Purebred rescue groups are usually run by people with in-depth knowledge of a specific breed. Rescue groups keep adoptable animals until they can be placed in loving, permanent homes. These animals may come from failed breeding operations; arrive from boarding kennels and veterinarians, where they were abandoned; be rescued as strays living on the streets; or be obtained through the cooperation of local animal shelters. Adoption fees vary, depending on veterinary and other costs that have been incurred. Follow-up counseling is usually available.
To locate a rescue group that specializes in the breed that interests you, contact your local animal shelter, check the classifieds section of the newspaper, or search the Internet. You can call The HSUS at 202-452-1100 (ask for the Companion Animals section), and we'll be happy to help you find out if there is a breed-rescue group near you. For more information about purebred rescue groups, visit the AKC National Breed Rescue Network.
When you contact a breed rescue group, be sure to find out as much as you can about the group, how it cares for its animals, how it decides which animals are adoptable, and what other adoption and post-adoption services are available.
