About Us


Dog Rescues was created to help promote dog adoptions through the process of going through a rescue group, rather than buying a new puppy from a breeder. Each year around 400,000 dogs are euthanized in shelters and pounds, mostly due to overcrowding. Many of these dogs are still healthy and simply need a loving family to take them in. This is why Dog Rescues was created – to help educate the public about adopting as well as providing helpful articles about the needs of rescue dogs.
