Ohio Pug Rescue

Ohio Pug Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit all-volunteer organization operating a surrender, foster care, and placement program for all Pugs in Ohio – no matter their age, condition, or health. We hope that if you decide a Pug is for you, you will consider adopting a rescue dog. They are wonderful animals who have run into circumstances beyond their control and now find themselves in need of a new home with people who are willing to make a commitment to them for the rest of their lives.

 

Golden Endings Golden Retriever Rescue

Golden Endings: Golden Retriever Rescue (GEGRR) is dedicated to the welfare of homeless Golden Retrievers who have entered the rescue program for a variety of reasons. They come from dog shelters, veterinarians, animal control officers or were found roaming the streets. Owners who are unable to keep their pets often contact us for assistance. Golden Endings is staffed by volunteers and is a registered non-profit corporation under Title 501(3)(c) serving the central Ohio and southeastern Ohio areas. There are several dozen Golden Retriever rescue organizations operating in the United States at this time. These rescue groups have been formed in response to the high numbers of pure-bred dogs who have populated dog shelters. People do abandon pure-bred dogs!

 

Hand Me Down Dobes, Inc.

Hand Me Down Dobes is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization staffed by a dedicated group of volunteers committed to saving homeless Dobermans and placing them into suitable, loving homes.  Many have been abandoned or abused, and need a tremendous amount of care and rehabilitation.  This is made possible through the generosity of private donations, sponsorships and grants.  In addition to monetary donations, Hand Me Down Dobes is in constant need of other items as well.  Please see our wish list to see other ways to help out.

 

Elkhound Rescue

small rescue logoJNMRF is an all volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue of Norwegian elkhounds and elkhound mixes.  Incorporated in 2003, they are a 501c3 organization and work with volunteers around the country to find caring, loving homes for these dogs. They do not have a kennel or shelter to house dogs so they depend on volunteer foster families for holding dogs until they are adopted.  The fund provides money to pay for shelter fees, spaying and neutering, heartworm checks, vaccinations, medical treatment, temporary housing and transportation in its effort to find homes for these dogs.
