About Dr. Dolittle's Rescue Ranch

We are a non-profit 501(c)3, NO-KILL, home based rescue, established in 2005. We are dedicated to caring for the physical, emotional and medical needs of abandoned, neglected, abused, injured or ill animals. Then, through rehabilitating them, socializing them, and housebraking them,they are prepared for placement in permanent, loving homes. It has been operating through self funding, but due to such rapid expansion, this has become increasingly difficult. Any donations or volunteers would be greatly appreciated.

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.
