PREVENT ANIMAL CRUELITY
|Moxie was left tied to a pole without food or water. Fortunately she was rescued
and placed with a new owner. The only thing Molxie wanted was to be loved.
|Thousands of dogs are "put to sleep" each year because they cannot find a good
home. There are more than 77 million dogs in the United States.

Rescue groups exist for most types of pet—for example, rabbit rescue or bird rescue, but are most common for dogs
and cats. For animals with many breed types, many rescue groups specialize in specific breeds or groups of breeds.
For example, for dogs, there might be local Labrador Retriever rescue groups, hunting dog rescue groups, large-
dog rescue groups, as well as general dog rescue groups. Widely recognized as an umbrella organization for animal
rescue groups, Petfinder.org is an online, searchable database of more than 13,000 shelters and adoption
agencies across the United States, Canada and Mexico. The American Kennel Club maintains a list of contacts,
primarily within breed clubs, that will provide information on breed rescue groups for purebred dogs in the United
Animal shelters often work closely with rescue groups, because shelters that have difficulty placing otherwise
healthy and pet-worthy animals would usually rather have the animal placed in a home than euthanized; while the
shelters might run out of room, rescue groups can often find more volunteers with space in their homes for
temporary placement. Some organizations (such as Young at Heart Pet Rescue, www.yahpetrescue.org and Old
Dog Haven) work with older animals whose age would likely cause them to be euthanized in county pounds.
