Rescue Groups


Caution is always urged whenever you consider placing an animal with a person or organization involved in animal rescue, or whenever you accept an animal from such a person or organization. It is suggested that you ask for references and information and do some investigation. We cannot guarantee that all of the individuals and groups listed here are legitimate and carry out their business in a responsible manner, although we do our best to assure that that is the case.

Although everyone involved in rescue speaks of the "adoption" of animals, it is customary -- and necessary -- for rescue groups to charge a fee. The amount of these fees and any terms of payment are entirely between you and the rescue organization. Do not hesitate to ask about such matters in the beginning of discussions.

Neither the listowners, Pam Bishop, Pauline Marshall and Bonnie Anthony, nor the webmaster Debbie Perry, accept any responsiblity for problems that may arise for either party in connection with contacts that are made as a result of this listing.

Please note: The listowners reserve the right to refuse a listing to anyone regardless of cause and are not obligated to justify doing so.

If you would like your rescue listed here, please contact the webmaster
