All Dog Rescue is an all volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue of Massachusetts' dogs in need and matching each with appropriate and responsible owners.
ADR Receives MAC Grant
July 10th, Natick, MA – All Dog Rescue, Inc. (ADR) is pleased to announce that it received a $3,200 grant from the Massachusetts Animal Coalition through the “I am Animal Friendly” license plate program. The grant will be used towards All Dog Rescue’s spay and neuter services. ADR’s primary goal is to rescue dogs in need, and to match each adoptable dog with appropriate and responsible owners. We are also dedicated to reducing the pet overpopulation problem in Massachusetts by spaying or neutering every dog that passes through our organization. In order to pay for veterinary fees and accomplish this goal, we rely on adopter donations and grants from organizations like the Mass Animal Coalition.
Ronit Furman, Fundraising and Grant Coordinator of All Dog Rescue said: "ADR is very grateful for the grant from MAC animal coalition. The funds will be applied to Spay and Neuter of rescued dogs, a critical component of our rescue program. We are proud to join MAC in reducing the homeless pet population in Massachusetts, and to be collaborating with such a wonderful organization. The ‘I’m Animal Friendly’ license plate program is a terrific way to show support for this important public program. I recently purchased a car and selected the
license plate when registering my car at the RMV. It was easy and took no additional effort compared to a regular plate. Just ask for it at the RMV or purchase online!”
All Dog Rescue currently has adorable, wonderful dogs in all breeds and sizes available for adoption. Each of our dogs lives with a foster volunteer in their home, giving the dogs a loving and comfortable environment. Our dogs are all spayed or neutered, and receive all vaccinations and other required medical care during their foster stay. Interested adopters can go to our website at www.alldogrescue.org to see photos and descriptions of the adoptable dogs. If interested in adoption, the next steps are to fill out an online adoption application and arrange for a time to meet the dog at the foster volunteer’s home. As many rescue adopters will tell you, rescue dogs - from puppies to seniors - are extremely loving and devoted, making them some of the best pets you could ask for! Please consider adoption of a rescued dog, and always spay or neuter - both for your dog’s health and to reduce the population of homeless animals.

This is how rescue works...
On Feb 11, Springfield police rushed to a house after being called about someone being held at gunpoint. That turned out to be a hoax, but what the police did find caused several to run outside and vomit from the stench. More than 30 dogs and two cats were confined in the house. Many were living in their own feces in a basement strewn with wooden crates. Animal Control officers from TJ O'Connor Animal Shelter was called in to remove the animals. They learned that most of the dogs are purebred miniature pinschers. Based on calls from around the country we know that some are AKC champions. All were were being bred for profit. Many of the dogs have untreated medical problems. Most appear stunned by human touch. All Dog Rescue was called to help. In the course of 24 hours, we found two volunteers to drive to Springfield and back. Four foster homes opened their doors. Our veterinarian went to work on her day off to examine, vaccinate, schedule spays and neuters, and treat various infections and ailments. Volunteers bathed the dogs and clipped nails before delivering them to the new foster homes. We think these dogs will make it despite the deprivation and maltreatment. We will learn about their personalities as they begin to respond to us. We have one male and three females, all adults. We will post them when they are ready for adoption. Let us know if you are interested. These really are "rescued" dogs.
Foster Homes Needed
All Dog Rescue is a non-profit, all-volunteer rescue organization, which relies entirely on its network of foster homes to help save dogs' lives. We do not operate a shelter or facility of any type -- all the dogs we have in our program live in foster homes until they find their forever home. The more homes we can open up to our four legged friends, the more lives we can help save.
