Furry Friends Foster and Rescue logoFurry Friends Foster and Rescue, Inc., is committed to helping the dogs who need us the most!
We are a small group of committed rescuers in CT and focus primarily on dogs located in CT pounds. We do occasionally bring dogs into the rescue when the owners are unable to continue to care for them, and also occasionally take dogs from states other than CT. We maintain an active CT animal import license.
Our rescue is approved by the United States Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) public charity. We are incorporated in the State of CT and also registered as a non-profit organization with the CT Department of Public Charities. We are a Bronze member of Guidestar. Our EIN is 46-4846415.
Our rescue address is 64 Thomaston Road Harwinton, CT 06791. As a foster based rescue, all of our dogs live in private foster homes throughout the state of CT. We do not have a facility.
Our focus as a rescue is to help the dogs who need us the most – dogs with medical and/or behavioral needs who need a little extra in order to become happy, healthy, balanced dogs and make wonderful family members.

Iberian Horse Rescue, a 501 (c) (3) charity, started as a social media net-working page to save horses of Iberian type that were found in auctions and kill pens, headed for slaughter. In 2014, IHR branched out and a hand’s-on rescue was formed.
IHR’s rescue efforts are supported 100% by public donations. Only with the help of our donors, sponsors and volunteers is IHR able to rescue, rehabilitate, re-train, revalue and re-home these generous horses.
Our work gives the horses we save the chance to have a dignified life worthy of their heritage as treasured war horses!

Saint Clair County Animal Welfare Advocates logoSaint Clair County Animal Welfare Advocates started with two rescue friends discussing St. Clair County (IL) Animal Control. It evolved into many discussions about what could be done to create change.  Via the advice of some fellow advocates, it turned into a long project of gathering data and seeking solutions that were no or low-cost.  Solutions that would require some work, but yield dividends not only for the animals, but for the community.

It is our ultimate goal to work WITH SCCAC in a cooperative and progressive partnership. Exploring together, opportunities for improvement.  To strengthen the lifesaving effort and compassionate care through innovative initiatives at the county shelter.

Our goals at Saint Clair County Animal Welfare Advocates :

We want to make a significant contribution to reduced killing in shelters through treatment of treatable animals, training, adoption, foster, and rescue.

We want to make a significant contribution toward decreasing the number of pets entering shelters through spay and neuter, reclaim, retention & re-homing.

We see a need to help shelters manage “at risk” shelter dogs and cats.
We promote workable tenets of No-Kill sheltering as listed in the No-Kill Equation and defined as saving over 90% of shelter animals.

We see a top-notch Community Adoption Program as one key element (including off-site adoptions, community involvement, spay/neuter, behavioral modification, medical support, pet retention guidance, pet re-homing support, value for money) to saving lives.

Saint Clair County Animal Welfare Advocates is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization striving to elevate St. Clair County to a No-Kill community through innovative programs

Front Range German Shepherd Rescue LogoColorado Front Range German Shepherd Rescue is a small group of German Shepherd lovers in the Denver area who volunteer our time and talents to help homeless pets find new families. We are always looking for new volunteers – providing temporary foster homes for these dogs is the big need, but there are many more opportunities to help. Please consider joining our efforts.

We also help owners who, due to unforeseen circumstances, find themselves unable to keep their dogs.
Adopting Your New Canine Family Member
All of the Front Range adoptable dogs are home fostered, or in cases where no foster home is available, some may even be boarded. We do not have a shelter, so there is no central location where all the dogs can be viewed.

great pyrenees logoTo help Great Pyrenees dogs find loving and caring homes. We the owners and breeders of the Great Pyrenees unite together to form Sierra Pacific Great Pyrenees Club as one family, equal and unified in purpose and conviction, dedicated to do nothing out of selfish ambition, but always to preserve, protect, promote, and edify the breed of the Great Pyrenees and the people who love them.

Here at SPGPC we are dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, rehoming, loving and celebrating Great Pyrenees dogs.

They were bred in the French Pyrenees Mountains and their purpose was to protect the sheep and livestock from predators such as wolves and bears. These dogs while loving and gently can become formidable opponents if their home or the people they love are in danger.

Because they are guardian dogs, they tend to be on duty and are known more often than not to bark. There are remedies to this situation if it becomes bothersome and we would be happy to share those options with you, if you are interested.

They do shed, however, their hair is long enough that it vacuums up easily without becoming entwined into fabrics. However, spayed and neutered dogs shed a lot less because of hormonal changes from the surgery.

They typically do not slobber. They can be messy drinkers, but will not leave snail trails down your walls with a shake of their head.

They are generally very good family dogs and love children.

They are wanderers and will roam. They must be confined in a secure fenced (6-ft.) area. They must never be tied or staked out.

They sometimes can be dog aggressive, because of their background as guardians, however, opposite sexes of dogs can be mixed and matched depending upon each dog’s individual traits and personalities.

Most of the rescue dogs come with some kind of baggage. They may have been mistreated and need to be loved and nurtured. All information about specific dogs will be shared when a potential new home is being considered.
