About Riverside Rescue

Riverside Rescue was formed because of the tremendous amount of stray canines in the area. Taking them to the county shelter is not an option because they kill over 70% of the companions that enter their system! Over 1,000 dogs and cats are killed each month by Riverside County!

Note: The Riverside city/county shelter now has a new director, Robert Miller. He has a tough job ahead of him correcting the errors of the past but we are hoping for the best. Hopefully the numbers of companions killed will start dropping. When new statistics are available we will post them.

Our goal is first and foremost to find the companion a fantastic forever home. We have a very strict screening process to help ensure this.

Our second goal is to make sure you are happy with your companion. After all, if you are not happy, the companion will not be happy either. We even offer a 30 day money back guarantee.

Riverside Rescue does not have kennels. All of our canine companions live together on 2 acres of fenced property. This helps socialize the companions with other canines and prevents them from getting 'kennel fever'. This also gives us the opportunity to observe each companions behavior and how they interact with other canines.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
