Everyone knows we’re officially in a recession, people are giving up their pets at a record rate. Shelters are packed to capacity, too many dogs to keep up with.

Here at Dogster we want to provide our members with a fun experience, but also with up-to-date information that’s informative. Hopefully with some of the resources available at Dogster it will help make the situation a little more manageable.

Here is a list of Dogster resources that will help you to find out more or lend a hand during these rough times:

The Dogster Railroad – This is a special place for Dogsters to help Dogsters arrange for community transport of rescues or dogs being re-homed.

The Dogster Adoption Center – Find out about adoptable dogs here. You can find shelter dogs or dogs that are at risk of being sent to a shelter.

Dogster Local – This is where you can search for animal shelters and rescue organizations in your area.

Dogster Adoption and Rescue Groups – Browse through all kinds of organizations that work to provide furrever homes for dogs.

Dogster Rescue and Adoption Answers – Browse through, ask or answer questions that have to do with rescue and adoption.

As long as this crisis exists, we here at Dogster HQ will do our best to provide our members and readers with news, information and tips relating to the situation. Please feel free to pass links to our dog and cat articles and pet-centric services to any of your pet-loving friends who may find themselves in dire economic straights over the next few months.
