Archive-name: dogs-faq/rescue/part1 Version: 3.4 Last-modified: July, 1996 Current-edition: January, 1998
This is the Breed Rescue Organizations FAQ Part 1 of 4. It is arranged in alphabetical order by breed from Affenpinscher to Chinook, Chow Chow to Golden Retriever, Gordon Setter to Redbone Coonhound, and finally Rhodesian Ridgeback to Yorkshire Terrier. All-breed and speciality group rescues are listed at the end of FAQ part 4. These FAQs will be posted on a regular basis and/or you can obtain the file via anonymous ftp at rtfm.mit.edu under /pub/usenet/news.answers/dogs-faq/rescue/part1. Or send email to mail-server@rtfm.mit.edu with send /usenet/news.answers/dogs-faq/rescue/part1 send /usenet/news.answers/dogs-faq/rescue/part2 send /usenet/news.answers/dog-faq/rescue/part3 send /usenet/news.answers/dog-faq/rescue/part4 in the body of the message leaving the subject line blank. This is the 18th update of the canine rescue organizations list. Breed specific organizations are listed first and all-breed and specialty organizations are at the end. All the lines that are preceeded with a "||" are the ones containing either new information or important corrections with respect to version 3.3. All the rec.pets.dogs.info FAQ's are also mirrored at nowaksg.chem.nd.edu and can be found in the /pub/dogs-faq directory via anonymous ftp. Check out rec.pets.dogs.rescue for current discussions on rescue and for dogs in need of rescue. THANKS TO THOSE WHO DESERVE IT: Susan Mudgett and Eric Johansson have been keeping a list of New England Rescue Organizations for quite some time. They graciously sent a hard copy of their list so that we could include all of those addresses and phone numbers in this listing. If you wish to contact them directly concerning the New England area specifically, send email at scm@harvee.billerica.ma.us. Many thanks to Susan and Eric. Secondly, Marget Johnson sent us so much stuff she had to include extra postage on the envelope. Most of the information Marget provided us has been submitted to various dog related journals so this information may be available in your local library as well. Many thanks to Marget too. Thirdly, Colleen Englemann sent a listing of rescue organizations from the "Bay Area". This means the San Francisco Bay area, so if you live near there these listings are for you. The text "baylist" is added by these because many of them are just phone numbers without the name of the person. This doesn't mean you shouldn't call, we just don't know what the name of the person you will talk to is. If you do call and get a name, let me know so I can include it here. Cindy Tittle Moore (those of you who read r.p.d.* regularly know her well) has been of great help both at the beginning and the end of this project. Her expertise in FAQ's for rec.pets.dogs.* is greatly appreciated. Dominique Anfossi has provided all the Canadian information so thanks to him. This list is for the dogs, literally :-) All of the poor animals that have been abandoned for whatever reasons. So many of you are caring people and take these dogs in and care for them until they can find kind caring homes where they really belong. I hope a few dogs can find homes through our meager efforts. DISCLAIMER: I have no experience with any of these groups (except German Shepherd Rescue of New England, Inc, which is my group). We simply wanted to make this list available to you. So, we must say that we are not specifically endorsing any of these people/groups but we are endorsing the idea of rescuing a dog for a pet. If I receive more than 3 complaints about a group not responding in a timely fashion, or not treating a dog well, etc., I'll remove the group/person from the list. (Sorry it comes to this sometimes.) There is a 3-book series published with a thorough listing of breed rescue organizations available. Here is the citation: Project BREED (Breed Rescue Efforts & Education) Published by: Network for Ani-males & Females, Inc. P.O. Box 15888 Chevy Chase, MD 20825-5888 The set of 2 is $35 plus $5.05 for postage/handling, check or m.o. Note that a 3rd volume was recently published to include more breeds (such as German Shepherd Dogs and Chihuahuas), add updates, etc. If you need more information, a more complete listing, or other information about rescue, lots of information is in there. TAKING AT LEAST A LITTLE RESPONSIBILITY :-) : All complaints and errors should be brought to my immediate attention. I will have to depend on those in netland to keep me up to date. Who should be listed in this FAQ: -------------------------------- Only those people and groups who are directly involved in *rescue* activities should be listed here. Breeders, please don't list yourselves as rescue contacts in the Rescue FAQs as a way to find potential adoptees for your returned and/or adult dogs from your breedings. You have the resources to network and find good homes for your dogs. These FAQs are for groups and individuals who help those dogs that need *rescueing*. If you notice I have left out someone in your favorite breed then please tell me. If I have included someone that no longer serves in this capacity, tell me so I can delete them from the list. Otherwise keep this packed away in your files somewhere and pull it out when someone asks you about getting a new dog. Rescues can be such good pets for many people, so don't automatically assume everyone needs a puppy. (You may find the best puppy here as well!) Sincerely, Janice Ritter ritter@aolnorth.com ___________________________________________________________________ Rescue FAQ File 1 includes: Affenpinscher to Chinook.
