We strongly encourage you to continue seeking other rescues or alternatives to keep your pet with you.
Allow for TIME – having a rescue take your pet does not happen over night. Preparations must be made to bring the dog into foster care.
Please DO NOT place ad’s on Craigslist for your pet – animals often time end up in far worse off situations dealing with abuse and neglect.
We can only take as many dogs as we have foster homes for. Instead of turning your dog into DARE, would you consider fostering it until we can find it a suitable new home?
