Pet rescues can be found in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Animals taken into rescues are usually strays, older dogs, unwanted dogs, and those deemed not serviceable by breeders. Rescues are usually run by volunteers and depend on donations to take care of the animals. Many rescues are breed specific. Rescue dogs have been proven to be loyal, loving and make wonderful companions.
