Millions of unwanted animals are killed every year in the US and dogs are at the top of the list. A rescue dog is a dog that is rescued from a possible euthanasia after being found as a stray, saved from an abusive or neglectful home by an animal rescue organization such as the ASPCA or cast aside by a puppy mill because they are too old to breed. Some simply are no longer wanted or can no longer be cared for by its owner.The reasons owners surrender their dogs vary but some of the most common excuses we hear are:
We have no time for a dog.
A family member is allergic to the dog.
The dog does not get along well with childrenIf you are thinking of getting a pet, consider getting one from one of the many rescue organizations out there. I don't have pets of my own, but have had several friends rescue dogs and they have never regretted it. They have become extremely loyal and loving pets. As if they know and appreciate what they have done for them.
Once you rescue your dog or if you already have, encourage others to do so by bragging and showing off your "best friend" with a Custom Rescue Dog Garden Flag. Look at what we've got at
