Rescue Resources

If you adopted your cat or dog from a rescue or shelter, contact them first. Most reputable groups

will take their animals back at any time.

If you have a purebred dog you can't keep, first contact the breeder. When their owners can't

keep them many responsible breeders will take back or help place dogs they have bred.
