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.
Our Primary Goals
Recognize that a sustainable dog rescue program cannot exist without the cooperation and efforts of volunteers.
All volunteers must be treated with respect, and encouraged to participate according to their interests and strengths.
Volunteer education and training should be ongoing to enable the sharing of tasks.
Volunteers in charge of identified tasks will be given autonomy to complete those tasks, within the context of any policies developed by the group as a whole.
Information and resources will be shared among interested volunteers.
Volunteers will be encouraged to reach out and work with other rescue and animal welfare organizations on behalf of All Dog Rescue.
Prevent the euthanasia of any dog which can be matched with an appropriate home.
Develop foster homes for dogs entering our program. Accept adoptable dogs from any animal welfare organization or surrendering owner within the region.
Provide advice, training and instruction to owners of dogs with correctable behavior problems. Encourage owners to spay/neuter their dogs to prevent the need for a new placement.
Ensure our dogs receive superior health care prior to placement.
Evaluate the temperament of potential dogs coming into our program to ensure that appropriate matches can be made.
Ensure our dogs are spayed and neutered prior to placement.
Provide the best quality, most responsible home for each individual dog.
Ensure our dogs are in homes that will provide a safe environment with sufficient amounts of attention and interaction. Our dogs are members of the family, not just pets.
Our dogs will stay in foster care until we find a home that is a good match.
Each prospective applicant will be interviewed.
A home visit will be conducted before the adoption of our dogs.
Ongoing contact will be maintained with new homes to ensure permanent placement and to assist the dog and owners with adjusting to each other.
Provide support to any dog owner considering the surrender of a dog.
All Dog Rescue maintains a phone message so that we can be contacted with questions.
All calls will be returned within two days.
All Dog rescue is committed to helping owners keep their dogs. We provide support to any dog owner considering the surrender of a dog.
All Dog Rescue encourages owners to spay or neuter their dogs to prevent health problems and behavioural issues.
DONATE TO ALL DOG RESCUE
Donations enable us to rescue more dogs, especially sick dogs who do not do well in shelter environments and who can often heal much faster in a foster home. All Dog Rescue needs your help to raise money to spay and neuter dogs this year.
PURCHASE AN “I AM PET FRIENDLY” LICENSE PLATE
All Dog Rescue received a $3,200 grant from the Massachusetts Animal Coalition through the “I Am Animal Friendly” license program!
Let us give thanks for a bounty of dogs that we love and have helped!
For generous dogs... with hearts as big as hubbards and smiles as bright as their blossoms;
For feisty dogs as tart as apples;
For continuous dogs, who, like scallions and cucumbers, keep reminding us that we've had them;
For crotchety dogs, as sour as rhubarb and as indestructible;
For handsome dogs, who are as gorgeous as eggplants and as elegant as a row of corn, and the others, as plain as potatoes and so good for you;
For funny dogs, who are as silly as Brussels sprouts and as amusing as Jerusalem artichokes, and serious dogs, as complex as cauliflower and as intricate as onions;
For dogs as unpretentious as cabbages, as subtle as summer squash, as persistent as parsley, as delightful as dill, as endless as zucchini, and who, like parsnips, can be counted on to see you through the winter;
For old dogs, nodding like sunflowers in the evening-time and young dogs coming on as fast as radishes;
For loving dogs, who wind around us like tendrils and hold us, despite our blights, wilts, and witherings;
And, finally, for those dogs now gone, like gardens past that have been harvested, but who fed us in their times that we might have life thereafter; for all these we give thanks.
