Animal Rescue Site Missions
The triumphs and struggles facing the animal rescue site mission.
Everyday, thousands of animals are left abandoned, neglected, or abused. The United States is suffering from a pet overpopulation crisis. Each year, millions of animals are euthanized.
The mission of animal rescue is to stop the abuse and neglect of defenseless animals, and find loving homes for pets. Animal rescue is made up of ordinary people who want to help suffering pets. By fostering, providing veterinary care, and finding homes, rescuers all over the nation are fighting the battle of pet abuse.
Thousands of dogs are born everyday in the United States. Dog rescue is one of the biggest aspects in animal rescue. Many dogs are abandoned by their owners and are left in shelters or even on the streets. Most of the dogs that come into shelters will be euthanized, but thanks to dog rescue, many of these dogs do eventually find a stable home.
There are many reasons that the United States is overpopulated with pets. Thousands of breeders across the nation continue to breed dogs for high profits. Many times, these animals live in horrid conditions and are starving and abused. Once these pets are sold, many owners face problems with the health and temperament of their new pets. Individual owners must also take responsibility for the overpopulation crisis.
As a result from buying from a puppy mill or corrupt breeder, many owners find that the health problems of their new pet are too big of a strain. It is important that owners research the conditions of their new puppy's previous environment. Of course, it is also imperative that pets be spayed or neutered. Accident breeding only adds to the problem of pet overpopulation and abuse. Even if the dog is purebred and believed to have above average genetics, breeding the animal will more than likely have negative consequences for the animal population, as a whole.
Owners must also take responsibility for their pets. Many times, people do not realize just how much time and money is required to take adequate care of a pet. Just like a child, pets can have unexpected expenses, and it is always important to plan ahead and make sure there are enough resources for the pet. Today, pet rescue is busier than ever in trying to find homes for neglected animals. With the economic downturn facing the United States, many people are losing their jobs and homes. As a result, thousands of pets across the nation are also becoming homeless. Unfortunately, there are simply not enough rescuers to save every animal.
Another aspect of the problem caused by the economy is the lack of funding and help for animal rescue. As more and more people are trying harder than ever just to survive, there are less people willing and able to foster and care for pets. Pet rescue is not just duty for someone else to fulfill. Ordinary people, just like you, are rescuing pets across the country. If you have the time and energy to help save the lives of neglected animals, you may want to join in the animal rescue force.

Foster An Animal
One of the most valuable services you can do for a rescue or shelter is become a foster home. Many abandoned dogs are taken in by foster homes, which house, feed, care for, train, socialize, and most importantly, love them. Rescues desperately need these homes, with more fosters, fewer dogs are left in shelters to face the possibility of euthanasia.
In fact, fostered dogs are more adoptable thanks to all the work done to socialize and care for each pooch. In addition to saving dogs, foster parents save the rescue groups money. They don’t have to pay for as much kennel space or staff.
The main requirement of a foster home is having enough space and heart to house a rescue dog. After that, the foster’s responsibilities may run the gamut. Most organizations provide mentors or assistance lines to answer questions, a helpful resource when dealing with a new canine roommate.
Your daily TLC could turn around a dog who previously had no hope of being adopted. You will help rebuild the dog’s loyalty, trust, and confidence.

Great Dane rescues is another way to help rescued dogs. Unfortunatly there are plenty of Great Danes who need loving homes becuase their owners are no longer able to care for them. Great Dane Rescues also have another benefit, if you get an older Dane most of the time they are already house broken and know simple commands.
~Kittys Corner~I have a Female Great Dane and her name is Kitty. She will be 2 in July '10. Her mother is a Blue Dane and her dad is a Black Dane. This is a picture of her here and there are lots of pictures of her on this website. This space is called Kittys Corner because when ever I am at my computer working (which is most of the time) Kitty is laying or sitting beside me with her head on my lap. So I made her a corner so she can voice what is going on in her world. ~Enjoy~
The weather is so warm and sunny. I was getting tired of the cold and being stuck in the house. Now mom has been back taking me on our walks I missed our walks. Have you been doing anything fun lately? Will you send me your pictures so I can see them? Mom even said something about starting a contest. How fun! So start taking some pictures, or if you already have some, send them in so I can see them. Send in a Picture
