What it is: Our mission at GSAR is to rescue animals who are destined for euthanasia in high kill facilities across the country. Our goal is to ensure the overall health of every single dog we rescue and make sure they live happy lives with families who love and cherish them. Each one of our rescues receives full medical treatment and is also spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. Then, through our very successful adoption program, we work tirelessly to place each animal in a loving forever home. As part of a broader solution, we are hoping to raise funds to launch low or no-cost spay/neuter programs in the communities from which we rescue. Our special foster program is truly unique and allows us to assess both the personality and specific needs of each individual animal. This crucial information is used to select the best possible home for each rescue. We pride ourselves on matching each of our animals with his or her ideal forever family.
Why I love it: We have personally adopted a dog (our Brooke!) from this organization, as has a family member, and the quality of the care of the dogs and adoption process were excellent. By being connected to this organization I have seen hundreds of dogs saved over the past few years and then given loving homes. Thanks to the many wonderful fosters they have, you know each animals personality much better than a shelter could do (thanks to Brooke's foster we warned that she snores...loudly!) No sad, depressing, guilt-inducing picture from this group, no sir, no ma'am. Just descriptions of what makes each animal unique and special and why it would be a great fit for special famillies.
Why YOU should donate: Money donated to this charity will be used right now, there is an instant effect from your dollars to their quality of life and the amount of dogs saved from kill shelters. Donate today and better yet, go check out their site and see if a special pooch is in your future.
