Reasons to rescue...
Rescuing will change two lives forever — yours and your new companion's. Nationwide, animal shelters care for between 6-8 million dogs and cats every year, of whom 3–4 million are euthanized. The tragic fact is that there are simply not enough responsible homes for all of these wonderful, innocent animals. On occasion, SGRR will have puppies available for adoption that will be starting their lives as companions. While some dogs are older dogs, including well-behaved and cared for pets whose owners have become ill or died. Many rescued dogs will require continued behavioral work due to a lack of training, neglect, or abuse in the dog’s previous setting. Remember, too, that companion animals are remarkably adaptable and have a boundless capacity for love. Just because they lived with someone else first, doesn't mean they wouldn't make a wonderful companion for you!

There are wonderful humans who will provide special dogs with a forever foster home, giving them all the love and attention they could ever hope for. Because of their age and/or disability these dogs were considered un-adoptable but they are still able to live with a good quality of life. SGRR pays for ongoing medical care for these special dogs Consider being a forever foster or sponsor so that we can continue to show that dog how wonderful his or her world can be. This is the true meaning of "rescue."
