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.
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.
