What Is Animal Rescue?

donate to cat rescueAn animal rescue group or organization is dedicated to finding loving homes for animals through pet adoption. These groups work to rescue unwanted, abandoned, abused, or stray pets and attempt to find suitable and loving homes for them throughout their community or state. Many rescue groups are created by and run by volunteers who have a special love for animals. They often take the animals into their homes and care for them until a suitable, permanent home can be found. These rescuers will often train, handle medical issues, and solve behavior problems.

There are many rescue groups across the country, with different organizations focusing on a range of pet EASY car donation types from birds to reptiles. However, the most common rescues are for dogs and cats. Even within these groups there are specialized rescue chapters that focus on find great homes for specific groups or breeds -- for example, German Shepherd Dog Rescue. Almost every breed of cat and dog is supported by a network of national and international rescue organizations that have a shared goal -- to save animals of that breed. There are also all-breed rescues which are not limited to specific types of cats or dogs. Instead, they rescue cats and dogs of any breed and often work with specific shelters. 

What is the Difference Between an Animal Rescue and a Shelter?

Though they may seem to serve the same function, there are a few major difference between shelters and rescue groups. Shelters are usually funded and run by local governments, while rescue groups are funded mainly through donations and staffed by volunteers. Shelters typically house animals in crowded kennels, while rescues tend to place animals in foster homes.
