As much as we love Independence Day, the July 4th holiday also results in the highest shelter intake wave of the year. The barrage of fireworks and outdoor activities leads to a high number of runaway dogs. As a result, on July 5th shelters can become overwhelmed with lost lost pups.
To make sure there is space for these lost dogs, we want to encourage you to help clear the shelters for the upcoming holiday. If you’re able to foster a pup, even if it’s just for a few days, you will be providing valuable space for the lost pups.
The more space we can provide, the more time rescue groups will have to reunite these dogs with their families!
Have a happy and safe July 4th and thank you, as always, for helping us change the world for every pup.
This amazing group focuses on the "underdogs" of the rescue world. Bully breeds with special needs. Unfortunately, the truth is that bully breeds or even dogs that are misidentified as pit bulls spend more time in the shelter than their counterparts of other breeds. The situation is even more dire for pit bulls with special needs, such as medical or behavioral issues.
From love at first sight, to long walks together, to lessons on how eating your favorite shoes is NOT acceptable, every rescue pup has their own inspiring story to tell and we want to hear and share every last bit! Today, meet the inspiring and heartwarming pup, Tonka!
On December 30th, over 100 neglected doodles were found living in the most horrific conditions as part of a puppy mill based in Mexico. Fortunately, our Rescue Roast partner The Animal Pad was ready, willing, and able to step in and save the lives of these amazing pups!
