DOGWOOD RESCUE is a non-profit "specifc breed" resscue group who rescues "sporting" or "gun" dogs. A small network of dedicated volunteers, some of whom have been quietly re-homing animals for over 30 years. we care passionately about animal welfare, The animals we help are:
~ abandoned because of cruelty, neglect or hardship;
~ strays, slated for extermination in over-crowded shelters;
~ dumped, after years of faithful companionship simply because they are old;
~ discarded for flimsy excuses such as "no time" for the animal;
~ dispensed with by relatives who don't want them or can't keep them due to the owner's illness or death. Note; If you love your pet, remember to put him/her in your will. Do not expect your heirs to take care of the animal.
Sometimes, changes in family dynamics such as marriage, divorce, moving, illness, or pregnancy may warrant re-homing, but owners should explore all viable options before giving up a pet. Animals are not disposable toys to be thrown aside when inconvenient; they deserve the same care and consideration as human children.
DOGWOOD'S mission is to re-home homeless, unwanted or abused animals after ensuring that they are neutered/spayed and evaluated.
DOGWOOD is also committed to re-homing senior animals.
In North America, roughly 50,000 dogs, and even more cats, are euthanized EVERY DAY, by gassing, heart stick (without anaesthetic), or by shooting. In Canada alone, the estimate is 7,000 per day. This unnecessary waste of life is heartbreaking and could be ameliorated through spaying and neutering of pets.
DOGWOOD primarily re-homes Pointer breeds, Vizslas,and Weimaraners. These dogs are called "sporting or gun dogs. However, we also rescue "crosses" of these breeds as well as those listed below:.
German Short-haired Pointers
German Wire-haired Pointers
Wirehaired Pointing Griffons
