Rescue Groups

When puppy mills and backyard breeders flood the market with animals, they reduce homes available for animals from shelters and rescue groups. Every year 6 to 8 million animals enter shelters nationwide. Sadly, only about 15 percent of people with pets in the U.S. adopted them from a shelter or rescue group, leaving so many deserving pets left behind. Below is a list of helpful links to lots of different kinds of animal rescue groups. We have grouped them by cats at the top, dogs below, then other animals below that.

If you would like to recommend an animal rescue group for our website, please contact caris@hshobart.org.
