1. Help Animals - it's only a click away!
     Hi, all you animal lovers. This is pretty simple.. The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily to meet their quota of getting free food donated every day to abused and neglected animals. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on the purple box "fund food for animals" for free. This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising. Pass it along to people you know.

2. Critters in Need Pet Rescue
     Critters in Need Pet Rescue is a non-profit volunteer organization based in Orange County, Calif. We are dedicated to saving the lives of abandoned dogs and finding them loving homes. But to do this we need your help--please foster, volunteer or donate and save a life! To download Critters' adoption application and to learn more about the adoption process, please go to our web site at: Most of our dogs are shown each Saturday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. at PetSmart (located on the corner of Barranca and Jamboree in Tustin). However, under certain circumstances, we can make arrangements to show the dog during the week on an individual basis after we've received the adoption application. And check out our blog for more updates about our dogs, such as updates about Nike, the parvo puppy that we rescued:

3. Golden Retriever Club of Greater Los Angeles Rescue
     All dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and vet-checked prior to adoption. GRCGLA Rescue adopts within Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura Counties. GRCGLA Rescue, Inc. reserves the right to deny any application. Please be aware that the adoption process is NOT on a first come, first serve basis. Our sole purpose is to find the best possible homes for our rescued Goldens. All applicants are subject to an approval process. Once your application is received, a volunteer in your area will be in touch by email or phone to set up a home visit. In most areas, this process can take 7-10 days, so your patience is appreciated. Once your home visit is completed, you will be eligible to adopt a dog that is well-matched to your home and family. You may want to watch the Adoption Event schedule listed on the home page of our website. The events provide an opportunity to meet some of our available dogs and to get to know some of our volunteers.

4. Catahoula Rescue
     Catahoula Rescue was founded in 2001 by a small group of Catahoula owners. At that time, there was no other group specifically rescuing Catahoulas and Catahoula mixes from animal shelters. Often times, these wonderful dogs had little hope of getting out of the shelters alive. Catahoula Rescue began working through the Catahoula Rescue Network. In 2003 we were incorporated as a nonprofit group. We were recognized by IRS as a 501(c)3 and received our final determination letter to that effect in April of 2004. Catahoula Rescue, Inc is an all volunteer group whose mission is to advocate for homeless Catahoula Leopard dogs and Catahoula mixes, to place these animals in permanent, loving homes, and to promote responsible guardianship through humane education. We are proud to be the original Catahoula Rescue. We have saved and re-homed hundreds of Catahoulas and Catahoula mixes, and work diligently to save as many of these wonderful dogs as possible. We are privileged to have the support of Catahoula owners and breeders across North America.

5. Common Sense for Animals - A N0-Kill Shelter in New Jersey
     This is a no kill shelter in New Village, New Jersey, Common Sense for Animals. In desperate cases, a pet who cannot be adopted out immediately can be taken in by CSA if any members who rescue animals live in the vicinity. They are dedicated to animal welfare on the premise that it is man’s dominion and responsibility to care for the animals and the environment. Education and service are the best ways to help all animals.

6. Georgia Rescue Groups
     Let's call/email some and save these kitties!

7. Pawsitive Match Rescue
     Pawsitive Match Rescue is new to town! We are a non-profit organization based out of Calgary, Alberta, dedicated to saving dogs and matching them with the right families, therefore creating a “pawsitive match”. We are an independently run non-profit organization made up of a full time group of volunteers. It all began with the efforts of two individuals with big hearts. Together, they were successful in saving over 50 dogs from Mexico and placing them into loving, permanent homes. Their efforts didn’t end there. They also worked together to recruit local Mexican volunteers for help in implementing a Spay and Neuter Program, and for help to promote responsible pet ownership. Other volunteers climbed on board and as of late spring of 2007, the group expanded into a new organization, “Pawsitive Match Rescue”. We may be new to town, however our volunteers are not new to animal rescue work! Our team is comprised of resourceful, talented, experienced and dedicated individuals with the common goal of saving dogs. WHAT WE DO: Pawsitive Match saves dogs facing life threatening circumstances, from Canada, the United States and Mexico. The dogs in our program come from shelters that have no choice but to euthanize due to over-crowding or because they are shutting down. They also come to us from local reserves, or are occasionally owner-surrenders. Pawsitive Match is involved in an education program in Mexico, particularly in Cabo San Lucas and its surrounding areas. Our volunteers travel to Mexico and work exhaustively to promote spaying & neutering and responsible pet ownership. We believe that abandoned and abused dogs deserve a second chance at a happy life, no matter where they come from. Another goal of Pawsitive Match is to provide education to the public about responsible pet ownership, the importance of obedience training, spaying and neutering, and nutrition for pets. We also provide information on a variety of topics such as, stopping puppy mills, the difference between responsible breeders vs. backyard breeders, why we are opposed to breed-specific legislation, reasons to rescue a pet and reasons to put a stop to people who keep their dogs chained-up.

8. Operation Roger

9. Best Friends Animal Society
     Best Friends is working with you -- and with humane groups all across the country -- to bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets. The sanctuary, at the heart of Southern Utah's Golden Circle of national parks, is home, on any given day, to about 1,500 dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, birds and other animals. In our home state, Best Friends manages a model No More Homeless Pets campaign with shelters and humane groups statewide to ensure that every healthy dog or cat that's ever born can be guaranteed a loving home. And Best Friends reaches across the nation, helping humane groups, individual people, and entire communities to set up spay/neuter, shelter, foster, and adoption programs in their own neighborhoods, cities, and states. The mission of Best Friends is driven by the simple philosophy that kindness to animals helps build a better world for all of us. And the work of Best Friends is supported entirely through the donations of our members and supporters. Through the generous hearts and hands of people like you, we can ensure that animals who come into the care of Best Friends will never again be alone, hungry, sick, afraid, or in pain. Thank you for being part of this work of love. To find out the latest news from Best Friends animal sanctuary and the No More Homeless Pets campaign, see our News & Top Stories section.

10. Sponsor A Pet
     It costs an average of $180 to provide care for a pet while s/he waits for a home. Because it costs less to euthanize pets than it does to care for them, under-funded shelters are often forced to make hard decisions affecting good pets. You can help change this. You can start by clicking to sponsor a pet that melts your heart on! Your contribution of just $10 may enable a pet to get cared for until a new loving family comes along. They all deserve this chance! (Not all animal welfare organizations are participating at this time. Look for the Sponsor-a-Pet icon on the Pet Notes pages.)
