Real Dog Rescue is grounded in the belief that every dog matters.

We are a rescue built on the dreams and passion of long-time animal rescue warriors and friends, bonded by our dedication to helping dogs in need, regardless of breed, age, location, medical condition and other circumstances that may force some rescues to turn away.

Real Dog Rescue believes that wherever there is a need, we should help, so long as we have the ability and resources to do so. That ability depends entirely on the support of our community. Real Dog Rescue is not funded by any governmental agencies. We rely solely on donations from our loyal community of supporters.

While our vision is to rescue every dog, because every dog matters, our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home the dogs in our care by providing safe shelter through loving foster homes, medical care by a superior veterinary staff, and behavioral training with the help of a talented volunteer base.  We also strive to educate and emulate the best animal welfare practices, not only in our own local community, but also nationally and worldwide. 

Our hearts are open, our passion is boundless and our journey is just beginning.
