This thread is to discuss rescue groups. What rescue groups would you recommend? What do you like about rescue groups? What are your opinions on rescue groups? Etc.

One thing I like about rescue groups are the breed specific ones.

If you are looking for a specific type of dog at a very low fee these are great resources!! I mean where else can you get a gorgeous Husky or a stunning German Shepherd for aprox. $150!

Not only that, often these groups foster in their own homes so you have an idea how the dog does with other dogs/ cats / or young kids. Plus let's say you are looking for something rare like a Toy American Eskimo Dog - they will often put you on a list and when one comes in they will call you right away.

Yeah! My humans never got a dog from a rescue group, but they almost did! Last year, they didn't have me. They wanted a Sheltie. First place that they checked was the shelter. Next a Sheltie rescue. They didn't have what they were looking for. They did find a Sheltie named Shelby in a rescue group about 4 hours away from us. They applied for her, but someone else got her. At least she got a home!smile I came from the shelter.

I'm a rescue! The people who had me before thought I was "too high energy." I guess they shouldn't have gotten a Puppy! Anyway, the rescue group I was relenquished to found me great forever home!!!! I get to do Agility soon. What fun!snoopy

Well glad you got a home!snoopyparty
Your story is another example of why people should research what breeds are best for them and then consider what would be best: a puppy or adult.
Good luck in your new home!wink
