Dogs in Need of Help and Rescue Around the U.S.A.

Look for an Animal Rescue Group in your area, and contact them immediately.

What To Do If You Find A Stray Animal

  • Try to avoid calling any government agency, law enforcement, or animal control initially – as these animals may end up in a County shelter and potentially be “put to sleep”
  • Check the collar for the pet owners name and phone number
  • Talk to neighbors to see if a local pet has been lost
  • Visit a local veterinarian or shelter and have the pet scanned for a micro chip
  • If you’re in South Georgia – contact us for help and/or suggestions

Mindy GanttI hope so. When you do, that will be one lucky doggie! Every dog should be as lucky to have you as a mom.

My name is Haven! Let me tell you a little bit about my life. Recently, I was found running down a dirt road dragging a chain. I was lost and hungry but I did not know what to do or where to go. Some nice people stopped their vehicle and approached me. I looked at them from a distance because they were strangers and I did not know what they would do to me. The people started talking really nice so I let my guard down and decided that maybe they were there to help. I am happy that I did not run away because they put me in the vehicle and took me to a house and that is where I met my new mom and dad.

My mommy took me right into her arms and told me that I was safe and I would never have to worry about anything again. My mommy told me that I was perfect and beautiful. I had never heard that before. Mom and I spent some time bonding and within a few hours I met my dad for the first time. Dad is great! He loves on me and gives me extra treats when mommy is not looking.

At one time I endured a lot of pain and torment. As you can see I'm missing most of my nose and a large part of my mouth on the right side. I apologize if I slobber on you when we meet but I just can't help it. There was a time that I was forced to fight for my life. I did not want to but I had to. Some people made me fight with other dogs but I never liked it. When I was hurt I would return to my chain to heal on my own. I never even knew there was a doctor for girls like me until meeting my new family.

I love my parents! It's so easy to play with them. I'm not allowed to play with the other doggies right now because I just don't know how. Despite it all, I'm reassured daily that I'm a good girl and I've not done anything wrong. I'm very happy since my rescue. Please help other doggies like me. We are not mean and scary at heart. We do not want to hurt anything or anyone. Some people take advantage of our physical traits and train us to be something that we never want to be. I have a HUGE heart and I really love people. I hope to meet you soon! Love, Haven

We are in desperate need of short term foster homes asap. This is a critical time for many innocent dogs. Some people are afraid they will be stuck with a dog indefinitely but that is not the case. If you are able to foster I promise the dog has commitment and your home is the place to transition due to quarantine protocol that we must follow before putting them on transport for him/her to make their way to families in another state or country. We have MANY amazing dogs sitting in a city shelter with commitment but will be euthanized if people do not come forward to foster. We need your help. They need your help! You do not have to pay for anything. We just need to borrow your space. Thank You. Please Share. ... See MoreSee Less
