Thousands of wonderful companion animals, mutts and pure breeds of all ages, size and personality, are abandoned each year simply because their previous guardians were unprepared or uninformed about how to care for them.
Animal rescue groups are diligent in ensuring that all pets are suitably matched for your family and lifestyle. There are also breed specific rescue groups who specialize in only one breed – they are experts in their knowledge of that breed.
Foster homes and families are crucial to many rescue groups. They provide a safe temporary home for animals in need. Foster-based rescue groups provide food, supplies, medications and veterinary care for their animals. Fostering is a very fulfilling and rewarding way to help save the life of an animal, as well as preparing them for their forever home.
