launched in 2015, Revolution Rescue is an all breed dog and cat rescue that focuses on giving shelter pets a second chance. Many times, lost or surrendered animals that end up in unfamiliar surroundings find themselves terrified, withdrawn, and even aggressive, while their normal temperament would be the complete opposite otherwise. These are the ones that are often overlooked by potential adopters and unnecessarily euthanized in the shelter systems. By working with local Humane Societies and shelters, Revolution Rescue is able to acquire these pets and place them in loving foster homes until their forever homes are found, which gives them a chance to shine and ultimately, saves their lives. Please consider adopting a companion animal today. After all...rescue is the best breed.

Revolution Rescue's Adoption Process

Pet Adoption Fees.

These services would ordinarily run up a bill well over $250, so you’re actually getting quite a bargain by adopting from us! Of course, donations on top of the adoption fees are always welcome, since many times we must provide additional medical care such as surgery for injuries or congenital problems, X-rays, blood panels, fecal tests, and treatments for any infections or viruses. Remember though, all veterinary care once you’ve adopted a new companion into your family, is your responsibility for the life of your pet.

Kittens and Adult Cats: $100
Puppies and Adult Dogs: $175+

Pet Adoption Process:

Step 1: Please complete and submit the Adoption Application. Filling out the adoption application is NOT a commitment to adopt: it is simply the first step in the process. You may fill out the application online or if you prefer to put pen to paper, just email us and we will send one to you via mail.

Step 2: Once we receive your application, it will be reviewed by a Revolution Rescue team member. We are not able to accept every application for adoption and we reserve the right to reject applications without reason. Adoption applications are PROCESSED on a first come first serve basis but are APPROVED based on which applicant is the best match for the animal and family. Revolution Rescue will perform a vet check and reference check (no exceptions). WE WILL call your vet and make sure all animals in your care are current on their vaccinations, rabies, on a monthly heart worm preventative and spayed/neutered. We also require 2 personal references that are not family related.

Step 3: If your application is approved, a Revolution Rescue team member will be contacting you to schedule a home visit. Revolution Rescue has guidelines for application acceptance and realizes that your opinion may differ from ours. Please understand that we will always have the best interests in mind for our animals.

Step 4: When the home visit passes, we will schedule you for a “meet & greet” with the desired animal. Your entire family will meet the potential candidate and make sure it’s a good match for you and your family’s lifestyle.

Step 5: With the meet and greet thumbs up, Revolution Rescue will set up a “sleep over”. Our “sleep over” program has been quite successful with our adoption process. We believe it is important for the potential family to spend quality time in their own home, and a few hours just aren’t enough to make sure if our animal will be the right fit. It also gives you the opportunity to bond with your potential new family member.

Step 6: The final step! If the “sleep over" was a huge success, we will then approve your adoption application. One of our team members will set up a time to meet you at your home and finalize the adoption. A contract will be required. Our contract is a legal-binding document that spells out your responsibilities as the owner of the pet you are adopting. In addition, the contract provides you with a record for the medical history that Revolution Rescue provided for the animal while in our care.

About Revolution Rescue

Mission Statement
It is Revolution Rescue’s sole drive and mission to help prevent cruelty to animals by providing exceptional foster care and re-homing services for homeless dogs and cats, concentrating on those who have ended up on the line in area shelters and throughout the states. We strive to educate the public on unfair legislation towards certain breeds, companion animal overpopulation, and the alternatives of fostering and re-homing as a solution to help end the killing of adoptable animals. Because they all deserve a chance.

Our Story
The backbone of this rescue started as a small network of friends who were determined to help end and prevent cruelty by lessening the number of animals in need, especially the ones in the shelter systems. The euthanasia statistics are staggering. Far too many animals are not given a chance, mainly due to lack of space, and we are changing by one.

We will continue to fight Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) towards the many dogs that carry the unfair stigma of being a “bully breed”. If more people can open their minds and their hearts, and give these amazing animals a chance, we can reduce the number being held (and not making it out of) our shelters.

We are a team devoted to each other and to animal rescue.

Our Promise
We are dedicated to making a positive difference for any and all animals that come into Revolution Rescue, so that the transition to their forever home will go as smoothly as possible. We encourage everyone to save the life of a shelter pet by adopting. Supporting breeders by purchasing animals from pet stores, etc…only adds to the problem and is how so many end up facing certain death.

We promise you won’t be sorry. Rescue is the best breed!
