Thankfully, many compassionate individuals and rescue organizations are stepping in to help save these desperate animals. Some even provide foster care in the private homes of volunteers until adoptions can be arranged. Won't you please consider helping? If you are looking for a new pet, please consider adopting from a local rescue shelter instead of purchasing your pet from a store or breeder.
Below are links to a number of agencies and organizations websites that can assist you in locating an adoption shelter or humane society near you. Please let us know of any worthy organizations you would like us to add, or if you discover a link that is no longer working. Thank you.
